No more white plastic for the iMac. The Mid 2007 series introduces aluminum into the iMac wardrobe. The matching aluminum keyboard and flush set glass display really give these models a modern appearance. The included Mighty Mouse is still clothed in white plastic, taking away a bit from the overall effect.
This is the high-end model of the Mid 2007 aluminum series. Like the mid-model, it comes with a 320GB hard drive that can be upgraded to 500GB or 750GB. But unlike the other models, it could also be configured with a whopping 1TB hard drive. Also like the mid-model, it included the ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO for a graphics controller.
There were two exclusive upgrades with this top model. It could be configured with a 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme processor and had an optional VESA mount adapter kit.
The Mid 2007 series all come 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. Software included the bundled applications and utilties and iLife ’08 with iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, iWeb and GarageBand.
Macs are always easy to connect and this model was no different. It came with built-in AirPort Extreme (802.11n), built-in Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and an IR receiver.

 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.
