    No, unfortunately, the 20" iMac uses a different panel.

    The iMac display has a typical brightness of 230 cd/m and a contrast ratio of 350:1
    The 20" Cinema display has a typical brightness of 250 cd/m and a contrast ratio of 400:1

    Viewing angle and resolution are identical, though.
