    Not only do the new macs run up to 50% faster then they used to, they now ship with a ton of other extra features. The tower-free computers now have the option to ship with a 24" monitor, instead of the classic 17" or the optional 20" monitor. The Prices for these elegant machines has dropped considerably. A 17" model only costs $999 with an E6300, while a 20" model will cost $1499, and a 24" model will cost $1999. The iMac's ship with an iSight camera, as well as a remote.

    It's OK IMO. Not the best, but good if you have small space. The Core 2 Duos will increase its performance I'm sure.

    Yet they still put a shitty video card in them. Such a shame.
