    Hi, I looked in the Canadian online Apple store, but can't locate the 24 inch iMac.

    Is the 24 inch iMac discontinued?

    (I searched MR too, didn't see a post here regarding this)

    Yea, it was discontinued when the 21.5" and 27" came out last october. Best place to look would be ebay, craigslist or kijiji if you specifically want the 24"

    I'm from Canada as well and I've been keeping my eye on the refurbished page almost daily and noticed that once or twice a week the refurbished store would show 20" and 24" models at good discounts (~35%). They wouldn't last long though and, again, I only saw them once a week so you'd need to check once or twice a day if you're interested in that model specifically.

    With the updates, who knows if they'll still show up but it's worth keeping your eye on.

    Why would anyone want the 24"? They're old and slow now, 2 generations old. The 21.5" has got almost the resolution as well (1920x1080 vs 1920x1200).

    Because 21.5 is too small.

    Because 27 is too big.

    Specs like resolution is not always the only part of the equation.

    If you can fit a 24" on your desk, you're 99% likely to be able to fit a 27" on your desk too.

    They are the exact same height (20.5 ins), the 27" is just 3.2 ins wider.

    Too big doesnt mean it doesnt fit in the space on your desk or whatever.

    It means its TOO BIG.

    Cant people have an opinion anymore without someone going "You're wrong"?

    ... old and slow?

    The last high end 24" iMacs had a 2.93 Core 2 Duo and 3.06 Core 2 Duo(which was equivalent to 3/4 previous 21.5" and 27" generation processors, they were actually slightly better since they had 6MB of L2 cache) both with a $50 option for an ATI Radeon 4850(Which is equivalent in power to the 5750(5850M) Apple is using now). Calling them slow and old is laughable at best. They also didn't have the yellow tinge problem.

    a Screen is NEVER too big my friend, wether is for TV or computer. I believe that on computing or technology in general going back doesn't make any sense.
    I like to stay on top of the game!! :apple::):D
