I agree. I don't have a 24" iMac, but I have an Acer 23" widescreen monitor with my recently-purchased Mac Mini, and you'll really appreciate the extra screen real estate.Go for the 24" if you can afford it. You'll appreciate the extra space. It's all relative. It'll seem very big at first, but then you'll wonder how you ever used a smaller monitor.
Wow, I didn't even realize it was from 2007!Guys this is a dead thread from over 2 years ago. Apple if you intended to reopen it you should have clarified 2 items for new readers. 1. $1694 for a 24 inch iMac is ridiculous as they were selling for $1399 3 months ago. 2. The 24 inch has been replaced by the 27 inch so if you can get the 24 Inch you should get a clearance price to go with it.
