Part of the iMac overhaul that added next-generation Core 2 Duo processors to the product line, this 17-inch configuration features a faster 2GHz chip than the 1.83GHz model; it also has more L2 cache as well as dedicated graphics. Instead of the Combo Drive you'll find in the 1.83GHz iMac, this 17-inch model comes with a DVD-burning SuperDrive. It also features built-in Bluetooth wireless networking capabilities in addition to the standard AirPort Extreme card. Finally, this model ships with 1GB of RAM installed; you can put as much as 3GB of memory in the system.
