24-inch iMac Core 2 Duo/2.93GHz

The iMac continues to be a desktop Mac that's powerful enough to please both general consumers and professionals. The 24-inch models are an attractive buy, as they offer more memory and storage capacity as well as better performance than the lone 20-inch iMac. And this model's discreet graphics help it perform graphically-intensive tasks.
