The iMac Core 2 Duo 1.83 IG with 17” screen is almost identical to the iMac “Core Duo” / 1.83 (IG) in everything except a newer and faster processor, a larger hard drive and graphics.

This iMacs line-up is known as Intel Macs. The iMac “Core 2 Duo” / 1.83 17-Inch (IG) is the all-in-one desktop computer in a polycarbonate casing behind the 17” screen, mounted on an aluminum stand with an adjusting hinge. The “Core 2 Duo” 1.83 17-inch features a 1.83 GHz Intel “Core 2 Duo” processor (T7200), with two independent processor “cores” on a single silicon chip, 512 MB of RAM, an 80 GB Serial ATA hard drive (7200 RPM), a slot-loading DVD-ROM/CD-RW “Combo” drive, an Intel GMA950 graphics processor with 64 MB of DDR2 SDRAM shared with main memory, a built-in iSight webcam, a microphone and stereo speakers, as well as 2 Firewire “400” and 3 USB 2.0 ports. It also has built-in AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, Gigabit Ethernet and mini-DVI capable of supporting a second display. The cooling system is CPU controlled and the in-built speakers are mounted beneath the 17” screen for the sound to bounce off the desk or other surface.
