Apple's iMac M6498 800MHz G4 has a 15-inch flat panel LCD display that's attached to the computer's half-sphere-shaped base with a flexible steel neck that you can easily adjust to change its angle and height. The PowerPC G4 processor allows you to quickly rip and burn CDs and make movies using the iMac's included iTunes and iMovie programs. It also allows you to play games and run a variety of applications for spreadsheets, databases, word processing and desktop publishing.


The iMac G4 comes with an 800MHz PowerPC G4 processor.


The iMac G4 comes with 128 megabytes of random access memory on, or RAM, which is expandable up to 1 gigabyte. The more RAM you install, the faster your computer will run, because applications load into the memory and run from there instead of from the hard drive.

Hard Drive

The iMac G4 comes with a 40GB or 60GB hard drive for storing applications and files.

Optical Drive

There are three options for an optical drive on the iMac G4: a CD-RW drive that writes CD-R discs at 24x speed, writes CD-RW discs at 10x speed and reads CDs at 32x speed; a DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo drive that reads DVDs at 6x speed, writes CD-R discs at 12x speed, writes CD-RW discs at 8x speed and reads CDs at 32x speed; and a SuperDrive, which writes DVD-R discs at 2x speed, reads DVDs at 6x speed, writes CD-R discs at 8x speed, writes CD-RW discs at 4x speed and reads CDs at 24x speed.


The iMac G4 has a built-in 15-inch LCD screen that displays millions of colours at 1024 by 768 pixel resolution, enabling you to see crisp, vivid images.


There are two FireWire ports and three USB ports on the iMac G4. They can be used to plug in peripheral devices such as an external hard drive, video camera, printer or scanner.


There is a built-in 56k modem that connects to a phone line for accessing the Internet. The computer also comes with a 10/100BASE-T Ethernet port that connects to a cable modem or DSL modem for high-speed Internet access. There is an antenna and a card slot to support an optional Wi-Fi card for wireless connectivity.
