Apple has updated its entire iMac product line, adding the new Core 2 Duo Intel processor and a new model with a mammoth 24-inch widescreen display.

It is powered by a 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 1 GB RAM, 250GB Hard-drive, Super drive, NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT with 128MB memory. Other features include Bluetooth 2.0, iSight video camera, Wi-Fi, Apple’s Front Row media software, and the iLife ’06 suite.
