Apple upgrades Macs.

http://www.apple.com/imac/

Apple today has bumped up the specs of their iMac and Mac Mini line. The iMacs now have a new 24" big brother. And each iMac comes with Inte's Core 2 Duo, which if you check benchmarks, is one VERY powerful 64 bit piece of metal. These puppies are going to scream with Apple's 10.5 64bit OS.

Next up are the Mac Minis. Which now are fully Duo Core. Giving you the option to have 2x 1.66GHz chips in a single machine or 2x 1.83GHz chips. They are the weakest machines in Apple's offering but still make excellent machines for switcher/avargae users alike.

Right now the Core 2 Duo pull ahead by a large sum. And thats comparing then you AMD's top 64 chips. I think if Core 2 Duo keeps this up I'll move to Intel for my next upgrade. The chips LOL at today's most graphically intense games.
