Some of the gap between the Mac Pro and iMac lines closes with this model, which comes equipped not only with a 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo chip (upgradeable to 2.33GHz as a build-to-order option) but a FireWire 800 port in addition to a FireWire 400. (Other Core 2 Duo iMacs feature two FireWire 400 ports.) The resolution on this iMac's 24-inch display is the same as what you'd get with a 23-inch Apple Cinema HD Display. With the exception of the Nvidia GeForce 7300GT graphics card, other specs match the 20-inch 2.16GHz iMac.
