Summer's Over. Let The Product Announcements Commence

Arik Hesseldahl

As rumored, a great big new 24-inch iMac hit the market today. That in itself is already pretty impressive. But even more impressive is the fact that the entire iMac lineup now contains an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Here's the specs:

* 24-inch widescreen LCD display;

* 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor;

* 1GB of 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM expandable to 3GB;

* 8x SuperDrive with double-layer support (DVD+R DL/DVD?RW/CD-RW);

* PCI Express-based NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT with 128MB GDDR3 memory;

* built-in iSight video camera;

* built-in AirPort Extreme wireless networking & Bluetooth 2.0+EDR;

* 250GB Serial ATA hard drive running at 7200 rpm;

* mini-DVI out (adapters for DVI, VGA and Composite/S-Video sold separately);

* built-in stereo speakers and microphone

Not bad. Next comes the iPod- and Mac mini-related media and entertainment products - including the iTunes Movie download service, that I expect to be central to Apple's special event in San Francisco on Sept. 12.
