New iMacs

Today Apple released upgrades to its line of iMac computers, and unveiled a new member of the fam’, the 24” iMac. The entire line now sports the Core 2 Duo processors as well. Very nice. I hope my cute little 20” can’t tell I’ve been coveting other rigs.

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 1.83GHz to 2.33GHz. 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 4MB between them.

Go get one. [update: Impulsive Highlighters Unite! has a nice analysis of these new machines.]
