I'm selling my 24-inch white iMac 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo that I custom ordered with nVidia 7600GT graphics. The iMac shipped with 2GB RAM and a 250GB hard drive, but I upgraded it to 3GB RAM and installed a 500GB server-class hard drive. I have the original box and all accessories. Unlike the glossy screen of the aluminum iMacs, this one has a matte display.

UPDATE: I forgot to mention that the iMac is covered under AppleCare until October 2009.

Specs:
Processor - 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory - 3GB PC2-5300
Hard Drive - 500GB server-class, 7200rpm, 16MB cache (Western Digital Caviar RE2 WD50000YS)
Optical Drive - 8x SuperDrive with DL burn capability
Graphics - nVidia GeForce 7600GT with 256MB GDDR3 SDRAM
USB - 3 ports
Firewire - 1 FW800, 1 FW400
Networking - Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11n, Bluetooth
Apple Wireless Keyboard and Mouse

I'm asking $1500 obo + shipping. Before I get criticized for my asking price, consider this:

Sure, you can pick up a refurb 24" iMac for the same price or even less, but the 7600GT is faster even than the Radeon 2600 Pro that ships in the current iMacs. The only way to get an iMac with faster video than the 7600GT is to custom order an iMac for over $2000 with the 8800GS.

Take a look at these benchmarks:
iMac Aluminum versus Others -3D Games under WinXP
Aluminum iMac - Update 1.0 vs 1.1 - 3D Graphics

Also, this iMac is perfect for a gamer who wants a matte screen, since all the aluminum iMacs are glossy.

I accept PayPal or check/money order. If PayPal is used, I will only ship to a confirmed address. Feel free to ask any questions.

Do you have a link? An iPod touch 16GB is worth $400. I highly doubt that someone would be selling a loaded 24" iMac with a $400 iPod for less than what I'm asking.
