Intel iMac first look

Digit today provided its first look at Apple's Intel iMac, discussing some of the major differences between the new model and the previous iMac G5. "This latest generation of Apple's all-in-one runs circles around its predecessor--most of the time." The review covers the 23-second startup time, the fact that Apple applications such as iPhoto and Safari open before bouncing twice in the dock, and Apple's Rosetta emulation software. A recent interview with Tom Boger, senior director for desktop product marketing at Apple shed some light on the iMac's Core Duo 2-GHz processor. "I think the key there with the Intel Core Duo, what makes it unique in the marketplace from a processor standpoint [is that] it's giving us this dual-core performance. But unlike other dual-core processors, it does so with low power consumption," Boger said. "should you decide to plunk down your money now at the nearest Apple store, well, you won't be disappointed when you get your new iMac home," Digit reported.

    Tried the iMac

    I went to CompUSA and tried out the 20 inch iMactel. Wow, it was fast! Apps open up in a blink of an eye. For Safari, I clicked on the icon in the dock, and it only jumped half a jump and it was on screen. I use a bunch of different PC configurations in my school district, and that is one area I've always felt PC's were ahead of the Mac. Using the browsers always seemed so fast. Let me tell you, the new iMacs leave any PC I've used for browsing in the dust. When clicking on the back button, it seems as if you havn't even released the button and the page is already there. FAST!!! If I would've had the money, I would have taken one the these babies home.
