Apple Releases 24-inch iMac, Has Core 2 Duo

Apple has quietly released a 24-inch widescreen iMac that features the Intel Core 2 Duo processor and an nVidia 7300GT. While Apple's U.S. online store doesn't seem to have been updated quite yet, this new, giant iMac is all over many of the company's Euro stores.

Thanks to the increased screen real estate, the iMac's resolution has been upped to 1,920x1,200 and is powered by a 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo. The rest of the system's specs appear to be similar to the 20-inch version, that is, 1GB of RAM, an 8x DL DVD burner and 4MB of L2 cache.

Right now, it looks like it's taking Apple a little while to update all of its online stores to reflect the new addition to the iMac line, but, as the saying goes, the cat's out of the bag now. Converting from Euroland money, the 24-inch iMac will cost around $2,621.
