    I'm about to buy an imac. One question I have is is the 3.06GHz that much faster than the 2.8GHz? Is there a noticable difference?

    Also, what advantage would there be to buy the 24' monitor over the 20'?

    Lastly, I plan on doing internet, email, itunes, and creating slideshows and DVD's from my pictures and maybe creating my own webpage. Will the 2GB of memory and 320GB hard drive be enough to do these kind of tasks or should I upgrade to 4GB of memory and 500GB hard drive? Thanks.

    Your advantage comes in waiting three weeks and buying the new model instead of this one.

    The 24in monitor is full-HD, and has a significant additional amount of square inches of awesome. It also sits in front of a much higher spec graphics card. Its also better. In every way. You want the bigger iMac. You wouldn't have asked about it if you didn't.
