[136] Apple iMac G3 Original (Mid 1998)

Apple iMac G3/233 Original (Rev. A & B) (Mid 1998)

Apple iMac G3/233 Original - Bondi (Rev. A & B) The original Apple iMac - Bondi (Rev. A & B), based on the Columbus architecture, features a 233 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor, 512k backside level 2 cache, 32 MB of RAM, a 4.0 GB EIDE hard drive, and either ATI Rage IIc graphics with 2 MB of VRAM or ATI Rage Pro Turbo graphics with 6 MB of VRAM packed in a "bondi blue and ice" colored, "retro futuristic" all-in-one case design with a 15-inch "crystal clear" CRT display.

Apple promoted the iMac as a revolutionary new Mac for the Internet age, hence the "i" prefix, and it was unique not only for its look, but also for being the first Mac to include USB ports -- a then new standard from the Wintel world with support for up-to 127 devices -- replacing SCSI, ADB, and Mac serial ports. It also was unique as it was the first Mac to lack a floppy drive.

The "revision A" iMac (M6709LL/A) and "revision B" iMac (M6709LL/B) are identical with the exception of graphics systems. The "revision A" model -- introduced May 6, 1998 and shipped August 15, 1998 -- has ATI Rage IIc graphics with 2 MB of VRAM and the "revision B" model -- introduced October 26, 1998 -- has ATI Rage Pro Turbo graphics with 6 MB of VRAM.

[131] Apple iMac G3 Fruit Colors (Early 1999)

Apple iMac G3/266 (Fruit Colors,Early 1999)

Apple iMac G3/266 (Fruit Colors) The Apple iMac G3/266 (Fruit Colors) features a 266 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor, 512k backside level 2 cache, 32 MB of RAM, a 6.0 GB EIDE hard drive, and ATI Rage Pro Turbo graphics with 6 MB of VRAM packed into a colorful "retro futuristic" all-in-one case design with a 15-inch "crystal clear" CRT display.

It was offered in five different colors -- lime (lime green), strawberry (pinkish-red), blueberry (royal blue), grape (purple), and tangerine (orange-yellow).

Apart from different color options, the iMac G3/266 (Fruit Colors) models were quite similar to the iMac (Revision B) that the line replaced, but shipped with a larger 6.0 GB hard drive and lacked the "Mezzanine" internal expansion slot and IrDA capabilities.

[121] Apple iMac G3 (Slot Loading,Late 1999)

Apple iMac G3/350 (Slot Loading,Late 1999)

Apple iMac G3/350 (Slot Loading - Blueberry) The Apple iMac G3/350 (Slot Loading - Blueberry, No Firewire), based on the Kihei architecture, features a 350 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor, 512k backside level 2 cache, 64 MB of RAM, a 6.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a slot loading 24X CD-ROM drive, ATI Rage 128 VR 2D/3D (AGP 2X) graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, and a Harmon-Kardon designed sound system packed into a translucent "blueberry" all-in-one case design with a 15-inch CRT display.

Unlike previous iMac models, the iMac "Slot Loading" series is convection cooled for quieter operation and lacks the internal metal housing for a more translucent appearance.

Compared to the iMac G3/333 (Fruit Colors) series that it replaced, the iMac G3/350 (Slot Loading - Blueberry, No Firewire) has a slot loading CD-ROM drive -- as one would expect given its informal name -- as well as a faster processor, faster system bus, faster RAM (and more installed by default), a faster hard drive standard (Ultra ATA), a faster video processor with more VRAM, a superior sound system, and support for an optional AirPort (802.11b) wireless card.

Apple iMac G3/400 DV (Digital Video,Slot Loading,Fruit,Late 1999)

Apple iMac G3/400 DV (Slot Loading - Fruit) The Apple iMac G3/400 DV (Slot Loading - Fruit Colors), based on the Kihei architecture, features a 400 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor, 512k backside level 2 cache, 64 MB of RAM, a 10.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a slot loading 4X DVD-ROM drive, ATI Rage 128 VR 2D/3D (AGP 2X) graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, and a Harmon-Kardon designed sound system packed into a translucent colorful all-in-one case design with a 15-inch CRT display.

It was offered in the same five colors -- lime (lime green), strawberry (pinkish-red), blueberry (royal blue), grape (purple), and tangerine (orange-yellow) -- as the earlier "Fruit Colors" iMac models, but can be quickly distinguished by the slot loading optical drive, as well as the dual Firewire 400 ports.

Unlike previous iMac models, the iMac "Slot Loading" series is convection cooled for quieter operation and lacks the internal metal housing for a more translucent appearance.

Like the low-end iMac G3/350 (Slot Loading - Blueberry, No Firewire) released at the same time, the iMac G3/400 DV (Slot Loading - Fruit Colors) has a slot loading optical drive -- as one would expect given its informal name -- and support for an optional AirPort (802.11b) wireless card. The "Blueberry, No Firewire" and "DV" models also share a system bus, RAM standard (PC100), hard drive standard (Ultra ATA), video processor, and sound system all superior to the iMac G3/333 (Fruit Colors) series that the "Slot Loading" models replaced. However, the iMac G3/400 "DV" -- which stands for "Digital Video" -- has a DVD-ROM drive instead of CD-ROM, and adds dual Firewire "400" ports and a VGA video out port.

Apple iMac G3/400 DV SE (Slot Loading) The Apple iMac G3/400 DV Special Edition (Slot Loading), based on the Kihei architecture, features a 400 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor, 512k backside level 2 cache, 128 MB of RAM, a 13.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a slot loading 4X DVD-ROM drive, ATI Rage 128 VR 2D/3D (AGP 2X) graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, and a Harmon-Kardon designed sound system packed into a translucent "graphite and ice" all-in-one case design with a 15-inch CRT display.

Unlike previous iMac models, the iMac "Slot Loading" series is convection cooled for quieter operation and lacks the internal metal housing for a more translucent appearance.

The iMac G3/400 DV Special Edition (Slot Loading) is effectively identical to the iMac G3/400 DV (Slot Loading - Fruit Colors) released at the same time, but the "Special Edition" model is housed in a more conservative "graphite" colored case -- rather than five "fruit colors" -- and shipped standard with more RAM (128 MB) and a larger hard drive (13.0 GB).

Like the iMac G3/400 DV (Slot Loading - Fruit Colors), the "Special Edition" model has a slot loading DVD-ROM drive -- as one would expect given the informal name of the series -- as well as dual Firewire "400" ports, a VGA video out port, and support for an optional AirPort (802.11b) wireless card. It also shares a system bus, RAM standard (PC100), hard drive standard (Ultra ATA), video processor, and sound system all superior to the iMac G3/333 (Fruit Colors) series that the "Slot Loading" models replaced.

[64] Apple iMac G3 Summer 2000

Apple iMac G3/350 (Summer 2000)

Apple iMac G3/350 (Summer 2000 - Indigo) The Apple iMac G3/350 (Summer 2000 - Indigo, No Firewire or AirPort) features a 350 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor, 512k backside level 2 cache, 64 MB of RAM, a 7.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a slot loading 24X CD-ROM drive, ATI Rage 128 Pro (AGP 2X) graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, and a Harmon-Kardon designed sound system packed into a translucent "indigo" all-in-one case design with a 15-inch CRT display.

The iMac G3/350 (Summer 2000 - Indigo, No Firewire or AirPort) is rather similar to the iMac G3/350 (Slot Loading - Blueberry, No Firewire) that it replaced, but the "indigo" model uses an "indigo" case instead of "blueberry" and lacks internal support for AirPort (802.11b) as well as Firewire "400".

However, the iMac G3/350 (Summer 2000 - Indigo, No Firewire or AirPort) model did ship with a slightly larger hard drive (7.0 GB compared to 6.0 GB), a slightly better video processor with the same amount of VRAM (8 MB), and replaced the oft panned Apple USB Keyboard and "hockey puck" Apple USB Mouse with the Apple Pro Keyboard and Mouse. It also sold for US$200 less (US$799 instead of US$999).

Please note that Apple decided to refer to this line as the "Summer 2000" series, which refers to Summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

The iMac G3/400 DV (Summer 2000 - Indigo/Ruby) is rather similar to the iMac G3/400 DV (Slot Loading - Fruit Colors) that it replaced, but the "Summer 2000" systems use either an "indigo" or "ruby" case instead of one of five "fruit colors" -- lime (lime green), strawberry (pinkish-red), blueberry (royal blue), grape (purple), or tangerine (orange-yellow).

However, the iMac G3/400 DV (Summer 2000 - Indigo/Ruby) systems shipped with a CD-ROM drive instead of a DVD-ROM drive and a slightly better video processor with the same amount of VRAM (8 MB). It also replaced the oft panned Apple USB Keyboard and "hockey puck" Apple USB Mouse with the Apple Pro Keyboard and Mouse, but sold for US$300 less (US$999 instead of US$1299).

Apple iMac G3/400 (Early 2001 - Indigo) The Apple iMac G3/400 (Early 2001 - Indigo) -- for all intents and purposes a re-issue of the "Indigo" configuration of the iMac G3/400 DV (Summer 2000 - Indigo/Ruby) -- features a 400 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor, 512k backside level 2 cache, 64 MB of RAM, a 10.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a slot loading 24X CD-ROM drive, ATI Rage 128 Pro (AGP 2X) graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, a Harmon-Kardon designed sound system, and Firewire "400" ports packed into a translucent "indigo" all-in-one case design with a 15-inch CRT display.

This model sold for US$899, however, US$100 less than the iMac G3/400 DV (Summer 2000 - Indigo/Ruby).

Apple iMac G3/500 (Early 2001)

Apple iMac G3/500 (Early 2001 - Flower/Blue) The Apple iMac G3/500 (Early 2001 - Indigo/Flower Power/Blue Dalmation) features a 500 MHz PowerPC 750cx (G3) processor with a 256k on-chip level 2 cache, 64 MB of RAM, a 20.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a slot loading 8X/4X/24X CD-RW drive, ATI Rage 128 Ultra (AGP 2X) graphics with 16 MB of VRAM, a Harmon-Kardon designed sound system, and Firewire "400" ports packed into a translucent "indigo", "flower power", or "blue dalmation" (pictured) all-in-one case design with a 15-inch CRT display.

In addition to "funky" case design options -- which proved not to be particularly popular -- the iMac G3/500 (Early 2001 - Indigo/Flower Power/Blue Dalmation) and iMac G3/600 Special Edition (Early 2001) models brought substantial performance improvements to the iMac line, with faster PowerPC 750cx (G3) processors with on-chip level 2 caches, faster graphics with more VRAM (16 MB), and CD-RW drives.

Apple iMac G3/600 SE (Special Edition,Early 2001)

Apple iMac G3/600 SE (Early 2001) The Apple iMac G3/600 Special Edition (Early 2001) features a 600 MHz PowerPC 750cx (G3) processor with a 256k on-chip level 2 cache, 128 MB of RAM, a 40.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a slot loading 8X/4X/24X CD-RW drive, ATI Rage 128 Ultra (AGP 2X) graphics with 16 MB of VRAM, a Harmon-Kardon designed sound system, and Firewire "400" ports packed into a translucent "graphite", "flower power" (pictured), or "blue dalmation" all-in-one case design with a 15-inch CRT display.

In addition to "funky" case design options -- which proved not to be particularly popular -- the iMac G3/500 (Early 2001 - Indigo/Flower Power/Blue Dalmation) and iMac G3/600 Special Edition (Early 2001) models brought substantial performance improvements to the iMac line, with faster PowerPC 750cx (G3) processors with on-chip level 2 caches, faster graphics with more VRAM (16 MB), and CD-RW drives.

The iMac G3/600 Special Edition is similar to the iMac G3/500 (Early 2001 - Indigo/Flower Power/Blue Dalmation) model released at the same time, but the "Special Edition" has a faster processor and shipped with twice as much RAM (128 MB) and twice the hard drive storage (40 GB). Both of these "Early 2001" models were offered in "Flower Power" and "Blue Dalmatian", but only the 500 MHz model was available in "Indigo" and only the 600 MHz model was available in "Graphite".

[109] Apple iMac G3 Summer 2001

Apple iMac G3/500 (Summer 2001)

Apple iMac G3/500 (Summer 2001 - I/S) The Apple iMac G3/500 (Summer 2001 - Indigo/Snow) features a 500 MHz PowerPC 750cx (G3) processor with a 256k on-chip level 2 cache, 64 MB or 128 MB of RAM, a 20.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a slot loading 24X CD-ROM or 8X/4X/24X CD-RW drive, ATI Rage 128 Ultra (AGP 2X) graphics with 16 MB of VRAM, a Harmon-Kardon designed sound system, and Firewire "400" ports packed into a translucent "indigo" (pictured) or "snow" all-in-one case design with a 15-inch CRT display.

There were at least three configurations of the iMac G3/500 (Summer 2001 - Indigo/Snow) model released for the North American consumer market (with others released internationally and for education). As originally introduced on July 18, 2001, it was configured with 128 MB of RAM and a 8X/4X/24X CD-RW drive and sold for US$999. On October 1, 2001, a lower-end configuration was introduced -- offered only in indigo -- equipped with 64 MB of RAM and a 24X CD-ROM drive for US$799.

On January 7, 2002, corresponding with the introduction of the iMac G4/700 (Flat Panel), the original indigo and snow models were discontinued and the low-end model had its standard RAM boosted to 128 MB. It also began shipping with MacOS X 10.2 selected as the default operating system, although MacOS 9 also was pre-installed.

Please note that Apple decided to refer to this line as the "Summer 2001" series, which refers to Summer in the Northern Hemisphere.
