Yep. Ironically, the imac is also almost as small as a laptop, given it's slim form factor.
I could not pass up $199 for that lacie. I may never fill it, but there is 3x the space I have ever had on a system (the most before being 320gb).
I was more concerned with proper amounts of ram. The imac ships with 1gb, which on a mac seems to work *ok.* 4gb will rock, it would be like 16gb on a pc, thanks to app bloat.
