    I wanted to do some research on this processor, do you guys know what is the processor model code for the iMac's processor?

    Is it a mobile processor or a desktop processor?

    What is the difference between this one and this one?

    I presume this is the iMac's processor-

    and this one is going for double the price-

    Besides the obvious ghz in speed increase, what justifies for a much higher price?

    The Core i7 860 in the iMac( along with the i5 and C2D) are desktop processors.
