At A Glance

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.

Manufacturer’s Description

The 24-inch iMac provides professional performance along with the convenience of an all-in-one design. Like its 17-inch and 20-inch siblings, it features the 64-bit Intel Core 2 Duo processor with speeds ranging from 1.83GHz to 2.33GHz. The processor delivers up to 50% more performance than the previous 20-inch iMac. It also doubles the amount of L2 cache, the twin cores sharing 4MB between them. The result? Performance, making it easier - and more fun - than ever to work with digital photos, movies, music, and the web.
