The iMac G5 offers all-in-one elegance that's delightfully affordable. Take in the view on a widescreen flat-panel display. Proudly display the iMac G5 in any room of your house it's lightweight enough to move from your kitchen to the den or bedroom.

The 20-inch model shows more than two full pages of text and graphics side by side while the dazzling 17-inch provides the same screen area as a 19-inch CRT with twice the brightness, sharpness and contrast. Hidden behind the display, you'll find the entire computer: central processing unit (CPU), logic board, hard drive, optical drive, speakers, microphone and power supply. But you'll actually find that the computer just fades away as you organize music and photos, or compose tunes and edit movies with the iLife suite of integrated applications for your digital lifestyle. What's more, since the iMac is wireless-ready, you don't even have to place it near a phone jack. Simply pop in an AirPort Extreme Card, hook up an AirPort Express to your DSL connection or cable modem, and you can surf the Internet wirelessly, listen to tunes in another room and print wirelessly.
