Thanks for the pics. Can anyone see any major differences between this and the rev A? I'm not quite observant enough to pick up on anything. :(

Well, you can see the different graphics cards (I think that's what it is - near the top and kind of in the middle) and I'm pretty sure the RAM is laid out slightly differently but that might just be me.

Well, I asked this numerous times already but can you confirm if the screen spanning hack works on this revision?
could you fill me in with more details about that "screen spanning hack"? :)

hi katie,

that set is Air Table and Air Chair by Jasper Morrison, my top pick with my very limited budget :p

now that my iMac G5 is here, implying my planned dive trips in South East Asia this year could only be dreams next year.....

enjoy your Vienna or iMac! :p

The fan ducting on the revB looks totally different. Unless you just cant see it in the 17" revA.

The fans exhaust on the right of the picture is different then the rev A's. Also, it appears that the ram is angled the other way. i'll go back and check each now and see if anything else is different.

Looking at the two side by side, there is a lot different. The two fans have different shaped vents, the airport card slot is moved. Seems like everything is shifted down, but that could be because the original is a 17'' and the new one is a 20".

Don't compare 17" with 20" they are pretty different on the inside. The RevA 17" is almost identical on the inside at the RevB 17" and the same applies with the 20" models. I have a RevA 20" and I can say that it looks nearly the same as the RevB 20", except mine doesn't have a built in airport card, it has a slot for one. Fan, ducts, heatsink, everything looks similar to the old stuff. The fan looks a bit different, and the positioning of capacitors and such is a little different.

found a pic of old 20" iMac here



compare with Rev.B


NEW: sorry for the mistake, this should be the correct old 20", am quite certain this time coz the RAM modules of 17" are flipping inward while those of 20" flip outward
