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.

    My first Apple iMac Purchased in September 2007. Very impressed. Not single problem since the day I bought it. Since then, I have purchased a 13″ MacBook in January 2009 for my daughter and the wife purchased a 15″ MacBook Pro in March 2012. Very happy the the iMac & MacBooks that we have purchased. I wonder why I ever used a PC in the past.
