iMac G3 Slot-Loading DV 400 Hz 2001

The iMac Slot-Loading G3 DV 400 Hz released in February 2001 was just a reincarnation of iMac G3 DV 400 Hz 2000 in Indigo and Ruby. It has got a 400 Hz processor, a VGA-port, a larger 10 GB hard drive, and two FireWire 400 ports. A DVD-ROM was replaced by a CD-ROM and the price was $100 lower than that of the previous model. The preinstalled OS is also younger. It is available only in one color – Indigo. This iMac also sports the fanless cooling system that makes its operation almost silent. It got the same model number but different Apple Order identificator.
