At a Glance

The iMac plunges below the $1,000 threshold with this model, whose specs bear a strong resemblance to the 1.83GHz iMac Core Duo that Apple sells to education institutions. The main difference: this iMac is powered by the next-generation of dual-core Intel chips, the Core 2 Duo. Otherwise, this 17-inch model has many of the same features, including integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics that share RAM with the main memory and no built-in support for Bluetooth. It's also worth noting that memory on this model tops out at 2GB, as opposed to 3GB on the other Core 2 Duo iMac configurations. Apple's remote is a build-to-order option for this iMac.
