The iMac Core 2 Duo 2.4 Aluminum with 20” screen is an Intel Mac iteration. This is the all-in-one desktop computer in a glass and aluminum one-piece casing behind the 20” screen, mounted on an aluminum stand with an adjusting hinge. The processor speed, VRAM and the hard disk capacities were increased, while the RAM remained the same. The “Core 2 Duo” 2.4 20” Aluminum features a 2.0 GHz Intel “Core 2 Duo” processor (T7700), with two independent processor “cores” on a single silicon chip, 1 GB of RAM, a 320 GB Serial ATA hard drive (7200 RPM), a slot-loading DVD+R DL “Super Drive”, ATI Radeon 2600 PRO graphics with 256 MB of GDDR SDRAM (PCI-Express), a built-in iSight webcam, a microphone and stereo speakers, as well as 1 Firewire “400”, 1 Firewire “800” and 3 USB 2.0 ports. It also has built-in draft and enabled 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 20” screen for the sound to bounce off the desk or other surface. The speakers’ grills also work as the vent ones. The iMac “Core 2 Duo” 2.0 Aluminum 20-inch is shipped with an ultra-thin aluminum Apple Keyboard and Mighty Mouse.

- A Bluetooth 2.0 keyboard and the (same old) wireless Apple Mighty Mouse are also compatible with this iMac, so you can go all wireless except for the power cord of course. But the optional wireless keyboard lacks a numeric keypad for the sake of more comfortable lap-typing.
