    What are the differences between these two systems other than the built in iSight, Front Row software, and thinner case?

    I notice a refurb 2ghz on the Apple site that has the same HD, same RAM, and same Superdrive. The negatives are slightly slower CPU and bus.

    Any differences in video card?

    It's quite easy to find out this information. There is indeed a difference in video card. The Radeon x600 XT is considerably faster than the Radeon 9600.

    Another apparent improvement is that the HD is cooler, well below the maximum specified.
