Naked iMac II spied on Web

German Mac site publishes the photos

Confirmation has come via German Mac-oriented Web site MacNews of the specifications for the upcoming three versions of the new iMac -- the so-called 'C2 Revision' -- that we reported yesterday. According to MacNews, the line is topped by "special edition" 400MHz PowerPC 750 (aka G3) model iMac DV (Digital Video) model, which will ship with the same colour scheme as the professional-oriented Power Mac G4. The emphasis on the consumer video market is highlighted by the machine's two FireWire (aka IEEE1394) ports, 13GB hard disk and 128MB RAM. The machine will also ship with a pared-down version of Apple's Final Cut video editing application. The machine will also feature a slot for Apple's AirPort wireless network-enabling card, 10/100 Ethernet, 56kbps modem and twin USB ports. There's a new sound system developed by hi-fi specialist Harman Kardon. The main iMac line will ship in the now standard five colours, and be specced out much like the special edition model with the exception that they will ship with 10GB hard disk space and 64MB RAM. They too will ship with Final Cut Lite (or whatever it's finally called) and two FireWire ports. At the bottom of the line comes a 350MHz machine with 64MB RAM, a 6GB hard drive but no FireWire ports. Other specs. match those of the other models. The budget model will ship in blue only. ® MacNews' iMac pictures can be seen here
