Giving an iMac 2006 17" for free. I acquired it from another member hoping to fix it, but ended up just sitting here.

Core 2 Duo 2.0ghz
4gb DDR2 ram
1tb 7200rpm Hdd.

Everything works except the monitor. It has the so common vertical lines showing.
I was hoping to fix it with a 17" full HD lcd display, but ended not to. I unplugged it so it won't turn on and plugged a 20" Dell monitor via a miniDVI to DVI cable instead. I will include the cable and reconnect the monitor if you wish.

Will ship at "taker's" expense.

Great machine (other then the screen issue). Had my 2006 for years before I was given an 07 (which I need parts for I fear). Anyone would be happy with it.

Someone in GTA wants it. I'm getting ready a shipping quote.

I will let you know how that turns out.

I have a 17" G5 iMac with a bad logic board. Anyone knows if I could install the 17" LCD in a iMac Intel 17" case ?

I believe the LCD are different in the G5. 4:3 vs 16:10.

And btw, I have a taker for this already. We will be meeting in Mississauga next month.

Is this machine still available? I'd welcome it in my growing Mac Lab!

If it falls through, then we will see.

I would happily take it but I really have no use for it. I will be traveling this week however in the wrong direction. If jezzy is free then he can jump the line. Next time I'm around Montréal, if you still have it then I'll come get it.

Thanks Dr Al! Something new to tinker with and give to the kids to play with.. Their old single core mini is horribly slow..
