  • Gorgeous screen. More included RAM and higher total capacity. Improved graphics. Four USB 2.0 ports. Monster hard drive.
  • Still no matte display option. No FireWire 400 port. Compact keyboard lacks number pad. DDR3 RAM still very expensive.

  • The Apple iMac 24-inch (GeForce GT 130), the companys new top-of-the-line iMac, is a moderate refresh. The new Nvidia motherboard chipset and discrete graphics give it a leg up on the previous high-end model, and CTO (configure to order) options give ...

  • Apple moves closer to the sweet spot with the iMac (Nvidia GeForce 9400M). This new all-in-one gives you the screen real estate you crave, along with strong multimedia capabilities, and the covetable Apple design, all for a reasonable price....
