The FastMac upgrade takes full advantage of the G4 AltiVec Velocity Engine, allowing the iMac to now run programs it could not run before, including GarageBand, iChat AV with iSight, and others. The upgrade is 100% compatible with Mac OS 9/X. The $200 upgrade carries a 1-year warranty. It is compatible with the iMac G3 (350MHz, 400MHz, and 450MHz models), and most models of the 500MHz iMac G3.
