    iMac Intel Core Duo
    Dual Core 1.83 (17") or 2.0 GHz (20") Intel
    RAM: DDR-2 667 MHz SODIMMs, 2 sockets, max. 2 Gb
    - Stock configurations ship with a single 512 or 1 Gb SODIMM, leaving one empty socket (good)
    - PC5300 667 MHz DDR-2 RAM is not exchangeable with any prior Mac RAM
    - Uses laptop SODIMMs, not DIMMs like last model
    - No mention of Dual-channel or 128 bit memory access (which is not surprising, with laptop RAM).
    DL Superdrive standard
    Airport Extreme and Bluetooth standard
    External display supports both spanning and mirroring, up to 1920 x 1200, (higher with analog VGA) does not support 30" dual-link DVI monitors - has a Mini-DVI port (requires adaptor)
    International power supply 100V - 240V.
    667 MHz system buss
    Analog audio input only, analog and optical digital audio output.

    No Firewire 800
    No Modem -- USB modem optional
    Can't go to 2.5 Gb RAM like previous G5 model
    Cannot run Classic (OS9) applications
    Hard drive and monitors seem to remain the same as prior model.

    Notes: Previous iMac G5 models are still on sale, have not dropped in price.

    the only Apple product I own is an iPod. I'm so fed up with PCs that I'm about to buy my first mac, and I'm excited about the new iMac announcement. so sorry if this is a dumb question,

    but about upgrading RAM, will the stock 1gb have CL of 4 or 5? I want to buy RAM from Crucial or NewEgg to bump the new system to 2gb but I don't want to buy the wrong kind.

    Do people out there have major doubts about buying this iMac's revA? or is it more of just an upgrade of RevC?

    thx for any info you can give a newbie.

    Mini-DVI now. :D

    Now I just need to wait for Rev. B and more games to be released for Intel or get universal binary patches. I like the power but my software needs to catch up. :(

    Crucial have the memory listed already. Just buy in confidence from them - they offer full mac compatability guarantee...
