Used iMac (Core 2 Duo) for Language Teachers only.
NOTE: We cannot process bursar purchases for this item. Please choose the credit card option during checkout. Limit of two (2) machines per teacher.
These computers were purchased in 2008 and have been the workhorses of the computer lab at the LRC. The iMacs are sold "as-is." They are fully functioning upon purchase, but once they leave the building, we can offer very little support. That said, they have functional Wifi, and can be great for web browsing, watching movies, etc. Each machine comes with a clean install of OS X Snow Leopard (we don't recommend anything beyond 10.8) and Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac.
Full description of the units below:
The iMac "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 20-Inch (Aluminum) features a 2.0 GHz Intel "Core 2 Duo" processor (T7300), with two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip, a 4 MB shared level 2 cache, an 800 MHz system bus, 1 GB of RAM (667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, PC2-5300), a 250 GB (7200 RPM) Serial ATA hard drive, a vertically-mounted slot-loading DVD+R DL "SuperDrive", ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT graphics acceleration with 128 MB of GDDR3 memory, a built-in iSight video camera, and built-in stereo speakers underneath the 20" glossy TFT Active Matrix LCD (1680x1050 native) display designed to "bounce sound off the desk below".
Connectivity includes three USB 2.0 ports, a Firewire "400" port and a Firewire "800" port, built-in AirPort Extreme, and Gigabit Ethernet, as well as mini-DVI, which supports an external display in "extended desktop" mode.
Externally, the "Aluminum" iMac "Core 2 Duo" models feature "elegant" aluminum cases and have a glass cover that "joins precisely to the aluminum enclosure creating a virtually seamless front surface" -- compared to white plastic cases used by the models these replaced. Additionally, the "Aluminum" systems were paired with a "new ultra-thin aluminum" Apple Keyboard (0.33 inches at the front edge) based on the polarizing keyboard design introduced with the MacBook.
Internally, some "Aluminum Core 2 Duo" models have faster processors than their predecessors, but all have a faster "Santa Rosa" motherboard design with an 800 MHz frontside bus (up from 667 MHz), additional RAM capacity, and both a Firewire "400" port and Firewire "800" port.
