Trying to decide between a refurbished iMac 24-inch 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB memory, 640GB hard drive, 8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M with 256MB memory, and a refurbished iMac 21.5-inch 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 21.5-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen display, 4GB memory, 1TB hard drive, 8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW), ATI Radeon HD 4670 graphics with 256MB memory. Price difference is $200.00.

Upgrading from a Quicksilver 933 with 17" Studio display, 1.25gb ram, 320gb hard drive, OS 10.3.9.

Opinions?

My personal opinion: I would opt for the newer model 21.5" iMac. Well worth the $200 difference for what you get. The difference in screen brightness, color and contrast alone is worth it. Besides being LED backlighted.

Regards.
