Oh, I get that this isn't a sexy upgrade because it doesn't double the year-over-year performance. But the point of this Intel chip is to basically do the exact same thing while using less electricity. In a laptop, that matters a lot. In a desktop; well, it still makes the iMac slightly more efficient power-wise (and heat-wise). May not mean much to you, but spread across the millions of computers that will be built around this chip, it just might.
