Apple has updated all-in-one iMac with the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors and the most powerful graphics ever available in an iMac. The ultimate all-in-one desktop computer includes faster processors with 6MB L2 cache, a faster 1066 MHz front-side bus across the entire line, and 2GB of memory standard in most models. And the 24-inch iMac now offers a 3.06 GHz Intel processor and the high-performance NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS graphics as options. Available immediately, the new iMac starts at just $1,199. Design-wise there is no change in the new iMac in fact it’s exactly same as the previous generation iMac. There are two 20” models and two 24” models. The first 20” model comes with 2.4GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 250GB hard drive, SuperDrive and 128MB ATI Radeon HD 2400XT for $1199. Configuration wise this is the leanest iMac, 1GB RAM and 128MB HD 2400XT graphics card is really bad if you are paying $1200. This 20” model only offers updated processor and nothing else compared to last generation 20” iMac, its should have been priced $999. The second 20” model has updated 2.66GHz processor and 2GB RAM all the other configurations and price is exactly same as previous generation 20” iMac that was available for $1499. The first 24” models also has the same story, it comes with updated 2.8GHz processor and 2GB RAM. Other configurations and $1799 price remains same as before. The second 24” model with 3.05GHz processor, 2GB RAM, 500GB hard drive and 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS is the most improved iMac and is the only iMac in the line-up that justifies its $2199 price tag. My problem with the new iMac line-up is that they should have added better graphics cards and 2GB RAM should be standard for any computer above $999 price tag.
