iMac Intel - Upgrade & Repair
The iMac with Intel CPU is a hugely successful range of desktop all-in-one computers from Apple. First released in 2006, when Apple switched from PowerPC to Intel CPUs, the first couple of revisions were in the same white casing as the previous iMac G5, but in 2007 the line switched to the silver colouring that it would keep throughout the entire range. The line updated again in late 2009, with 21.5" and 27" screen size options replacing 20" and 24". Then a major redesign was made in 2012 with a new, much thinner, case and the removal of the internal DVD drive.
Almost all these machines can have their RAM and drives upgraded (there are a couple of exceptions towards the end of the range), though the process to do so has became progressively more involved with each redesign. We offer RAM and drive upgrades for all models that take them, and offer installation services across the entire range.
We have been repairing the Intel iMacs since they were first released, and have a great deal of experience and access to parts.
iMac 2012 - 2020
In 2012 the iMac was redesigned into a much thinner case, and the internal DVD drive was removed. Any iMac with an Intel CPU and no internal DVD drive is part of this range. Screen size will be either 21.5" or 27".
iMac Late 2009 - 2011
The iMac was updated in Late 2009, with the screen size options changed to 21.5" and 27". Any iMac with an internal DVD drive and a screen of these sizes is in this category.
iMac 2007 - Mid 2009
In 2007 the iMac was redesigned into a new Aluminium case. 20" and 24" screen options were available - any iMac with these screen sizes in a silver case is in this category.
iMac Intel White
The first iMac with an Intel CPU looks very similar to the previous iMac G5 iSight model. The 24" display option was new to the Intel range, but the easiest way to distinguish between 17" and 20" models is to open System Profiler and check the CPU type.
