    I knew I wouldn't make it much longer. I thought I could go at least a year with my iMac... :eek: Oh well, does anyone know if the ram for my 20" intel core duo imac will work in the new 24" core 2 duo?

    Thank you for being the first one on the entire internet to post a head-on, clear comparison shot of the 24" and 20".

    I went to the Apple store and saw the 24" iMac. Wow it's huge. I would have to sit 4 feet away from that giant or else I would go dizzy... :D

    Wow! It makes the 20 inch look like a dwarf. Pretty impressive!

    I compared my original Sony 17" CRT screen to the real estate on my Dell 24"
    and you're looking at something like 2 1/4 X more surface area to work in.

    My wife and I took the kiddos out for some ice cream last night at the shops at LaCantera. We cruised by the Apple store and they had it out. I was like HOLY CRAP, that thing looks great. I played with it for a minute and it was noticeably snappy. I got all the way to the register to buy it and the guy goes, do you have a student ID? I said yes, he said okay, you get $100 off. Already I was thinking, damn, I cannot believe I am doing this. So I think, here is my out. I told him, I left my ID in the car, I will be right back! I walk out of the store thinking, I KICKED my habit!! Now, just get in the car and drive home.

    But...... My wife was waiting with the kiddos and goes, where is the imac!! I explained that I kicked my habit and bailed. Then she gives me this sad face and says, "Ahhhhh, I really liked it, oh well....." Then I said, "I didn't know you wanted it too!" That was all that I needed to hear to run back in and plop down the debit card, lol. :p

    Looks big. Soon I'll replace my mini mac ppc 1.42 with one of those, or the 20", or a C2D MBP.

    Does it "feel" much faster than your 20"?

    Just keep Spleen Jr. away from that LCD. ;)

    Very nice, B. I played with one in the Apple Store last week while I was getting a sleeve for my lappy and I really liked it. First Apple product that has tempted me in a long time.

    *jealous* :D
