The Apple iMac G3/400 DV (Summer 2000 - Indigo/Ruby) features a 400 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor, 512k backside level 2 cache, 64 MB of RAM, a 10.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a slot loading 24X CD-ROM drive, ATI Rage 128 Pro (AGP 2X) graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, a Harmon-Kardon designed sound system, and Firewire "400" ports packed into a translucent "indigo" or "ruby" (pictured) all-in-one case design with a 15-inch CRT display.
The iMac G3/400 DV (Summer 2000 - Indigo/Ruby) is rather similar to the iMac G3/400 DV (Slot Loading - Fruit Colors) that it replaced, but the "Summer 2000" systems use either an "indigo" or "ruby" case instead of one of five "fruit colors" -- lime (lime green), strawberry (pinkish-red), blueberry (royal blue), grape (purple), or tangerine (orange-yellow).
However, the iMac G3/400 DV (Summer 2000 - Indigo/Ruby) systems shipped with a CD-ROM drive instead of a DVD-ROM drive and a slightly better video processor with the same amount of VRAM (8 MB). It also replaced the oft panned Apple USB Keyboard and "hockey puck" Apple USB Mouse with the Apple Pro Keyboard and Mouse, but sold for US$300 less (US$999 instead of US$1299).
Please note that Apple decided to refer to this line as the "Summer 2000" series, which refers to Summer in the Northern Hemisphere.
