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."

Here it is.

However, you need to unpeel and re-apply some necessary thermal paste to replace it, only if you're up to it.

The first couple of times I read the question I was also thinking iBook, and you are correct that they do not have PRAM batteries. However, by my third or fourth reading, I realized he is asking about iMacs. Thanks for the info!
