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 27-inch iMac boasts even greater resolution of 2560-by-1440. That’s a whopping 78 percent more pixels than the 21.5-inch model. And more pixels mean images look crisp and true to life. 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 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 27-inch iMac gives you not just one but two Thunderbolt ports. So in an instant, iMac can go from a family computer to a filmmaker’s dream machine.

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. If you choose the new 27-inch iMac, a second Thunderbolt port lets you expand even more. 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.

Don't be fooled into thinking the iMac is the cheap brother of the Mac pro and is thus worse. In many ways, in terms of both hardware and manufacture, the iMac trumps the Pro (which has not been updated in several years while the iMac has been) The pro is good if you wish to upgrade etc, but if you want raw power and versatile use in a single package, this is the machine for you. I use both Pro's and 24inch iMacs and can hand on heart say neither run anywhere near as smoothly- again, the Pro is more for those who wish to expand/want maximum compatibilty. This beast handles both Windows 7 and OSX incredibly with it's seemingly weak (on paper) i5 chip. I can run Chrysis 2 with almost full res and every single Adobe Master Collection application simultaniously with barely any performance lag. Yes, mine is upgraded to 12 gig of ram but even with the basic 4 gig you can get almost the same results and upgrading is a piece of cake (33 quid off amazon for 8gig!)

This or the 21.5inch? Psh! Easy! The Apple Cinema Screen of 30 inches is almost a grand retail. You get almost that for just 200 or so pounds more than the 21 inch. The 27 also has a better cooling system meaning the overall lifespan of the mac is improved; thus making it a better long term investment.

So i implore you. If you have a grand or so to spare and are not sure of the iMac, wonder no more. Gamer or Professional, this is the system for you.

I have owned this machine for a week now and when i bought it it came with Windows Office 2011 for mac which was useful to me as i was told its 100% compatible with windows office 2007 which is part of my college course. i own an iphone 4 and bought and ipad 2 which i absolutely treasure, it all started with me buying an ipod touch and has progressed from there.
Since owning mostly apple products i decided that i would opt for a mac and chose this model and so far i have been extremely impressed with the speed, most notable boot up and shut down times...mere seconds! for an ex windows user i was shocked.

Also the new Intel Sandy Bridge i5 processor is a leap from the i3 and the i3 is still amazing. The resolution is astounding when watching video and looking at photos, 2560 x 1440 i think, and that is HD x 2 so you get crisp images and games look sharper. I know alot of PC people dismiss the mac when it comes to gaming but i have a few games that are pc/mac compatible and they run fast and with no problems. This is my first Mac and i have alot to learn but i think Mac OS X is amazing and super fast from what i've seen from windows 7

If you are thinking about buying this. It is expensive but you get what u pay for.

This purcahse was my final transition from Windows to Mac and absolutely no regrets at all. Now have imac, airbook, ipad, iphone etc and the way these pieces of technology work so well together is very impressive. The imac is of course a lovely piece of kit, no need to add same comments about gorgeous screen etc but the concept of having the entire computer in one stylish screen has tidied up my home study no end. I bought the apple VESA adaptor ( Bargain at Bestbuys closing down sale ! ) and have now mounted my imac on a VESA TV bracket so it appears to float a few inches above my desk in fresh air from the wall, very neat indeed.

Back to the imac, i bought this one instead of the faster model because in the review of all the versions in a mac magazine when they came out, they commented that the difference in speed between the two processors was neglible so i saved a few hundred quid and went for the slower one, and spent £60 on the 16 GB RAM upgrade from Crucial.I am using mine for a lot of photography work so the extra RAM was more beneficial to me than a faster processor ( which apparantly is only a tiny bit faster anyway ) I guess if other customers are interested in playing games on their imac the faster one would be slightly better but to be honest, wacking up the RAM is going to be more beneficial for everything else except games. Adding extra RAM is a complete doddle, took about a minute and works perfectly.

I have hooked mine up to a recently purchased Synology DS212 NAS and put my itunes library on the NAS and switched on the itunes server so now I can access my itunes library throughout my house ( and via the internet from away ) without the imac being switched on, great stuff.

Verified Purchase
After suffering tiny and low res screens for decades, the 27" iMac is a joy. Total joy. So much screen real estate. Its fast enough for what I do - and at only 4GB RAM, it works fine. (I do want to upgrade RAM at a later date, but the 4GB is good enough). MacOS has some of its own quirks, but the machine just works flawlessly. This item was a second hand unit, and it has given me no issues. I was waiting for new iMacs to be released, but, as of this date, they still have not. I dont regret buying now - even if new iMacs come out, I saved a lot by buying this. I had researched for 3+ months this item - looking at resellers and fair prices, and this hit my target price at the right time.

I worried about the pixel size, but I need not have.

One of the best devices I ever purchased, if not the best.
