iMac Mid 2000

The Apple iMac Mid 2000 features a 350 MHz PowerPC 750 G3 processor, 512k backside level 2 cache, 64 MB of RAM, a 7.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a slot-loading 24X CD-ROM drive, ATI Rage 128 Pro (AGP 2X) graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, and a Harmon-Kardon designed sound system packed into a translucent “indigo” all-in-one case design with a 15-inch CRT display.

The iMac Mid 2000 is rather similar to the iMac with Slot Loading Drive (Blueberry, No Firewire) that it replaced, but the “indigo” model uses an “indigo” case instead of “blueberry” and lacks internal support for AirPort (802.11b) as well as Firewire “400”.

However, the iMac Mid 2000 model did ship with a slightly larger hard drive (7.0 GB compared to 6.0 GB), a slightly better video processor with the same amount of VRAM (8 MB), and replaced the oft panned Apple USB Keyboard and “hockey puck” Apple USB Mouse with the Apple Pro Keyboard and Mouse. It also sold for US$200 less (US$799 instead of US$999).
