Announced in October 1999, The iMac DV was a major jump forward in Apple's consumer strategy. Along with all the new features added to the iMac (Slot Loading), the DV also included a DVD-ROM drive, a larger hard drive, 2 FireWire ports (a consumer first), and a VGA out. The iMac DV was convection cooled, and as a result needed no internal fan, making it the quietest mac since the 512k.

The base model iMac DV came in 5 candy colors, with 64 MB of RAM, a 10GB ATA drive, for $1299. A "Special Edition" was also available in Graphite, with 128 MB of RAM, and a 13GB drive, for $1499.
