Having read that review, I don't think the iMac has improved all that much in performance from the original 2.16 ghz C2D white model I have. Taking into account the quality of old and new 20" monitor, one might argue that the old ones are better.

Not only are the new 20" displays inferior, they're also glossy. I don't think Apple realizes how much of a hang up that is for some people. The rest is simply awesome. I really like the new aluminum styling.
