    Late 2005 models vary as they have dual Gigabit Ethernet ports.

    Externally from the front they are identical, IIRC. Some models may have been modded by users though....some have their CD/DVD drives removed or upgraded, etc. The internal components can vary greatly, so the rear ports can be quite different between the different models. The below pics are from a post by Weckart in another thread, but they illustrate the differences perfectly.
