iMac DV Special Edition Mid 2000

The Apple iMac DV Special Edition Mid 2000 features a 500 MHz PowerPC 750 G3 processor, 512k backside level 2 cache, 128 MB of RAM, a 30.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a slot-loading 4X DVD-ROM drive, ATI Rage 128 Pro (AGP 2X) graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, a Harmon-Kardon designed sound system, and Firewire “400” ports packed into a translucent “graphite” or “snow” all-in-one case design with a 15-inch CRT display.

The iMac DV Special Edition Mid 2000 is similar to the iMac DV+ Mid 2000 released at the same time, but was offered in “graphite” and “snow” rather than “indigo”, “ruby”, and “sage”. The Special Edition model also shipped with a faster processor, twice the RAM, and a larger hard drive (30.0 GB instead of 20.0 GB).

The iMac DV Special Edition Mid 2000 also is rather similar to the iMac DV Special Edition with Slot Loading Drive that it replaced, but the “Mid 2000” DV Special Edition system is offered in “snow” (white) as well as graphite. The iMac DV Special Edition (Mid 2000) systems also shipped with a larger hard drive (30.0 GB instead of 13.0 GB) and a slightly better video processor with the same amount of VRAM (8 MB).

The “Mid 2000” models also replaced the oft panned Apple USB Keyboard and “hockey puck” Apple USB Mouse with the Apple Pro Keyboard and Mouse.
