21.5-inch iMac Core 2 Duo/3.06GHz (Nvidia graphics)

At a Glance

The screens in the 21.5-inch iMacs are a welcomed change over the 20-inch, 6-bit displays in previous models. The $1199 21.5-inch iMac is a very attractive deal, but you'll get more storage space and better graphics performance if you step up to the $1499 21.5-inch iMac.
