Ars reviews Intel-iMac

Ars Technica has posted an , featuring a few new details about the chipset Apple as well as other details, including notes about the bundled Front Row application and performance of Apple's Rosetta technology for running PowerPC-based applications on the Intel-Mac: "Rosetta should be more than adequate when it comes to general-purpose office apps, but for the heavy-duty stuff like Photoshop and other CPU-intensive applications, you'll notice a slowdown." On the benchmarking front, the new iMac Core Duo outperforms its iMac G5 counterpart in most tests and does quite well against the faster, more powerful dual-G5 Power Mac. Ars concludes that Apple finally put a "decent video card" (ATI Radeon X1600) in its consumer Mac, but notes the lack of user-serviceability, lack of native Intel applications, and lack of support for shared iTunes playlists in Front Row.
