Greetings all, I was wondering if anyone had greater insight into this choice. I have the option of buying a brand new 24" (Late 2006) model, the last one before the redesign to the aluminum form factor, for $1200. This price is for an upper end spec'd machine with a 2.16Ghz C2D. Given that the least expensive current iMac is $1200, with the least expensive 24" variant being $1800, is the price vs performance difference enough to go with the newer iMacs. Some things I've been considering: 1) Not going to be used for gaming. The new iMacs have greatly increased graphics horsepower. Comparison between the ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT 128MB GDDR3 vs the NVIDIA GeForce 7300GT with 128MB GDDR3. 2) 667Mhz vs 800Mhz system bus. 3) New form factor, keyboard, Leopard and iLife '08. Though I've already purchased the last two. 3) Geez, a beautiful 24" screen would be great. 4) More than enough savings for $169 AppleCare. Overall the older iMac seems like a good deal. I just wanted some feedback from the board to help ease outlay of money. Please let me know if I've missed anything important. Thanks.
