    If I'm looking at buying a second hand iMac should I stay away from the Core Duo and only look at Core 2 Duo? Are there any known hardware failures for these models?

    thanks

    personally, my core duo imac gave me no problems. but unless there was a huge price difference, I would hold out for a c2d.

    i will suggest c2d, but cd only support up to 2G ram. (if my memory serves me well)
