    20" or 24"
    Hi I haven't touched a mac since I was in elementry!! I am looking at getting the new imac and need some opinions...

    Whats your opinion? 20" or the 24"? Does the 24" really worth the money? What size would you get if you have a choice to make the decision again?

    20in. I think the 24in is too big for an iMac.

    24" and I would pair it with an eyetv and it would double as a tv in my bedroom...

    Depends on your needs and how much you can afford. I saw both the 20" and 24" at the Apple Store and the 24" is absolutely gorgeous. If you can afford it, definitely go with the larger screen (though 20" is nothing to sneeze at, it too looks amazing)

    If you're going to go, go all out! I just looked at both the 20" and 24" yesterday and I would say that I would have to get the 24" even if it meant saving money and waiting a little longer.

    Although 24" is sure:
    - bigger
    - nicer
    - more impressive

    do you really need it?
    and is it worth your money?

    I think a 20" would just do fine too,


    I think most of the pc users have 20" or less, don't think 24" is used that much

    I am now on a 17", and that is just fine in my eyes, but 20" is in my eyes just the best

    24 inches is amazing. If money is not an issue, definitely 24 inch. And pump up the RAM or else...

    When I'm santa Claus yes

    Money difference is too much for me to just go for the 24"

    Specs:
    imac 20" 216 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 1GBSDRAM, 250 GB hd, Airport Extreme, Bluetooth 2.0
    If that "little" bit of money doesn't matter, then better to go 24" and not be sorry later.

    Although, I have the 20" and I've never been sorry yet. The 20" seems much larger when you get it home on a desktop.

    BUT....if you're really wanting the 24, then I'd say go for it. Good luck and let us know what you decided.

    I would definitely get the 24" if I could afford it, but the 20" i have is definitely a very good choice not too small not too big.

    I got the 24" and love every inch of this big beautiful screen with plenty of real estate.....and I'll never think "maybe I shoulda..." But depends on your needs, wants, budget, etc....

    iMac 20", 2.4ghz, 2GB/320GB
    I measured out the 24" at home, and it's bigger than my TV! I would get the 20" unless I was going to use it as a TV, then I'd get the 24". The 20 incher would still be great, imho.
