>> Hi, I'm Rich Brown, Senior editor for CNET.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at Apple's new iMac. So this new Mac is pretty much identical to the old one. The only difference is that it has a new processor and an option for a higher end graphics card. This is the 24-inch model, but there's actually a 21-inch as well. This one comes with a 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, although you can go as high as 3.06 Gigs. If you wanna pay a little bit more. Aside from the spec update, there's really not a lot to talk about here. It has the same webcam built-in, Bluetooth, IR, 802.11 and Wi-Fi, so the same attractive package. It's nice and compact. It is a giant screen, but that was available before. It's pretty much your standard iMac, just faster. From a value standpoint, we found the system a little bit more expensive from the comparable Windows PC with a 24-inch model that bundled-in. It has the same slot load optical drive in the side as other versions of the iMac. This one is still standard def though. It's a DVD burner, which is great, but it's not Blu-ray. If it were not worst, pretty much over at this point, so it would be nice if Apple decide to take the HD road. It also has the same ports on the back. You get two audio ports, a handful of USB ports, FireWire 400 and 800 and Apple's laying for proprietary video output. So, all in all, we still love this iMac and we still think it's an Editors' Choice. So, I'm Rich Brown and this is the Apple iMac 24-inch 2.8 GHz. ^M00:01:17 [ Music ]
