Default Thinking of a new Mac

I am getting antsy, and think it may be time to retire my four-year-old G4 (bought when G5s were standard — I skipped G5s altogether, the only Mac class I skipped).

Anyway, as a pretty much retired person I do not think I could justify a Mac Pro, but the new iMac core 2 duos look pretty good (I am particularly smitten by the 24-inch).

I see it has one ethernet port, two FireWire ports (one FW800 with the 24-inch model — is that of any use?), and three USB2 ports (plus two USB 1.1 ports). 250GB hard drive (upgradable to 500 or 750GB, but no room for two far as I can see). Writes DVDs and CDs. Bluetooth and Airport-ready.

Any comments from those who know this hardware? What might disappoint me?
