      Good- but had it's day!

      When you see an Apple product- you immediately have high hopes for it- but i may warn this is one of the earlier apple products realised ! Compared to other I-mac's - you will probably be disappointed by this- but in terms of it price now- and given it was top of the range in it's day- i think it's okay value for money.

      You get 5 colours lime ,strawberry pink ,blue dark purple, and a yellow/orange colour.

      It has the option for you to slow in DVD and CD player but sometimes i have problems with this being small it can get jammed quite easily.

      You could still use this for basic surfing as the graphics are okay.

      The Apple iMac DV Blueberry specification for those interested:

      atures a 400 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor, 512k backside level 2 cache, 64 MB of RAM, a 10.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a slot loading 4X DVD-ROM drive, ATI Rage 128 VR 2D/3D (AGP 2X) graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, and a Harmon-Kardon designed sound system packed into a translucent colorful all-in-one case design with a 15-inch CRT display.

      An upgrade is available but i think that you might aswlel pay for a more recent product than do this for the sake of your money.

      I think if your looking for a basic model- something that looks good and you can use for basic/home use then i would recommend this product but there are far superior in the market!

      Cute, friendly user friendly computer but does the bare minimum

      So this was officially my first piece of tech and I've never looked back from the beloved Apple brand. It is however rather old now, dated and doesn't do much in terms of what the last few iMacs have offered. It was hover at the top of its game when it came out. The best thing about this piece is the way it looks and its clear perspex outer shell.

      It was made in the same five colors; lime (lime green), strawberry (pinkish-red), blueberry (royal blue), grape (purple), and tangerine (orange-yellow) as the earlier "Fruit Colors" iMac models, but can be quickly distinguished by the slot loading optical drive, as well as the dual Firewire 400 ports.

      It has a slot loading dvd/cd player which is attractive enough but there isn't a way to release the disk if it gets jammed so you're in a bit of a pickle.

      You could still use this for basic surfing as the graphics are okay.

      The Apple iMac DV Blueberry, based on the Kihei architecture, features a 400 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor, 512k backside level 2 cache, 64 MB of RAM, a 10.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a slot loading 4X DVD-ROM drive, ATI Rage 128 VR 2D/3D (AGP 2X) graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, and a Harmon-Kardon designed sound system packed into a translucent colorful all-in-one case design with a 15-inch CRT display. You can upgrade the storage but I doubt it would be worth it for what you'd be using it for.

      Overall this is a cute, fun machine that if you've still got lying around is perfect for the kids to have a little surf on the internet or practice writing. Anything else and you'll need to upgrade models.

      It Better and Ok!

      The i Mac is the best selling computer all times and visually beautiful in its design. The transparent housing serves mainly the beautiful light refraction, He does a good job with 400 MHz not the fastest, but perhaps the most durable computer. He is now indeed already a few years old, but still good about it. The Slotln drive at the front has no dropouts. Sorry, but there is no burner is available. The development of the second-hand market is ok, you can still get good collectors and enthusiasts prices. It is also worthwhile to sell this computer to be defective, because even then, there is still much in demand. The i Mac is actually as internet access to retrieve mail or surf. Games can only play limited there to since the graphics card now obsolete and is too old. Smaller games and flash animations but are not a problem.This all-in-one agreed design and ease of use in one and I can only recommend this Mac. Anyone who uses graphical applications, which I can advise, because that this Mac is just too old for children and beginners with OS9 or OSX this device, however, is great. And he was good enough for surfing.
      The services has 2 speakers, 2 USB 1.O ports and Fire ware, unfortunately only 10 GB of hard drive space and performance of this one is very good and design is very stylish, it also with many features, it fastest and easiest way on the internet. The price is also low.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      An average computer that's only suitable for the most basic of tasks now.

      When this computer came out it was top of its class and very impressive. Now however it struggles to do most things apart from look amazing.
      It runs on the old Power PC architecture and has a 400MHz processor, however, from a new install it is still quite swift at editing video with the supplied software. The 10gb hard drive is no where near sufficient for any serious video editing that you'd like to do. However it is upgradeable quite easily to something larger, say a 120gb one.

      It has a slot loading dvd/cd player which looks quite cool but you're a bit stuck if a cd gets jammed or stuck inside, as there is no manual release like on tray loaders.

      The graphics are acceptable for something this old but don't expect to play any recent, nay ANY games on this thing.

      It performs office tasks mediocrely with a bit of grunting and noise from inside, and it freezes if you do to many things at once (e.g. work on a spreadsheet and a presentation at the same time) due to its 64mb of RAM.

      Overall, if you're looking for a computer that's cheap and you can write the occasional letter on, this can be it, just don't expect to do much else on it.
