I have read very credible reports that there are some issues with cpu intensive tasks like flash playback on the new iMacs. As soon as they fix it, I am out to get one. Anyone know if it is fixed yet?

According to the surprinsingly exhaustive release notes of Mac OS X 10.6.2:

this update addresses video playback and performance issues for iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2009) and iMac (27-inch, Late 2009) computers that may occur in some situations while AirPort is turned on

Additionally reports on MacRumors say the update was as advertised and the issues are gone.
