That said, the iMac looks so good, functions so easily and performs so well that recycling it is likely to be the least of your concerns! Using it to get the best out of your projects will be higher on your agenda and, thanks to iMacs incredible technologies, will be exactly what you achieve.
Apple iMac main features
Displays like nothing you’ve ever seen.
LED backlighting. One bright idea.
Full brightness with no waiting. That’s the big advantage of the LED-backlit iMac display. Unlike most displays that take time to warm up before they reach maximum brightness, an LED-backlit display is instantly on and uniformly bright. LED backlighting also gives you greater control over screen brightness. So you can finely tune the iMac display to suit the ambient light in even the dimmest room.
More pixels. Better picture.
The new iMac offers some prime pixel real estate. The 27-inch, 2560-by-1440 display has a whopping 78 percent more pixels than the 21.5-inch iMac. And a 1000:1 contrast ratio gives you more vibrant colours and blacker blacks. All that in a widescreen display with a 16:9 aspect ratio — the same as an HD TV.
Stunning from every angle.
The new 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 colour consistency — even if you’re viewing the display from the side.
The fastest iMac ever.
Now available with quad-core power.
Quad-core power comes to the 27-inch iMac with a 2.66GHz Intel Core i5 processor. Four cores deliver up to 2x faster performance for just about everything you do: managing your photos, editing HD video, even playing graphics-intensive 3D games. And since Mac OS X Snow Leopard is designed to take full advantage of Intel quad-core architectures, you get the fastest performance possible.
Every iMac comes with high-performance graphics that make games run smoother, photos load faster, and pro applications work better. If you want even speedier graphics, choose an iMac with a more advanced ATI graphics processor.
More memory and storage.
The new iMac has 4GB of 1066MHz DDR3 memory standard, with room in its four SO-DIMM slots for up to 16GB, so you can run more applications simultaneously. And with a 1TB Serial ATA hard drive feel free to load up on photos, videos, and music.
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. Over this network, everyone can print, surf the web, and play music on iTunes through your home stereo — wirelessly.
The world’s first Multi-Touch mouse.
Wireless Magic Mouse.
Forget the mouse as you know it. Every iMac comes with the wireless Magic Mouse: the world’s first Multi-Touch mouse. Use it once and you’ll wonder how you ever used anything else. There’s no scroll ball, no clunky wheel, no cord, and no visible button.
Instead, Magic Mouse uses Multi-Touch technology to let you control everything with simple gestures. Give them a try and you’ll find that Magic Mouse changes the way you interact with your computer. Built-in software lets you configure Magic Mouse any way you want. Its smooth, seamless design is ambidextrous, and it supports two-button clicking — without buttons. Like magic.
iMac banishes desktop clutter completely with a wireless keyboard to go with the wireless Magic Mouse. This low-profile keyboard takes up less desk space — 24 percent less — than larger keyboards. There’s no numeric keypad, so you can place your mouse comfortably next to the keyboard. And built-in Bluetooth means there are no cables to connect.
An iSight camera, hidden in plain view.
Look closely: Hidden behind the glass display at the top of iMac is an iSight camera. Use it with iChat, and you can be anywhere without actually being there. Video chat with up to three of your friends, share a video with a colleague, or present to a client.4 Use iSight with Photo Booth for fun photo effects. And there’s no need to waste valuable primping time installing software or configuring the camera. Like everything Mac, iSight just works.
Ports for everything. And then some.
The Mini DisplayPort lets you connect an external display, including the Apple LED Cinema Display, to your iMac. On the 27-inch iMac, the same port offers input, too. So you can connect any external source that has DisplayPort output — including a MacBook or MacBook Pro — and use your iMac as a display.
USB and FireWire.
Bring on your iPod, digital camera, mobile phone, and external hard drive. If it has a cable, iMac has a port for it. Four USB 2.0 ports and a FireWire 800 port give you plenty of peripheral possibilities.
SD card slot.
Transfer your photos and videos to and from your iMac just as fast as you’re able to take them. The new iMac has an SD card slot built in. Just insert your camera’s memory card and import your photos to iPhoto. From there, it’s easy to organize your photos by the people in them, share them online, or create photo books.
On every Mac.
Highly secure and reliable, a Mac is built on Mac OS X Snow Leopard: the world’s most advanced operating system. And every Mac comes with software that lets you do more with photos, movies, and music.
