Apple Introduces 20-inch iMac -- Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Apple has released a new version of the flat-panel iMac that offers a 20-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 1680 by 1050 pixels. The screen is also brighter then the smaller models and offers a higher contrast ratio. As far as other functional specs go, the 20-inch iMac is identical to the 17-inch iMac, with a 1.25 GHz PowerPC G4 processor, 256 MB of RAM, 80 GB hard drive, SuperDrive, and all the usual ports. The one interesting deviation from the 17-inch iMac is with the weight - the 20-inch iMac weighs 40.1 pounds (18.2 kg), 17.3 pounds (7.8 kg) heavier than the 22.8 pound (10.4 kg) 17-inch iMac. The new 20-inch iMac is available immediately for $2,200 in the stock configuration, with all the usual build-to-order options. The 15-inch iMac remains priced at $1,300 and the 17-inch iMac still costs $1,800. [ACE]
