Apple iMac G5

Announced in August 2004, the iMac G5 brought the G5 processor to Apples consumer level ("i" series) machines.

A radical redesign centered around a 17" or 20" TFT on a perfectly formed arm. The TFT casing contains the workings of the iMac, which can be accessed by removing the back of the unit.

This iMac is the only Apple to use the G5 processor, apart from the PowerMac G5, although the clock speed is kept down due to this CPU's large thermal output.

The unit has a slot loading Combo or SuperDrive located on the top right of the unit.

The revisions released in late 2005 also include a built-in iSight camera.

The ports and connectors are all hidden stylishly round the back. In short, another wonderful design from the team lead by Jonathan Ives at Apple's design center.
