    well I'm the glad owner or a new 24 inch iMac today. sold my macbook to my buddy and bought this. now one thing i noticed with all macs at the apple store is that they are all really fast. one click on application on the dock and they bounce once and open right up. now is this due to processor speed or memory because i noticed that they all are running on 2 gig of memory((or at least the ones that i looked at))? i bought the base 24 inch with the 2.4 ghz processor. i have 1 gig of memory right now but would like to max it out. will this help in my search to have a fast computer like the ones in the apples tore? thank you in advance

    Simplest solution is to just buy a 1 GB chip and put it to 2 GB total. OWC/Crucial/Newegg are all good.

    As you've stated that's the only difference. Plus, remember that these computers have opened the same program over and over again and will have it in the cache much like having a web site in cache in safari so when you browse the finder it is probably quicker on those computers.

    (Enjoy your computer and buy a now cheap 1 GB chip of RAM)
