    $50 price difference
    Core 2 Extreme has 500GB HDD, Core 2 has 320GB HDD
    Core 2 has faster frontside bus and more L2 cache
    Core 2 Extreme is pre-refresh

    Everything else looks the same...which would you buy and why?

    I'd get the 2.8 GHz Penryn 6 MB L2 Cache iMac. I don't think you'll be terribly desperate for onboard hard drive space with FW400/800 love.

    In Apple's refurbished Mac store.

    Since 100 percent of the recommendations :))) were for the Penryn 2.8GHz, I pulled the trigger on that one this morning.

    Good work. I've found that buying a refurbished Apple is well worth the wait to save some money and the service is just as good too. :D
