Remarkable thing happened today a customer turned up with two 24" iMacs. Their main machine was a late 2008 model and the backlight on the Display had failed. Along with that they also brought along a mid 2007 model that was working perfectly. The customer asked if I could change the Displays over so they could continue using their late 2008 model.
This is where the good news begins. It was a straight swap
. Telephoned my customer two hours later to tell them I had successfully switched the displays over and they came to my workshop to collect.
This now meant the mid 2007 24" iMac no longer had a functioning Display otherwise working perfectly I was told I could KEEP IT http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/i ... specs.html

I couldn't believe my luck. Had a bit of spare time on my hands this afternoon so I hooked it up to a 22" BENQ External Display placed a 250GB 7200RPM Hard Drive in it and installed OS X Snow Leopard. It literally flies on 4GB DDR2 RAM.MAJOR RESULT
OH and the built in speakers sound AMAZING
