First let me apologize, I realize that there are a lot of comparisons done on these boards and that it gets annoying. Sorry. This will be the last one from me. I'm making an iMac purchase and these are the following things you should know: I'd like to save as much money as possible. I want a 24" screen. I don't do much other than word processing, internet, photos, video editing/movies/tv, music, chatting, the occasional game...really basic stuff. I want the specifications of my computer to last through the next 4+ years of software and OS's and be compatible. Below I have two similar models with different processors and different L2 Caches and System Buses. I plan on upgrading the RAM so just ignore that. So...which should I get? Refurbished iMac 24-inch 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 24-inch glossy widescreen display 4MB Shared L2 Cache 800MHz System bus 1GB memory 320GB hard drive 8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO with 256MB memory Built-in iSight Camera for $1,349.00 OR Refurbished iMac 24-inch 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 24-inch glossy widescreen display 6MB Shared L2 Cache 1066MHz System bus 2GB memory 320GB hard drive 8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO with 256MB memory Built-in iSight Camera for $1,549.00 Will the extra $200 help me be more prepared for the future?
