    Currently own:

    24" 3.06 imac
    8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS with 512MB memory
    UPGRADES: 4gb ram / 650 gb HD

    Bought it for a great price. Now apple is knocking on my door again. I also have a 13" mbp which I was going to get an external monitor for, but now the new iMacs eliminate that need. Are the graphics cards comparable to the new 27" models?

    Please Help!!

    Thanks.

    Why? The op is going to get a 27" iMac so the screen is going to look better than anything else out there

    honestly though op if you really want to make the upgrade get the core i7 quad. Otherwise I would just suggest keepin what you got.

    Probably the base 27", but if I have enough money I'll get the Quad-core.

    Why would you get An iMac to use as a monitor to turn your laptop into a desktop when the iMac is a desktop and it's much more powerful than the mbp
