Apple updated its all-in-one desktop line to include next-generation Core 2 Duo processors, which boost the amount of shared L2 cache to 6MB and the frontside bus to 1,066MHz. The top-of-the-line iMac sees its processor boosted to 2.8GHz and its shipping memory upped to 2GB. Build-to-order options include a 3.06GHz processor and the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GS graphics card with 512MB of video RAM.
The new iMacs are faster than the previous models, but without any increase in price. The 2.8GHz iMac, in all its 24-inch glory, is a stunning machine and is bound to make an impression in your home or office.
