Here is the iMac G4 with an M1 chip
Apple founder Steve Jobs returned to Apple for the second time in 1997 and has had many amazing products. Among them, the iMac G4 launched in early 2002 made many people fall for it. At the press conference at the time, Jobs once stated that its beauty and elegance will not decay in the next ten years. This all-in-one machine is basically equipped with a 15-inch screen, a G4 processor with a frequency of 700 MHz, NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX (32MB video memory) graphics card, 128MB memory, 40GB hard drive, and SuperDriver, configured with 5 USB ports, two Firewire ports, an Ethernet card port, and Wi-Fi module, etc.
With the passage of time, even the iMac G4 equipped with a 1.25GHz processor and a 20-inch widescreen is already obsolete. However, many enthusiastic fans have modified iMac G4 to keep the original appearance while improving the hardware specifications to reach the performance level of today’s computers. Today, although the modification is very difficult and costly, many people still enjoy it.
October 5th of this year is the tenth anniversary of the death of Steve Jobs. Twitter user @ColbySheets successfully modified an iMac G4 using the M1 chip. To be precise, this is using the internal components of the Mac mini and integrating them into the iMac G4. Due to its unique design and structure, the iMac G4 is an older Apple product that is more difficult to modify, compared to the Power Mac G4 Cube in the same period.
