Hi,
just found a good deal on the new 21" imac. My question is that its only has a 256mb card in it- ati radeon 4670. This scares me a little as everything is becoming so GPU intensive. Is there an option to upgrade this card down the track.? It will be primarily used for runnning cs4 design suite. Any advice would be much appreciated

Unless you play games or do heavy video editing, that GPU will be more than enough. Very few applications actually support e.g. OpenCL which unleashes GPU's power for regular CPU tasks. For normal usage, GPU will be idling most of its time
