This probably won't interest most of you who have long ago had a hands-on experience of your own, but I want to post some brief impressions of the Intel Core Duo iMac. I tried it today in the Apple store in Towson, MD, and I thought I was going to be blown away by the difference in speed in Safari and iPhoto. To my surprise, I found the "feel" to be only slightly faster than my 15" G4 Powerbook. It was a relief to know my PB, purchased in July '05, isn't that much slower than the current hardware when it comes to the things that I do most. I won't pretend I wouldn't rather have a MB Pro than my PB, but my PB does all that I need it to do, and does it well!
