Apple iMac: Picture 1 regular

About Apple iMac

The 27-inch iMac Desktop Computer MC814LL/A from Apple is a sleek All-in-One computer with a stunning 16:9 HD display. When all you see is the display, nothing gets between you and what's onscreen. The more pixels a display has, the more light those pixels need to achieve the best picture possible. And that's exactly what the LED backlighting in iMac does: It pushes light through each pixel with remarkable brightness and efficiency. Because the LED backlight doesn't take up much space, the iMac enclosure stays thin - even with all the high-performance components inside. The 27-inch iMac features 2560-by-1440 HD resolution. It was a great idea then and it's a great idea now.

The All-in-One design of the first flat-panel iMac cleaned up the desktop. It put everything you need - display, processor, graphics card, hard drive, optical drive, memory and more - inside one simple enclosure. Today, iMac is the gold standard for an All-in-One desktop computer.

While you'll find a collection of ports on the back of iMac, you won't find much else. A seamless, precision-forged enclosure makes the back one continuous aluminum surface. And there's only one cord: the power cord.

The widescreen iMac display allows more room to separate the two hottest components, the CPU and the GPU. This keeps things cool inside the iMac enclosure. Apple engineers also implemented an intelligent control system that monitors temperatures and delivers just the right amount of airflow to critical components. And the three fans inside iMac have been tuned to be ultraquiet, so you hardly know it's on.

iMac comes with a wireless keyboard and either a Magic Mouse or a Magic Trackpad - your choice. With Magic Mouse, you get a mouse unlike any other. Its smooth, seamless design lets you control everything with simple gestures. But if you're all gestures all the time, then opt for Magic Trackpad. Its touch-friendly all-glass surface gives you plenty of room to scroll, swipe, pinch and rotate to your fingers' content.

Apple iMac Features

  • LED backlighting. One bright idea: Full brightness with no waiting. That's the advantage of the LED-backlit iMac display. Unlike displays that take time to warm up before they reach maximum brightness, an LED-backlit display is instantly on and uniformly bright
  • More pixels. Better picture: The 27-inch iMac features 2560-by-1440 resolution. A 1000:1 contrast ratio gives you more vibrant colors and blacker blacks. All in a 16:9 aspect ratio - the same as an HDTV
  • Stunning from every angle: The iMac display looks great from any seat in the house, thanks to a premium display technology called in-plane switching (IPS). IPS gives you a bright picture with excellent color - even if you're viewing the display from the side
  • Next-generation quad-core Intel processors: Powered by quad-core processors, the new iMac is the fastest yet - up to 70 percent faster than the previous generation. Every model in the lineup comes standard with the latest Intel Core i5 quad-core processor
  • All-new advanced AMD Radeon HD graphics: With advanced AMD Radeon HD graphics processors across the line, iMac performs even better than before - up to three times better, in fact. So you see more frames per second in 3D games and you can edit HD home videos with more speed
  • Thunderbolt: Ultrafast & ultraflexible, the Thunderbolt port features 2 10-Gbps data channels for data transfer that's up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800 & up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0.

  • Turbo Boost 2.0: Turbo Boost 2.0 automatically increases the speed of the active cores - up to 3.8GHz. And by shifting core frequency in small increments, Turbo Boost allows the processor to manage performance without sacrificing efficiency
  • Faster single-chip micro architecture: Watching a movie, updating your blog, editing photos. Tasks like these require data to travel from place to place. The latest Intel Core architecture puts the processor, cache, memory controller and graphics engine on a single chip
  • Integrated memory controller: With faster access to memory, each core gets right to work on your data, rather than waiting for it to arrive. That's why Intel Core architecture uses an integrated memory controller to connect fast 1333MHz memory directly to the processor
