Apple iMacApple thought its all-in-one iMac line needed a boost. Step forward the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors to produce the most powerful graphics ever available in an iMac.

The 24-inch iMac now offers a 3.06GHz Intel processor and the high-performance Nvidia GeForce 8800 GS graphics as options.

Not that Apple is breaking the bank. Prices start at just £799, with the iMac including 6MB L2 cache and a faster 1,066 MHz front-side bus across the entire line, with 2GB of memory standard in most models.

“The iMac’s gorgeous aluminium and glass all-in-one design has been an incredible hit with our customers and is just one of the reasons Mac sales are growing three and a half times faster than PC sales,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide product marketing.

“With the latest Intel processors, a faster new graphics option and more memory, customers now have even more reasons to love the iMac.”

The new 20-inch iMac, with an RRP of £799, includes:
* 20-inch widescreen LCD display;
* 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with a 1,066 MHz front-side bus;
* 1GB of 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM expandable to 4GB;
* 250GB Serial ATA hard drive running at 7200 rpm;
* A slot-load 8x SuperDrive with double-layer support (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW);
* ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT with 128MB GDDR3 memory;
* Built-in iSight video camera;
* Built-in AirPort Extreme 802.11n wireless networking & Bluetooth 2.1+EDR;
* Mini-DVI out (adapters for DVI, VGA and Composite/S-Video sold separately);
