The entry-level iMacs of 2009 sports Nvidia Geforce Graphics, while top models – ATI Radeon. The FireWire “400” port was dropped for an extra USB port thus making four of them in total and the Mini-DVI was swapped for Mini DisplayPort. The processor remained the same. The iMac (20-inch, 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Early 2009) features a 2.66 GHz Intel “Core 2 Duo” processor (E8135), with two independent processor “cores” on a single silicon chip, 2 GB of RAM, a 320 GB Serial ATA hard drive (7200 RPM), a slot-loading DVD+R DL “Super Drive”, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics with 256 MB of memory shared with the system, a built-in iSight webcam and stereo speakers, as well as a Firewire “800” and 4 USB 2.0 ports. It also has built-in draft and enabled AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Gigabit Ethernet and Mini DisplayPort capable of supporting a second display. The cooling system is CPU controlled and the in-built speakers are mounted beneath the 20 inches screen for the sound to bounce off the desk or other surface. The speakers’ grills also work as the vent ones. The iMac (20-inch, 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Early 2009) is shipped with a smaller Apple Keyboard short of the numerical keypad and Mighty Mouse.
