Apple iMac MC309B/A ... the first 15-inch iMac. Take one look and you'll see just how far. A display with edge-to-edge glass covers nearly the entire front of the enclosure. When all you see is the display, nothing gets between you and what's onscreen. Movies, TV shows, FaceTime HD video calls, websites, photos - everything looks stunning on the widescreen 16:9 iMac display.
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 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 ultra quiet, so you hardly know it's on.
Watching a movie, updating your blog, editing photos. Tasks like these require data to travel from place to place. The Intel Core architecture puts the processor, cache, memory controller, and graphics engine on a single chip. Since data doesn't have as far to travel, you get faster performance and greater efficiency.
Thunderbolt technology has arrived - and Apple computers are the first to have it. With one tiny port, you get lightning-fast transfer speeds and huge expansion capabilities. Two 10-Gbps data channels per port mean you can transfer data up to 12 times faster than with FireWire 800. And don't worry about a single drive or peripheral tying up the Thunderbolt port: you can daisy-chain as many as six devices plus a display.

After being a self-proclaimed "fan" of the iPhone and iPad, and when my windows based laptop finally gave up on me, having been so impressed with my previous apple products, I chose my next computer to be the new 21.5" Apple iMac. ****Design**** The iMac is a truly beautiful machine to look at, a single unit with only one cable, the power cord, cased in an all aluminium shell with a gloss black border surround of the screen. It comes with the bluetooth connected wireless keyboard and magic mouse, however, I bought the apple trackpad to replace the mouse as it offers more flexibility when using the operating system by making the most ...

The All In One Apple iMac, was my first Apple purchase as recommended to me buy a musician friend about 3 years ago who assured me that Apple was the way forward. It wasn't too long after this that I became a complete Apple fan, so much so that I later upgraded to a Mac Pro 2 years later. This iMac was primary used for music programming, photo editing, word processing, Internet etc and has now moved from my studio to my office for mainly word processing, watching freeview. And it gets a lot of family use too. SPEC: The high res display is 1920x1080p which is full HD and simply stunning, and great for when I have to do my photo editing. Comes with 4 ...

Overview Many of my relatives and friends who actually own an iMac, always tell me about the beauty of it, and how amazing it is. However, this is not the case, yes I agree with the fact that the iMac runs smoothly however the operating system is no where as good windows. This may be because I have always used windows and never used the MacOS, but what ever the case is, I actually regret buying this product as any PC with window is my favourite choice. Nevertheless, I can never say that I don't try new things:P Even if it cost me £1000, yes the iMac cost around £900-£1000. All apple products have amazing manufacturer support. I am aware of this is many of my ... Read the complete review

I've had my iMac now for a good few years, and its still as good as the day it was purchased. The decision to spend just over £1000 for a computer was made after our windows laptop had a slow demise. The decision to move to a desktop was quickly made. Living in a small apartment in the City Centre, space has always been an issue and when looking at Windows PC's at the time, nothing was suitable for the space we had for it. So after a month or so of research (and whining to my boyfriend) we decided on the iMac. It was a pretty big decision for us, as it would be our fitst big major purchase TOGETHER. As there isn't an Apple store where we live, it ... Read the complete review

Having previously owned Windows based products, I found switching over to Apple quite daunting, I've owned a couple of ipods, but nothing this serious. I've heard many arguments for and against apple systems, many commenting on their large price tag and apparent difficulty to use compared with windows, and having used both in a professional and personal manner, I prefer apple every time. The styling speaks for itself, its a beautiful product and I don't need to say anymore. It's super fast and, after a week or two playing around, far easier and quicker to use than any other Microsoft system I know of. I have OSX Lion with my imac which, having used my fiancees ...
