From the Manufacturer
Cast your gaze on the ultimate eye-opening experience: the new faster, bigger, and brighter iMacs. Starting at under $1000, the most personal of personal computers comes out packing a powerful punch. That's thanks to the new 64-bit Intel Core 2 Duo processor, you'll find in each and every new iMac.
All in the family
The iMac's display pivots to whichever angle is best for you.
The fastest iMac ever, the 24-inch iMac provides professional performance along with the convenience of an all-in-one design. Like its 17-inch and 20-inch siblings, it features the new 64-bit Intel Core 2 Duo processor with speeds ranging from 1.83 GHz to 2.33 GHz. The new processor delivers up to 50% more performance than the previous 20-inch iMac. It also doubles the amount of L2 cache, the twin cores sharing 4 MB between them. The result? Turbocharged performance, making it easier--and more fun--than ever to work with digital photos, movies, music, and the web.
The simple six-button Apple Remote gives you control over your music, movies, and photos from anywhere in the room--and it stows away neatly (and magnetically) on the side of your iMac when you're not using it.
Whether you're surfing the web, editing video, managing photos, or enjoying face-time with far-flung friends, you'll thoroughly enjoy the lush visual experience of working on iMac. With excellent color saturation, all three models feature a cinematic 16:10 wide aspect ratio that's perfect for watching movies. And iMac delivers a beautifully bright display with the new 24-inch model lighting the way. In fact, its a full 40% brighter than the 20-inch model.
