Apple quietly announced plans this week to begin selling an aluminum 20-inch iMac configuration to qualified educational institutions for $899, putting the final nail in the coffin of the white 17-inch legacy model that the new model replaces.

The previous white 17-inch iMac was an Apple holdover since 2006 to allow institutions hit hard by tax revenues declines to continue to factor Macs into their refined budgets, AppleInsider reports.

Buyers can begin pre-ordering the new aluminum systems today for delivery in about a month. Each $899 20-inch iMac includes a 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 1GB of memory, 160GB hard drive, 8x double-layer SuperDrive and a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics subsystem.

The update finally phases out completely the white iMac casing, introduced in 2004.
