Originally known as "The New iMac" the iMac G4 was created to replace the iMac G3 as Apple's all-in-one desktop computer. The G4 is easily recognizable by its swiveling monitor mounted above the hemispherical computer. Steve Jobs quoted it as being "a design that will last till the next decade."

Any known recent repair guides for iMac G4 1.25ghz 17"?

Hello All,

I am just about to do a RAM and Hard Drive upgrade on my iMac G4 1.25ghz 17" and am wondering if anyone has information on available repair guides. I see that an iFixit guide for that model is still in progress (fantastic!). the only guide that I could find is this one:

Also, as I do the upgrade, I'd be happy to supply information and photos to iFixit, if that would be a help.

Thanks,

Randy

That's an excellent guide. I did a quick check of ifixit's guides page and it appears you have a clear field to create a guide for this machine. Check the how to page and good luck. + for the attempt.

Thanks for the link on the "how to write a repair guide" information. I'll get set up for the photos and begin the work sometime early this week. I would like to go for writing the guide, using the accepted format. Looking forward to it.

I finished my first guide for this machine tonight. Would someone mind taking a look at it and give me a critique? I have others to follow.

My guide has at least one inadvertent photographic omission that I've noticed, but I think the text is clear enough to do without it. I'd love your feedback. Especially since this is my first attempt.

I've got the official technical repair guide "iMac_flatpanel_usb_2.0" for this device as a .pdf file.

I can send it to you (5.3 Mb) if you provide me with your email address.
