Apple updates iMacs for Tiger


In addition to moving its iMac G5 line over to Tiger, the latest version of Mac OS X, Apple has also upgraded the system's hardware, adding Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, a 128MB Radeon 9600 graphics card, and 512MB of memory across the line. 2GHz processors are now available in both the 17" and 20" models, too.

Interestingly, the $1499 17" iMac at 2GHz costs the same amount as a single-processor Power Mac G5 1.8GHz. However, the PowerMac has only half the memory and hard drive capacity of the iMac, a slower front-side bus, and a GeForce 5200 Ultra with only 64MB of memory. The Power Mac doesn't come with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or an LCD display, either.
