    Let's say that I want to upgrade a certain part of my Mac without buying a new one. Is there any way to upgrade that part?

    Yes, you would have to open it up lol

    The Screen is magnetically locked to the iMac, so it's not that hard to take out.

    Though if you're paranoid that you might damage something, you could always ask an Apple Genius/Tech person to help you do it.

    Oh good because I want a the graphics card that comes with the 24" one but I can't have it because that's too big for my workspace =(.

    Edit: Oh and how do you magnetize/ unmagnitize the screen?

    I'm not sure if that card would fit in the 20'' iMac. If it did, I think they would've added that as an option for online ordering.

    Heck, I'd want that card too x]

    They didn't add the option because they want more people to buy 24" so that they make more money....I still love Apple

    I'm gonna buy another iMac or possibly a Mac Pro instead when USB 3.0 fully releases and N gets sorted out.

    It's WAYYYY Faster. And faster than Firewire 800. Transferring files I mean.

    Don't worry, Firewire 1200 or whatever will surpass it
