Yes, the new iMac is out there with all of the crazy new specs... crazy.

It's really amazing how far the iMacs have come.   Sure, even the Mac minis are really little muscle bots, but the 24" iMac is nothing short of fantastic.

The 24" iMac is setup with a 3.06GHz Core 2 Duo.... dang.  That's faster than my secondary machine.  (2.5 Dual PPC).  For $2,199, you get the whole rig - monitor + keyboard, 2G RAM - with the ability to put a Terrabyte of storage inside the thing.

If you're a pro user, you might have external drives set up, but the iMac is for the home Mac user.  A Terrabyte of storage??

Why would you need so much storage at home?

Well, consider all of the new HD footage that your consumer video camera can take.  Consider all of those high resolution digital pictures you can take with your still camera. 

Think about all of those iTunes movies that you might want to download....

... a single Terrabyte starts to fill up pretty quickly.

Unfortunately, there are no upgrades for the video card on the Apple website, but the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS with 512MB will do pretty well.
