New Intel iMac passes test drive

iMac passes test drive

Given a test drive, the new iMac proves to be faster than older versions but has yet to show its full potential. According to Matthew Yi of the San Francisco Chronicle, the biggest drawback for owners of the new Intel Macs is the lack of compatible software. Software intended for older Mac versions currently must be translated through the Rosetta program as they run, thus making the program's response time much slower and while Apple has updated many of its consumer software, its professional applications applications will not be Intel-native until March. ""I was able to play the World of Warcraft online game and also surf the Internet using the Safari browser without much of a hitch, while importing video clips from my digital video camera into iMovie HD. The same was true while importing photos from my Canon PowerShot A80 digital camera to iPhoto.""
