24-inch iMac review
Apple's 24-inch iMac, announced earlier this month, is getting rave reviews from the press. Following PC Magazine's review posted earlier today, Computerworld talks about a wow factor in its hands-on review of a full-loaded 24-inch iMac, which offers 30 percent screen space than the 20-inch model: "But you can forget all about the inner workings when it comes to pulling this particular all-in-one desktop computer out of the box. The only thing you're going to notice right away will be the screen. As it tugged it out of the box, two or three other online editors popped up to oooh and aaah, and one of Computerworld's graphics gurus -- who has a year-old G5-based iMac -- admitted flat out that he was 'drooling.' And he wasn't talking about the fast Core 2 Duo processor." The review notes that the Core 2 Duo is between 30 percent and 50 percent faster than the previous generation Core Duo processors, but that that full-loaded iMac ($2,749 from BTO) may be a bit of an overkill for most users.
