Since 2012, the new iMacs DON'T have IR port.
And it seams that the only way to control the new iMacs is
with an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and an appropriate App.
(much more expensive than the Apple Remote) !

This has not been mentioned in any of the answers.
The Mac Pro does NOT have an infrared port. This remote will NOT work with the Mac Pro unless you buy an external IR receiver.
It seems that all of the people who have submitted answers here have forgotten that Apple still makes a professional desktop tower.
