Apple iMac G4/700 (Flat Panel)

Apple iMac G4/700 (Flat Panel) The Apple iMac G4/700 (Flat Panel) features a 700 MHz PowerPC 7441 (G4) processor with the AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing unit and a 256k on-chip level 2 cache, 128 MB or 256 MB of RAM (PC133 SDRAM), a 40.0 GB Ultra ATA/66 hard drive (5400 RPM), either a tray-loading CD-RW drive or DVD-ROM/CD-RW "Combo" Drive, and NVIDIA GeForce2 MX graphics with 32 MB of DDR SDRAM (AGP 2X support).

The internal components are housed in an attractive 10.6" half-sphere, ice white case with a chromed stainless steel neck that supports a 15" TFT Active Matrix LCD display. This model shipped with MacOS X 10.1 and MacOS 9.2 installed with MacOS X selected as the default, as well as an ice white Apple Pro Keyboard and Mouse. The "Combo Drive" configuration also shipped with external Apple Pro Speakers. Unlike some earlier iMac models that are convection-cooled, the iMac "Flat Panel" series is cooled by a quiet internal fan.

Apple iMac G4/1.0 15-Inch "FP" (USB 2.0) The Apple iMac G4/1.0 15-Inch (Flat Panel) features a 1.0 GHz PowerPC 7445 (G4) processor with the AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing unit and a 256k on-chip level 2 cache, 256 MB of RAM (333 MHz PC2700 DDR SDRAM), an 80.0 GB Ultra ATA/100 hard drive (7200 RPM), a tray-loading 32X "Combo" drive, NVIDIA GeForce4 MX graphics with 32 MB of DDR SDRAM (AGP 4X support), and support for AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth with optional cards.

The internal components are housed in an attractive 10.6" half-sphere, ice white case with a chromed stainless steel neck that supports a 15" TFT Active Matrix LCD display. This model shipped with MacOS X 10.2 "Jaguar" (and cannot boot into MacOS 9), as well as an ice white Apple Pro Keyboard, Mouse, and Speakers. Unlike some earlier iMac models that are convection-cooled, the iMac "Flat Panel" series is cooled by a quiet internal fan.
