So, it might not let current users upgrade to the latest and greatest, but it allows users to upgrade down the road to a more powerful video card as long as apple supports it and hence, extending the life of their computer by a year or two before spending another 2k on a completely new system.

If it's serial ATA, it will work. You will hear it because it's louder. Also the hard drive cooling fan will most likely run alot more increasing your noise level.

For the Early 2006 Core Duo owners, I have been running a 2.33 Core 2 Duo processor in a 20" iMac Core duo machine. It has been working great. No firmware needed. So if you like the size of your Early 2006 iMac, then don't fret that you should have waited. Just do the upgrade when the CPU drops in price.
Caslon, thanks for posting all the pics and for all your insight. I was just wondering, in your opinion would it be possible to cram a second hard drive (master/slave configuration) ? There certainly seems to be plenty of room in there and I would think the proper cable would do the trick.

I sure Apple has plans future plans for use of the MXM graphics Module.

So has anyone tried a PC MXM module like the 7900GS in the 24"? Maybe using the Titan kext?
I'm seriously jonesing for a new Mac, and it's either this or a Mac Pro, but I'm not liking the higher latency and price of the FB-DIMMs, nor do I really need 2 Xeons.

Did you takes pics of the processor with the heat sink removed? If you have any could, you post them. I am planning a 2.16 to 2.66 GHz upgrade when CPU prices fall in the summer.

To my understanding you could reuse the iMac's panel but you would have to find a replacement for the missing TFT electronics that can be found in a standard TFT display. Somewhere I read that the iMac uses a Samsung panel. Appearantly, the only 24" display that Samsung builds is this one: http://monitor.samsu...i...&show=specs
So, there is a chance that the electronics in the 244T are compatible with the iMac's panel. One would still have to find a cheap (probably defect) Samsung display with working electronics, though.
The correct name of the panel mentioned would be Samsung LTM240M2.
You can find out which displays are using it here: http://www.flatpanels.dk/panels.php
Is anyone feeling lucky enough to actually try it?
There seem to be some standard controllers for flat panels available. The SVH1920 found here http://www.digitalvi...s/products.php/ might work but they say you need an additional "inverter" and power supply. This is getting confusing! :-O
