I have to say, as a Power Mac aficionado, the iMac G5 was not my favourite. It was more reliable than the water-cooled G5s (the quad notwithstanding) but it gets hot and low end iMac G5s aren't as much faster than the upper end (and much more interesting) Luxo G4s.
If I had to have a G5, it would either be a fast air-cooled (like the dual 2.3), or the quad (which I have and use daily).
If I had to have an iMac, I'd want a G4 (which this message is being typed on).
I don't hate the iMac G5, but it's not one I consider particularly a good iMac or a good G5, and it's not interesting enough to be collectable.
