Very impressive indeed. From CNN via Mac OS Ken:
“Oppenheimerâ€™s Yair Reiner did a spec-by-spec comparisons with comparable Dell and Hewlett-Packard machines. His surprising conclusion, given Appleâ€™s reputation for premium pricing: he found the new iMacs to be a better value than competing Windows-based products. A side-by-side comparison suggests the new iMacs match up favorably against Dell and HPâ€™s All-in-Oneâ€™s on a price-to-performance basis. For example, the $1,499 model has a faster CPU and RAM with better or comparable graphics, and is still $100-$250 cheaper (though it lacks a TV Tuner, ~$60-$100 upgrade).â€
The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
