The new aluminum construction would replace the iconic white plastic designs of previous imacs. The new intel iMacs featured a base CPU speed of 2GHz with later models allowing for an increase to 3.06Ghz.

This model came as either 20″ or 24″ with the display set in to the aluminium and sealed in with a black bezel. This made for a sleek modern look compared to the now aging white plastic.

Base configurations started at 250GB hard drives with upgrade options of 320 and 500. The base models graphics were powered by the ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT with 128MB of GDDR3 memory.

Stacks of connectivity as with previous models included Wireless N, Built in bluetooth and an IR receiver. It also featured the now standard range of FireWire and USB ports as well as gigabit ethernet and digital audio input/output.

For some strange reason apple were still including white plastic mighty mice with these models although the supplied keyboard was now aluminum. The usual software of iLife 08 was thrown in with the package.

    Brilliant – Still going strong.Has never given me any trouble. Has never crashed. But the 2GB memory is too little. Needs 4GB.
