    Hey guys,

    Just been browsing around the MacForums and noticed a few threads about the new Intel Core Duo 2 Chip being in the iMac.

    Is it worth waiting for it?

    And roughly when will it be coming out?

    Is it really worth the wait for the Intel Core Duo 2 Chip?

    Cheers.

    What are you going to be using the imac for? These intel one's are bitchin. If you can wait, then wait, August seems earliest date of arrival. Could be later for imac though

    I would just get the iMac now and then maybe spoil yourself with a MacBook Merom down the line ;-)
