Sources close to Think Secret have provided a look at the upcoming iMac G5 (previously rumored) in both 17" and 20" configurations. Pricing is expected to be in the $1300 - $2200 range, but higher prices haven't been ruled out. Starting with an education-aimed model lacking any optical drives presumably to replace the current eMac, the low end machine should sport: - Single 1.6 Ghz G5 Processor - 17" widescreen display - 40GB Ultra ATA hard drive - 256MB of DDR SDRAM - 512K L2 cache - NVIDIA GeForce4 MX graphics processor with 32MB of DDR video memory - VGA video output, S-video and composite video output - 10/100BASE-T Ethernet - two FireWire 400 ports - three USB 2.0 ports - two USB 1.1 ports on the keyboard. The first consumer-level iMac should have the following additions to the base education model: - Single 1.6 Ghz G5 Processor - 17" widescreen display - slot-loading Combo drive - 80GB Serial ATA hard drive - NVIDIA GeForce MX 5200 Ultra graphics processor with 64MB of DDR video memory - 56K internal modem As a step up, the high-end consumer-level iMac should be equipped with: - Single 1.8GHz G5 processor - 20" widescreen TFT display - slot-loading SuperDrive - 80GB Serial ATA hard drive - optional 160GB Serial ATA hard drive - NVIDIA GeForce MX 5200 Ultra graphics processor with 64MB of DDR video memory - 256MB of DDR SDRAM. - All other features will be the same as the 17-inch models.

Additionally, all models should have optical audio-out like the G5 Power Macs. The new models are expected to be introduced August 31st during the keynote address at Apple Expo Paris.
