Product Description

Product Description

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. LED backlighting also lets you finely tune the iMac display to suit the ambient light in even the dimmest room.

More pixels. Better picture

The 21.5-inch iMac features 1920-by-1080 resolution.

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 our 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. You even have the option to configure the 21.5- or 27-inch iMac with the Intel Core i7, the fastest quad-core processor available. But why stop there? Add up to 16GB of DDR3 memory and an ultrafast 256GB solid-state drive, and you’ve got an all-in-one that can handle just about anything.

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 and responsiveness than you ever thought possible.

Thunderbolt -a versatile I/O in a desktop

Ultrafast and ultraflexible, the Thunderbolt port features two 10-Gbps data channels for data transfer that’s up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0. And it offers unprecedented expansion capabilities for a new generation of high-performance peripherals.

The new FaceTime HD camera

Get more of your friends in the picture with crisp, widescreen HD video. The new FaceTime HD camera lets you make FaceTime video calls in 720p resolution. The picture is so clear, it will look and feel almost like you’re in the same room. Make HD calls from one new iMac to another or to a new MacBook Pro. You can also make video calls to other Intel-based Mac computers, iPad 2, iPhone 4, or the latest iPod touch.

Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad

Now you can choose the perfect cord-free setup. When you buy your new iMac from the Apple Online Store, you have the option to swap Magic Mouse for Magic Trackpad at no extra cost. With Magic Mouse, you can perform simple gestures across its smooth, seamless top shell. Scroll in any direction with one finger, swipe through web pages and photos with two, and click and double-click anywhere. For full gesture support, opt for Magic Trackpad. Made with a touch-friendly all-glass surface, Magic Trackpad is the largest Multi-Touch trackpad made by Apple. So there’s plenty of room for scrolling, swiping, pinching, rotating, and then some.

It’s very well connected.
Thunderbolt

The new Thunderbolt port lets you daisy-chain as many as six devices plus an additional display. So with just one port you can create the ultimate do-anything desktop. And since Thunderbolt is based on DisplayPort technology, you can plug any Mini DisplayPort display right into the Thunderbolt port.

USB and FireWire

Bring on your iPad, iPod, digital camera, mobile phone, and external hard drive — there’s no shortage of ports on iMac. Four USB 2.0 ports and a FireWire 800 port give you plenty of peripheral possibilities.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

The latest 802.11n wireless technology in iMac makes it effortless to connect to a Wi-Fi network. iMac automatically finds available networks and lets you join them with a click. Bluetooth wireless technology is also built in, so you can use your favorite wireless accessories right out of the box.

SDXC

Transfer photos and videos to your iMac as fast as you take them. The built-in SDXC card slot supports SD and SDHC cards with capacities up to 2TB. Just insert your camera’s memory card and import your photos to iPhoto.

As an avid PC user for as long as I can remember I finally made the switch to Mac after having experienced the joy and elegance of iPhones and iPads.

For me rather than buying a Mac purely on the Apple brand I bought this because I wanted to try my hand at creating iPhone apps and in order to do this you require a Mac.

First of all, I just want to crack open the proverbial nutshell here and say that this is a great piece of kit. I have owned a Mac for about 6-8 weeks now and it is fast, reliable, versatile and very easy to use.

As many others have mentioned, many of the plus points relate to its look and performance. The machine is certainly very elegant - and with only one wire required, it makes my desk far more clutter free as the mouse and keyboard are both wireless.

Performance wise, it probably starts up in between 20-30 seconds. This is not too dissimilar to PCs that I have owned, but what has impressed me more is how the machine is ready to use as soon as the desktop appears. Far too often on PCs you have to wait a couple of minutes before the PC is truly usable due to its loading of various background programs. Not so with a Mac - you can load up the desktop and be browsing on Facebook extremely quickly.

Shut-down time is about 5 seconds for me - very very fast. I am a fairly hefty user of a computer and I'm pleased to say this Mac holds up very well. I did upgrade the RAM from 4Gb to 12Gb (bought 2x4Gb RAM from Crucial for about £35) - which means that at no point has my Mac ever slowed down due to a lack of memory.

A lot of people will worry about what programs can be run on a Mac that don't on a PC. This clearly depends on the user but for me all programs I use regularly on PC port over to Mac easily.

Having owned an iPad (fantastic - just get one) for about 6 months I finally succumbed to the lure of the iMac with promises of legendary usability, speed and quietness after a lifetime using various versions of Microsoft operating systems and PC/Laptops.

Let's be clear, while the iMac usability is great, it does take lots of time to adjust to the way Apple does things and things that are "second nature" have to be re-learnt. Also, I am not convinced that the usability between the very latest Windows versions and Apple are that great although undeniably the iMac (Lion) interface is excellent and certainly wins any beauty contest.

Other benefits? Well it looks fantastic, boot up times are incredible and it is so quiet compared to my (admittedly old) PC. I ended up buying Office for iMac as I am just used to the way it works and Outlook migration is easier if you have archive (.pst) files.

Is it worth the extra £500 compared to the "all in one" Lenovo I was also considering? After a month of ownership I would probably say just about, but if you don't have the spare cash and are an experienced PC user then don't fall for the Apple Mafia hype as modern PC's are also very good.

Well I finally took to plunge to get this iMac after months of indecision. I was very dubious about the price, getting used to a new system and having to obtain new software for day-to-day use! A lifetime pc user and not always the best at change, after one day of ownership I am thrilled and utterly convinced with Macs.

The screen is crystal clear and the 21.5 inches fits in my living room perfectly and far out performs my HD TV!. The keyboard is small but very easy to use. The 'Return' key is much smaller than I'm used to but that will come with time! The magic mouse lives up to its name. It is sooo nice not to have wires everywhere. Initial set-up is quick and painless. Whilst getting used to different names of programs over pc lingo will take me a little time, the software is far superior to windows in every way and actually very intuitive. Importing photos form a USB Flash backup was a breeze and the picture quality is amazing. Media Player is positively archaic ! This machine is so quite when in use.

Startup and shut down times are so fast I now take pleasure in actually sitting there for a few seconds whilst it happens instead of wondering off and doing something else whilst my 3 year old laptop takes its time! Yes the price may be steep at first glance before you purchase this computer, but the components, build quality and software speak for themselves. I did have reservations about having to purchase additional software to create new word/ excel document equivalents, but with some perseverance on google I managed to obtain a free licence for iWorks. Having imported all my documents, files and photos, the iMac is still running as fast it was before. It is also lovely not to be tied into some anti-virus software that again slows down your system.

I am completly convinced of my iMac over pc and will report back in a few months having lived and worked with it for a while.

Coming from a 20yr old. Having owned and used an iMac for around 3 months.

I won't go too much into the general specs of the iMac as this can be found on multiple reviews and the apple website so what's the point. However I will tell you something of my own experience with my iMac and Apple.

Before I took the plunge and converted to apple I was very afraid and very skepticle of buying and using a Mac. Questions on my mind were things like "Can it do everything I do on my pc?", "Will it be a nightmare to learn a whole different system?" and "Is it really worth the high price tag?".

Ever since I got my iMac Apple has not only met but exceeded my expectations by far. To answer my previous questions:
-Yes a Mac can do everything you can do on a pc and more (if your a gamer go bootcamp, its what I did)
-No learning to use Mac OSX was far easier than I imagined and much smoother and user friendly than windows in my opinion. (The only thing I couldn't get the hang of was the one button click but I set that on preferences to left and right click so I could keep my beloved right click)
-For me yes it was definately worth every penny. Although as with all things it depends on what your looking for. If you want the best though just go for a mac and don't look back. Sure you could get a cheaper pc but chances are it: won't look as nice, work as fast, last as long (important one) or just generally give you as much pleasure using a computer as a mac will.

Yes I have fallen for Apple. But they won me over because I feel they make vastly superior products with vastly superior customer service.

I will conclude with a few examples of how good customer service was for me with Apple.
