I suppose it depends on which model of iMac...

Are you kidding.

One is twice as fast and several years newer.

If your using a 400 mhz computer than 700 will be an improvement but def not even in the same ballpark.

Soulwar is right - which model of which machine?

The inference I take from your question suggests that you're thinking of the first generation all-in-one eMac/iMac models (the 'Lumps' my friend unkindly calls them). Mactracker gives you a good comparative reference for performances. The fastest 1-gen iMac was 700 MHz, the fastest eMac was 1.42 GHz.

Personally, I like my eMac and its performance. It ploughs rather than races through demanding tasks but it's very reliable.
