The iMac G4 was given a number of internal upgrades over the two years it was on the market. Please make sure you know which model you have before buying upgrades, parts and installing operating systems. We have produced a handy system to help you identify your model, even if it does not work.
The iMac G4 features an beautiful white plastic case, which is strangely soft to the touch. Chrome details, such as the neck for adjusting the display, and the Apple logo's on the computer stand out dramatically. The screen came with either a glossy surround (17+20") or a matte finish (15"). Both had a clear perspex border around them, so that you can move the display with just a touch.
The bottom dome houses the main guts, and manages to pack an impressive amount of things in there. If you've ever opened one of these up, you'll understand!
