While there may be a wait until Apple's new G5 iMac actually ships in the UK, prospective anxious users can read the developer note for the product.

Published by Apple last night, the document offers detailed information about the machine - which Apple claims is more-or-less user serviceable.

The developer notes are also available as a PDF download from Apple's site, and contain extensive information regarding the new, iPod-inspired new consumer desktop from Apple.

"This developer note is intended to help hardware and software developers design products that are compatible with the products described here," Apple says.
