    On Apple's site it says the iMac can burn CDs at 24x. Does anyone know if it actually burns that fast? How long does it usually take to burn a complete 700MB CD? Also, does anyone knows how fast DVDs burn on these new iMacs?
    Thanks for any replies.

    google would be a good start to find this information.

    but to actually reach speeds of 24x, you need 24x media.

    The burning speeds of the iMac are listed on the Technical Specifications part of the iMac website.

    My ComboDrive on my iBook is rated at 24x for CD-R burning and it takes around 4-5 minutes for a full size burn.

    Yeah that's where it says 24x. Well 5 minutes isn't bad to burn a CD but the iMac is kind of tilted so maybe it doesn't burn as fast? I dunno.

    The speed should take the tilt into account...
