Vintage Macintosh: iMac PowerMac G4 800Mhz 2002



The Apple iMac G4/800 17-Inch (Flat Panel) “Snowball” came to market in July 2002. The internal components were housed in a 10.6-inch half sphere white case with a chrome stainless steal need that supported either a 15” or 17”. This version replaced the iMac G3 and built upon the design of the G4 Cube. Unlike earlier iMac models that were convection-cooled the iMac “Snowball” series was cooled by a quiet internal fan. This model features an 800 MHz PowerPC (G4), 256 MB of RAM (PC133 SDRAM), an 80.0 GB Ultra ATA/66 hard drive (5400 RPM), a tray-loading “SuperDrive”, and NVIDIA GeForce4 MX graphics with 32 MB of DDR SDRAM (AGP 2X support). The iMac G4 was replaced by the iMac G5 on August 31, 2004.
