    The iMac listed on the left is a friend's ~2yo Aluminum 24", that on the right is my ~3 yo white 24"... how much more powerful / faster will the newer model be than mine, when using especially for processing digital photos, videos, etc.? Also, is there good site that can show what the values are for these models? Thanks!

    It will be marginal, but noticeable.

    www.mac2sell.net for prices, GeekBench Result Browser for benchmarks.

    Thanks simsaladimbamba. Wow... only 50 bucks different according to that mac2sell site:

    Your Computer is a iMac 24 inch Intel Core 2 Duo 2.40 GHz 256 / 300 GB / superdrive
    The Mac2Sell Quoted Value is : $ 800

    Your Computer is a iMac 24 inch Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16 GHz 256 / 250 GB / superdrive
    The Mac2Sell Quoted Value is : $ 750

    Interestingly that site doesn't take into account the GPU ATI Radeon HD2600 Pro [256MB] vs the NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT [128MB].
