Teardown: Apple's Intel-Based iMac

Apple Computer Inc.'s first desktop PC to be based on an Intel Corp.-manufactured microprocessor carries a bill of materials (BOM) cost of $873, according to a teardown by El Segundo, Calif.-based iSuppli Corp.

The new Apple iMac desktop PC, introduced by Apple head Steve Jobs at last week's MacWorld Expo, is based on Intel's Core Duo microprocessor, marking a major departure for Apple, which has never used an Intel-made microprocessor in its PCs, instead opting to employ PowerPC chips made by IBM and Freescale Inc. over the past decade.
