The 24'' is bigger.
I'm not to sure, but I've heard the 20'' has a smaller colour palette, and has a smaller viewing angle. Also its smaller.
The 24'' inch is great (I have one) it gives you so much screen real estate that its amazing! However it does take up more desk space...
But to really recommend a screen-size, we'd need to know what you are into/what are you planning to do with it.
If you are the stereotypical 'basic' user, then the 20'' will do just fine.
But if you do Photoshop, or Video then 24'' is the way to go.
If you have the money, and spend a lot of time at the computer the go with the 24'' inch.
But again, to really tell you what screen size you need, list the stuff you do.
Also, what's with the "A Mac Noob - Turning to the Dark Side..."? Y'know there's a reason why white is a symbol of Apple.
