iMac G5 / Intel Core

Power PC 970 |In August 2004, the iMac design was overhauled. The Apple iMac G5 was a desktop Macintosh computer designed and built using the PowerPC chip architecture. These early iMac G5 computers were the last line of iMacs that used a PowerPC CPU. These were also the last of the iMacs that could run Classic Apple Mac OS 9 applications.

Apple utilized the PowerPC 970 in the Macintosh G5 series. This chip produced more heat than previous CPUs and this required the need for multiple fans that were incorporated into the larger casing. The main logic board and optical drive were mounted directly behind the LCD panel and this gave the appearance of a thickened desktop LCD monitor. This new distinctive all-in-one design was availalable with 17 or 20 inch widescreen displays. The iMac G5 was updated in October 2005 with a thinner design, an iSight webcam mounted above the LCD. Apple's Front Row media interface became standard. This version had a slightly bowed back and lacked the VESA Flat Display Mounting Interface of the earlier G5 iMacs. The G5's all-in-one form factor was retained after Apple switched from PowerPC to Intel chips in 2006. The Intel Core Duo was introduced in January and then the Core 2 Duo in August, 2006.
