    Isn't that one of the education configurations?

    The education eMacs similar to that show up every now and then at the Special Deals section.

    I think if you go the store as a school, Apple offers a 17 inch iMac without an optical drive. Not sure about the modem port though.

    It is for a school with a network and a school that doesn't want students putting software on their Macs. :)

    The EDU iMacG5 also had a GeForce4MX instead of the FX5200...

    Yup. That iMac you've got there is an educational model. Some people bought the edu eMacs, then added a optical drive and overclocked 'em but that iMac is just an expensive 64-bit terminal. Anyone actually seen an edu-model iMac?

    That makes no sense. More like they just wanted to cut cost and do everything over the network for upgrades, etc.

    A 512 Meg or 1 Gig USB Flash could be used to *add* software :D

    ...so they can be restored over a network.
