Cool, so the answer is 'probably'. I'd be interested to know if anyone who has one can verify.

At least mine doesn't:

Code:
imac:~ MPE$ sudo ifconfig en0 mtu 9000
ifconfig: ioctl (set mtu): Invalid argument

Yes, the 27" does.

Weird. My 27" 3.1GHz iMac that was delivered yesterday supports jumbo frames fine. I was quite concerned that it wouldn't because I rely on them for good performance with my NAS

I set it using System Preferences -> Ethernet -> Advanced -> Ethernet -> Configure Manually.

I've confirmed the setting by checking the output of ifconfig. It shows an mtu value of 9000.
