    Hi all.
    I want to know please which is the exact model of the iMAC's Intel CPU.
    About the 3.06. Is it the 8400?

    I would appreciate if someone could tell me.

    Thank you in advance.

    It is a custom CPU made especially for Apple by Intel. It is not available commercially AFAIK.

    No it isn't. The only "custom" CPU is the one in the Air and that's just a standard CPU on a custom package.

    iMacs use standard Intel laptops CPUs. The current 3.06Ghz iMac uses an Intel E8435 CPU (see everymac).

    Is this chip good? The last time I knew anything about PCU chips was back in the days of the Pentium when they just went in numerical order! (P1, P2, etc.)

    It's a custom made chip for apple. It's an overclocked penryn, to match the front bus speed of the new Montevina update.
