From any view, iMac is impressive. But little compares to sitting in front of the glossy widescreen display framed in amazingly slim anodised aluminium. iMac instantly turns your workspace from a cluttered desktop into a brilliant display podium.
Power on a pedestal.
iMac sets the standard for elegance and power. It packs a complete, high-performance computer into its all-in-one design. With an anodised aluminium frame and glass cover, it’s striking to behold. And these materials are highly recyclable, so iMac is friendlier to the environment. The 20- and 24-inch glossy widescreen displays make photos and movies come alive with rich colour. For an even better view, you can remove the stand and mount your 24-inch iMac on a wall with the VESA Mount Adapter Kit (sold separately) and see your photos and movies practically float on its big, beautiful screen. And with the stand removed, you save even more space on your desktop.
Nothing peripheral about it.
The ultrathin, sleek and compact Apple Keyboard perfectly complements iMac. Its anodised aluminium enclosure features low-profile keys with a crisp, responsive feel. The keyboard includes special function keys for one-touch control of Mac features, and two USB 2.0 ports provide high-speed connectivity to your iPod, Mighty Mouse, digital camera and other devices.
With iMac, details make all the difference. For example, because it’s made from a single sheet of aluminium, you won’t see any seams or screws except for a single compartment on the bottom that provides easy access to the memory slots. The built-in iSight camera and microphone are integrated so neatly you barely notice they’re there — until you need them for a video chat.
Beauty by the inch.
Photos, movies, games, videos and applications with palettes. Anything you see on the 20- or 24-inch glossy widescreen display will be a pixel-perfect experience. iMac features a flat-panel LCD screen with 1680-by-1050 resolution (20-inch) or 1920-by-1200 resolution (24-inch), giving you vivid colours and breathtaking high-definition clarity. And there’s nothing quite like seeing your life’s events on the big screen, thanks to the new iLife ’09 built into every iMac.
Greener than ever.
iMac is designed with the environment in mind. It’s created with highly recyclable glass and aluminium. It’s free of harmful toxins such as brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). iMac is so energy efficient, it meets ENERGY STAR 5.0 requirements and has earned the EPEAT Gold rating.
The latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors run at speeds starting at 2.66GHz with options up to 3.06GHz. And they include 6MB of shared L2 cache. Translation: iMac runs your applications faster and more efficiently than ever before.
Fast, faster or fastest?
Every new iMac includes high-performance NVIDIA graphics standard. Now games run smoother, photos load faster and pro applications have even more power. The 20-inch iMac with the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics processor delivers up to 2.3x faster graphics performance.1 The 24-inch iMac gives you even more graphics options. The NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics processor makes viewing web pages and searching through your iPhoto library smoother and more efficient. Or you can choose NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 discrete graphics to take 3D graphics up a notch. For 3D graphics-intensive games or pro applications like Aperture and Motion, the NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 and ATI Radeon HD 4850 processors deliver the fastest graphics performance yet.
More memory standard.
iMac now has up to 4GB of 1066MHz DDR3 memory standard so you can run more applications simultaneously. And with a Serial ATA hard drive up to 1TB,2 load up on photos, videos, music and more. That’s a remarkable amount of storage for just about anything and everything.
iMac ins and outs.
Bring on your iPod, digital camera, mobile phone and external hard drive. If it has a cable, iMac has a place for it. You’ll find four USB 2.0 ports on iMac itself and two on the Apple Keyboard. Connect faster peripherals to the FireWire 800 port for even more possibilities.
Turn your house into a Wi-Fi wonderland. High-speed 802.11n wireless technology is built into iMac. And with Time Capsule or the AirPort Express Base Station, every computer in every room can wirelessly connect to iMac, the Internet and each other.3 Over this network everyone can print, surf the web and even play music from the iTunes library through your home stereo — wirelessly.
iMac uses 802.11n wireless technology, allowing for higher speeds and greater range over the previous generation.
Built into the top of iMac is an iSight camera. You’ll hardly notice it’s there until you want to launch iChat, Photo Booth or iMovie. iSight is easy to use and highly advanced. The remarkable picture quality and colour accuracy make this tiny feature huge.
iMac doesn’t have a disc tray. CDs and DVDs slide right into the slot-loading SuperDrive. What makes it super? You can burn your own CDs and DVDs — including double-layer DVDs — to back up data or create your own music mixes. With the SuperDrive and iDVD, you can even burn the movies you make onto a DVD and watch them on your TV.
