    I've just checked mine--- and mine is CPU Type: PowerPC G4 (1.5) but the CPU speed is still 1.33GHz

    :edit: Darn, I'm too slow.

    It's a countdown to the Intel machines, your 1.6GHz is 3, the new 2.0GHz are 2, that means there will be one more rev to the iMac before the Intel chips go in.
