Aluminum | 2.4GHz Intel | 20-inch
Aluminum is in, and white plastic is out. The iMac now sports an aluminum-clad case with matching aluminum keyboard. The glass of the “glossy” display is set flush and surrounded by a black bezel, giving a sleek and modern appearance. It’s too bad the included Mighty Mouse is still white plastic, as this diminishes the overall effect.
This is the middle model of the Mid 2007 aluminum series. It comes with a 320GB hard drive that could be upgraded to 500GB or 750GB. Unlike the base model that used the ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO, this model and the high-end 2.4GHz 24-inch model used the ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO.
This system came with built-in AirPort Extreme (802.11n), built-in Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and an IR receiver for connectivity right out of the box.
All models in this series came with a built-in iSight, speakers and microphone, Apple remote, mini-DVI port, one FireWire 400 and one FireWire 800 port, five USB 2.0 ports (counting the two on the keyboard), digital audio output/input and Gigabit Ethernet. The usual nice assortment of bundled Mac applications and utilities, plus iLife ’08 with iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, iWeb and GarageBand.

 iMac: From Internet + Mac
 The “i” in iMac originally stood for Internet but eventually developed into a marketing symbol for a wide range of Apple products.
 The “Al” or “AL” often seen appended to models in this series denotes the aluminum case.
