    was thinking of a refurbished older unit...they seem to have 700ghz, 800ghz and up but I don't know if that is fast enough to watch tvonline, streaming video etc..:confused:

    Aloha ChristalBlue, and welcome to The Forums.
    I’m currently using an older (pre-Intel) iMac G5 and it works great for watching hulu, e-mail, web browsing, photo editing etc., so even the lowest end of the new iMacs should be just fine for your needs. You only need to decided if you want a 20” screen or a 24” screen.

    Which models have 700, 800 MHz and up?

    I only see previous generation and current generation models in the Apple refurbished store.
    Unless you were speaking of another store.
    Any iMac with an Intel processor will do fine, and the last G5 iMacs will also suffice.
