Design

27" Display
Today's iMac has come a long way from the first 15" iMac. Take one look and you'll see just how far. A 27" 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.
LED Backlighting
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.
High Resolution
Apple engineers could simply have stretched the display found in the 21.5" iMac up and out for the 27" model. Instead, they took the display well beyond HD with 2560 x 1440 resolution. That's 78 percent more pixels than the 21.5" iMac display.
Evolution of iMac
It was a great idea then, and it's a great idea now. The all-in-one design of the first flat-panel iMac cleaned up the desktop. It put everything you need -- display, processor, graphics card, hard drive, optical drive, memory, and more -- inside one simple enclosure. Today, iMac is the gold standard for an all-in-one desktop computer.
Seamless Enclosure
While you'll find a collection of ports on the back of iMac, you won't find much else. A seamless, precision-forged enclosure makes the back one continuous aluminum surface. And there's only one cord: the power cord.
Cool, Quiet Components
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 ultraquiet, so you hardly know it's on.
A Tidier Desktop
iMac comes with a wireless keyboard and either a Magic Mouse. With Magic Mouse, you get a mouse unlike any other. Its smooth, seamless design lets you control everything with simple gestures.
Edge-to-Edge Glass
The glass that surrounds the LED backlit display wraps around the edge of the aluminum enclosure.
Tapered Pedestal
Another victory over clutter, the finely tapered pedestal practically disappears on the desktop.
Integrated Speakers
Built-in speakers deliver loud, clear sound with notable bass response and very little distortion.

Features

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, a 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" iMac features 2560 x 1440 resolution. These 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 Processor
Powered by a quad-core processor, the iMac is the fastest yet -- up to 70 percent faster than the previous generation. This iMac is powered by a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor. It is configured with 4GB of DDR3 memory, and can be upgraded to handle as much as 16GB! Add in a 1TB 7200rpm hard drive and you've got an all-in-one that can handle just about anything.
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 -- Fast, Versatile I/O
Ultrafast and ultraflexible, each of the two Thunderbolt ports features two 10Gbps 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. So in an instant, iMac can go from a family computer to a filmmaker's dream machine.
FaceTime HD Camera
Get more of your friends in the picture with crisp, widescreen HD video. The 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 iMac to another or to a MacBook Pro. You can also make video calls to other Intel-based Mac computers, iPad 2, iPhone 4, or the iPod touch with front-facing camera.
Multi-Touch Magic Mouse
Now you can choose the perfect cord-free setup. The iMac ships with Apple's Magic Mouse. It allows you to 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.
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 dual-band 802.11n wireless technology in iMac makes it effortless to connect to a Wi-Fi network -- regardless of whether it uses 2.4GHz or 5GHz technology. 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.

Performance

Up to 1.7x Faster at the Core
A quad-core 3.1GHz Intel Core i5 processor is installed in this iMac. The CPU uses Intel's recently refined chipsets. That means the iMac performs nearly twice as fast as the previous generation, adding a new dimension of speed to everything you do. And since Mac OS X is designed to take advantage of each core, it captures every last bit of performance from the processor.
Turbo Boost 2.0
Say you're using a processor-intensive application like Aperture 3 or Final Cut Pro that benefits from extra power. Turbo Boost 2.0 automatically increases the speed of the active cores -- up to 3.4GHz. And by shifting core frequency in small increments, Turbo Boost allows the processor to manage performance without sacrificing efficiency. All this takes place behind the scenes, so your work (or play) goes smoother and faster.
Fast Single-Chip Microarchitecture
Watching a movie, updating your blog, editing photos. Tasks like these require data to travel from place to place. The latest 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.
Integrated Memory Controller
With faster access to memory, each core gets right to work on your data, rather than waiting for it to arrive. That's why Intel Core architecture uses an integrated memory controller to connect fast 1333MHz memory directly to the processor. Together with 6MB of shared L3 cache, that helps your applications run at peak performance.
Advanced AMD Radeon HD Graphics
When you need performance for things like playing 3D games, editing HD video, or running design software, the discrete AMD Radeon HD graphics in iMac go to work. You see more frames per second and experience better responsiveness. But no matter which iMac you choose, you're guaranteed superior graphics performance. The iMac's AMD Radeon HD 6970M GPU features 1GB of dedicated GDDR5 video memory, providing up to three times faster performance than the previous generation.

Software

Mac OS X
At the heart of every iMac -- and every Mac -- is Mac OS X, an operating system custom made for the Intel multicore processors and advanced graphics inside. Mac OS X comes with all the apps you need to do the everyday things -- send and receive e-mail, browse the web, edit and share photos, and more -- the moment you turn on your iMac. And Mac OS X does something else that's pretty remarkable: It backs up your data for you automatically, thanks to an app called Time Machine. Time Machine backs up your entire system to your external hard drive or Time Capsule. It keeps a spare copy of every file, and it remembers how your system looked on any given day. So you can revisit your Mac as it appeared in the past.
Viral Immunity
Trojan horses, worms, e-mail viruses. The digital world can be a scary place. Thankfully, a Mac isn't susceptible to the thousands of viruses plaguing Windows-based computers. Mac OS X comes with built-in defenses that keep you safe, without any work on your part. And when a potential security threat arises, Apple responds quickly by providing software updates and security enhancements you can download automatically and install with a click.
Mac App Store
More than a thousand Mac apps are a click away at the Mac App Store. Find the ones you want and simply click to download and install. No more boxes. No more disks. No more hassle. You can browse apps by category or search for something specific. And you can easily keep your apps up to date, because your Mac will let you know when updates are available.
FaceTime HD
iMac comes with the FaceTime HD camera and easy-to-use FaceTime for Mac software. Just click to make HD video calls to another iMac or MacBook Pro. You can also make video calls to other Intel-based Mac computers, iPad 2, iPhone 4, or the iPod touch with front-facing camera. FaceTime automatically displays your contacts from Address Book, so you don't have to build a buddy list. And calls ring through to your Mac even when you don't have the FaceTime app open.
iLife '11
With iLife '11, you'll do more with photos, movies, and music than you ever thought possible. iPhoto lets you browse, edit, and share your photos with full-screen views. iMovie turns your home videos into epic movie trailers. And GarageBand gives you everything you need to make a great-sounding song -- including tools for keeping your song in perfect rhythm and guitar and piano lessons.

The Environment

Efficient Power Supply
iMac includes a highly efficient power supply that reduces the amount of power wasted when bringing electricity from the wall to your computer. Lower power consumption reduces energy bills and lessens the environmental impact of greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.
Advanced Power Management
Unlike a lot of Windows-based PC systems, iMac uses energy-efficient hardware components that work hand in hand with the operating system to conserve power. Mac OS X spins down hard drives and activates sleep mode on already energy-efficient LED backlit displays. And it balances tasks across both central processors and graphics processors. Mac OS X never misses a power-saving opportunity, no matter how small. It even regulates the processor between keystrokes, reducing power between the letters you type. That's just one of many ways Apple manages small amounts of power that add up to big savings.
ENERGY STAR Qualification
iMac meets the stringent low power requirements set by the EPA, giving it ENERGY STAR qualification. ENERGY STAR 5.2 sets significantly higher efficiency limits for power supplies and aggressive limits for the computer's typical annual power consumption.
Fewer Toxins
The greatest environmental challenge facing the computer industry is the presence of arsenic, brominated flame retardants (BFRs), mercury, phthalates, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) in products. Apple engineers have worked hard to eliminate BFRs and PVC from iMac circuit boards, internal and external cables, connectors, insulators, adhesives, and more. And they've eliminated many other toxins that are a common part of desktop computer manufacturing -- choosing, for example, mercury-free backlighting and arsenic-free glass for the iMac display.
Recyclable Materials
Apple has minimized the waste when iMac reaches end of life through its ultraefficient design and the use of aluminum and glass, which recyclers can reuse for other products.
EPEAT Gold
Through its innovative and environmentally friendly design, iMac has earned the highest rating of EPEAT Gold. The Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool, or EPEAT, evaluates the environmental impact of a product based on how recyclable it is, how much energy it uses, and how it's designed and manufactured.
Life Cycle Impact
Apple's life cycle analysis accounts for all emissions associated with their products. That includes raw material extraction, manufacturing, packaging, transportation, a three- or four-year period of use, and recycling. In the course of this analysis, they have determined that more than 95 percent of Apple's total greenhouse gas emissions come from the products they make.

Thunderbolt -- In Depth

Powerful Technology from a Powerful Collaboration
Thunderbolt began at Intel Labs with a simple concept: create an incredibly fast input/output technology that just about anything can plug into. After close technical collaboration between Intel and Apple, Thunderbolt emerged from the lab to make its appearance in the MacBook Pro and the iMac.

Intel co-invented USB and PCI Express, which have become widely adopted technologies for data transfer. Apple invented FireWire and was instrumental in popularizing USB. Their collective experience has made Thunderbolt the most powerful, most flexible I/O technology ever in a personal computer.
One Small Port -- One Giant Leap in Possibilities
Both MacBook Pro and iMac now give you access to a world of high-speed peripherals and high-resolution displays with one compact port. That's because Thunderbolt is based on two fundamental technologies: PCI Express and DisplayPort.

PCI Express is the technology that links all the high-performance components in a Mac. And it's built into Thunderbolt. Which means you can connect external devices like RAID arrays and video capture solutions directly to MacBook Pro or iMac - and get PCI Express performance. That's a first for any computer. Thunderbolt also provides 10 watts of power to peripherals, so you can tackle workstation-class projects on the go with MacBook Pro or from your home office with iMac. With PCI Express technology, you can use existing USB and FireWire peripherals - even connect to Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre-Channel networks - using simple adapters.

And because Thunderbolt is based on DisplayPort technology, the video standard for high-resolution displays, any Mini DisplayPort display plugs right into the Thunderbolt port. To connect a DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, or VGA display, just use an existing adapter.
Performance and Expansion Made Ultrafast and Ultrasmart
Thunderbolt I/O technology gives you two channels on the same connector with 10Gbps of throughput in both directions. That makes Thunderbolt ultrafast and ultraflexible. You can move data to and from peripherals up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and up to 12 times faster than with FireWire-800. You also have more than enough bandwidth to daisy-chain multiple high-speed devices without using a hub or switch. For example, you can connect several high-performance external disks, a video capture device, and even a Mini DisplayPort display to a single Thunderbolt chain while maintaining maximum throughput.
High Performance on Display
Thunderbolt I/O technology provides native support for Mini DisplayPort displays. It also supports DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, and VGA displays through the use of existing adapters. So you can connect your Apple LED Cinema Display or other existing display, along with multiple high-speed devices, all from a single port.
No Project Is Too Massive
Now you can create a professional video setup for your MacBook Pro or iMac, just as you would for your Mac Pro. If you're a video editor, imagine connecting high-performance storage, a high-resolution display, and high-bit-rate video capture devices to handle all the post-production for a feature film -- right on your MacBook Pro or iMac. Thunderbolt I/O technology allows you to daisy-chain up to six peripherals - such as the Promise Pegasus RAID or LaCie Little Big Disk -- plus an Apple LED Cinema Display.

And that's just the beginning. With Thunderbolt technology, peripheral manufacturers finally have what they need to take high-performance devices from workstations and top-of-the-line desktops to just about any computer.

      I am a professional event photographer, which means I take anywhere from 10,000 - 40,000 images a week. The need to store and create "Wow" at my events to entice sales, in quick, crisp slideshows is a must. Now I can run 2 additional monitors for even greater impact.
      Out of the box experience - 2 B&H boxes surround the Apple product box. So it arrived in perfect shape. Added 8GB of ram in just a few seconds after pulling it out of the box, for a total of 12GB. Turned it on the and it asked if I already owned a Mac Computer - yes, I have a 2008 Macbook Pro 15". Offered to transfer all my installed software and setting in one easy step with a firewire cable. No need to sit there and swap installation disks and search for passwords/ installation codes. 40 minutes later, it was done and was an exact copy of my laptop experience that I am so familiar with.
      I immediately wanted to see how much faster this computer is than the MBP so I had them do a side by side encoding of a slideshow I created in iPhoto at 1920x1080 with 123 dance images I shot (12MP files) into a .Mov file. Results were very impressive 52 minutes vs 198 minutes (3HR 18 minutes).
      Lots of ports to connect various devices to, runs nearly silently.

      I love all Apple products, and my iMac 27". Its a great performance in this amazing screen. But with 2 months, the video dead. Now, with 13 months of use, i see problems again with green spots at right side. And the ethernet dont work now. The ethernet card is integrated with the motherboard, so I'll have to replace the entire motherboard with an absurd expense. I still love Apple and the computer is awesome, but Apple is not as confident about the durability and quality as it once was for me.

            I've only used my new iMac 3 days and I have had no problems learning how to get around in the system. This system is packed with great software you will never find included with a PC. My first "MAC", purchased due to great recommendations, and reviews. My next laptop will be a MAC. The extra money you fork out is justified when you hit the power button and experience the view on the huge 27 inch screen. I'm very happy with this purchase.

              Comments about Apple 27" iMac Desktop Computer:

              As a Mac user , still saddled with a Power Mac, the switch to OS10 Lion was like entering heaven before my time. Everything is superior: the screen is brilliant {who needs a TV]; it's faster than lightning; my applications open before I'm ready to start; the internet is more fun than ever; and it has made it possible to unclutter my desk and have room for other tools I need as a designer. I can't understand why i waited so long. If you are thinking of upgrading or switching from a PC, don't wait, jump in; only pleasure awaits you. Last but not least: B&H HAS THE LOWEST PRICE ANYWHERE!

              Comments about Apple 27" iMac Desktop Computer:

              I have wanted to throw this imac against the wall a dozen time. Very frustrating. There is no back button. It will not do any of dozens of common things I am used to on PCs. I really miss the right click button.
              I am looking to sell this over priced mac and get back to a PC.
              I had hoped it would be user friendly, like an iPhone. Nope. Wrong.
              In fact an iPad is much more user friendly.
              Anyone who likes a mac, must have never learned to us a PC.

              My advice for any thinking of trading their old PC for a Mac. Don't.
              Just upgrade to a new PC. I wished I had seen a report like this before laying out my big bucks. It cannot us common programs like.
              You have no idea how many common programs will not work on a mac.

                Comments about Apple 27" iMac Desktop Computer:

                Within five minutes of unpacking my new iMac, I was on Facetime!!! I was so amazed. Within two days of setting up my new iMac (this is my first non Windows PC), I added Windows 7... yep a dual boot. Now I can telework using Windows, and do my real stuff using Mac OS. It was so easy.
                Since everything comes preloaded on the iMac, there was nothing to do except link it to the Wi-Fi and put in the email accounts. I am still amazed at how easy this product is to use and kicking myself for not making the switch sooner. And, no wires to plug in... only the power cord. How simple is that!

                Ahhh, yes awe at the display. Photos look amazing on this computer. The 27 inch display is the way to go. It makes photo editing and spreadsheet reading a piece of cake. Great product!!!

                  Finally made the switch from PC to Mac and I am in love. I use this thing for editing and I can't believe what a difference it has made in my workflow. Wish I hadn't waited so long to switch over.

                    We are first time Mac owners well beside the iPad and ipod that we own. I was worried it would be a hard adjustment going from a PC to a Mac but it hasn't been a problem at all. Great quaility product!

                            This is our first mac (we've been PC people for a long time) but due to some increasing interest in photography and video editing we decided to give the iMac a try.
                            We've had it for a couple of weeks and it has been great. Very easy to set up.

                                Five stars so far: I've only had this Mac for about a week & a half and it's my first iMac. I process photographs. I've used a Mac since the first one in 1984 with 128K and each one just gets better. You can use most any software with this iMac, including Windows for personal finance and Office documents. I am having trouble with Lion and its incompatibility with the scanners that I use, and that makes me sad; but the speed, the clarity of the display, the ease of set up and use will make me work a little harder to find out how to remedy the situation.

                                            I love this new Imac! I use it to edit HD video in Final Cut 7.. and X on the Lion partition. The mac is very fast and transfering media thru the Thunderbolt port is amazing.
