>If your iMac maxes out at 2 Gigs it may not work with Lion anyway; check System Profiler. If yours is a Core Duo (versus Core 2 Duo) iMac, Lion won't install, because your iMac doesn't support a 64-bit OS.

ON the other hand the original Core Duo Macs can best be described as the 'Yikes' of Intel Macs...they needed to go on sale, Intel wan't yet shipping the C2D, so Apple used what they could get at the time.
