    Hey guys,

    torn between two 2007 iMac 24".

    one has these specs:

    Apple iMac7,1 / T7700 / 4GB
    Ram / 320GB HDD / HD2600

    and two:

    Apple iMac 7,1 / X7900 / 2GB
    Ram / 500GB HDD / HD2600 /

    they are same price, and come with 12 month warranty, but is it worth taking the 2gb and upgrading, as that is 2.8 compared 2.4 standard and like i said, worth it over the 4gb?

    sorry guys,

    if i can get a quick answer would be great, i just don't want it too be sold anytime soon as they are a big online retail store also.

    thanks, RTJ

    I'd go for the more powerful one. DDR2 Ram is as cheap as chips. Good luck.

    The 2007 imac is easy to upgrade the ram through a flap on the bottom so I would get the one with the more powerful processor.

    Well we're probably too late to give advice here but I thought I'd offer some clarification, as someone who still maintains one of these 2007 aluminum 24s.

    4GB vs 2GB is night and day, since these have pretty mediocre (performance-wise) hard drives. Way more of a benefit than going from 2.4GHz to 2.8GHz on the CPU.

    Assuming that the poster is price-sensitive and getting this machine for about $300 or so, $60 to bring the RAM up to 4GB (from 2 1GB DIMMS) is actually quite a lot proportionately.

    I'm hoping he went for the 4GB machine anyway...
