Yup....Core 2 Duo iMacs are here and immediately available. There's also a new 24" 'HD' model with a very bright 1920x1200 screen.

Also of note is the Mac Mini no longer offering Core Solo as a CPU option (no price changes, just a free second core :)).

Aye, those are nice upgrades for sure. Was looking at either the Mac Pro or iMac 24" but since I already have an Apple Cinema Display 23" the Mac Pro seems more solid :D

So here in something interesting, the iMac 24" uses an MXM-II slot for the videocard. So in theory you should be able to upgrade the videocard to another MXM-II card in the future. i.e. 8600GT :)

All of the Macs will eventually be Core 2 Duos of course...

Supposely the MacBook Pros are next for upgrades.

Does anyone know which mobo these computers has? Also what socket? I see there is a C2D 4 MB cache at 2 ghz (it cannot be E6600)?

Well in the MacBook they solder the damn CPUs down so you can't replace them.
