Experience the power and performance of the Apple M1 Chip with the Yellow Apple 24" iMac. The Apple M1 integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O, and more into a single system on a chip (SoC). Tackle your projects with the fast 8-Core CPU and take on graphics-intensive apps and games with the 8-Core GPU. Accelerate machine learning tasks with the 16-core Neural Engine.

Measuring just 11.5 mm thin, the Apple iMac has a striking side profile as well as a compact design.

With a 4.5K (4480 x 2520) screen resolution, this iMac provides over one billion colors and 500 nits of brightness. The Retina 4.5K display also features the wide P3 color gamut, which provides a larger color space that more equally represent red, green, and blue. And with more available colors, the images will appear more vivid and reveal greater detail, with more balance and precision. The display is further enhanced by True Tone technology for a more natural viewing experience.

Connect to the internet via Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and use compatible wireless peripherals and accessories with Bluetooth 5.0. The two Thunderbolt 3 ports provide USB 4 support and can even connect to a single Apple Pro Display XDR in full 6K resolution. There are two additional USB Type-C ports. Apple also included a Full HD 1080p FaceTime HD camera with Apple's latest camera ISP in the M1 chip, enabling sharper images and more details in shadows and highlights in video calls. The studio-quality three-mic array provide high signal-to-noise ratio and directional beamforming for clear recordings and calls. The iMac also features a high-fidelity six-speaker system with force-canceling woofers. Providing wide stereo sound, the iMac also supports spatial audio when playing videos with Dolby Atmos.

This Mac comes preloaded with macOS. Updates can be downloaded for free via the Mac App Store. Please check Apple's website for upgrade eligibility.

Apple M1 Chip

Packed with 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1 integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O, and more into a single system on a chip (SoC). Built with 5nm process technology, the Apple M1 delivers the performance you need without sacrificing power efficiency. The Apple M1 features four high-performance cores, each designed to run a single task, which allows for multithreaded workloads. There are also four efficiency cores to handle lighter workloads, using only a tenth of the power while still delivering fast performance.

Redesign

The iMac features a redesign with a more compact footprint and a much slicker side profile, measuring just 11.5mm thin.

24" 4.5K Retina Display

The iMac features a 24" Retina Display with 500 nits of brightness. The Retina Display features a 4480 x 2520 resolution at 218 pixels per inch (ppi). It also supports the P3 wide color gamut, which features 25% more colors than the commonly used sRGB gamut, for even more vibrant greens and reds. The display is calibrated at the factory for accurate gamma, white point, and primary colors. The screen features an anti-reflective coating to reduce light glare.

True Tone Technology

With True Tone technology, the display and Touch Bar deliver a more natural viewing experience for design and editing workflows, as well as everyday tasks like browsing the web and writing email.

Magic Keyboard with Touch ID

The color-matched Magic Keyboard features keys for Spotlight, Dictation, Do Not Disturb, and emoji. A Touch ID sensor has been integrated into the Magic Keyboard, so you can quickly log into your account. You can also use it with Apple Pay to securely purchase things over the web.

Thunderbolt 3 with USB4 Support

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also supports USB4, allowing you to connect to more peripherals, including the Apple Pro Display XDR in full 6K resolution.

Full HD 1080p FaceTime HD Camera

The iMac now features a Full HD 1080p FaceTime HD camera, allowing you to host video chats in high quality and provides optimal performance even in low light. The iMac takes advantage of the image signal processor in the M1 chip and the Neural Engine, enhancing camera image quality with better noise reduction, greater dynamic range, and improved auto exposure and white balance. No more grainy video chats for you, you'll be able to connect with friends and family in a high quality FaceTime call. The studio-quality three-mic array also provides clear calls and voice recordings, thanks to its noise reduction and directional beamforming.

Six-Speaker System with Dolby Atmos Support

The iMac has two pairs of force-cancelling woofers placed side by side for an impressive bass response, while reducing unintended vibrations. Each pair is balanced with a high-performance tweeter. The result is a six-speaker sound system that produces a sound stage with strong, articulate bass and clear mids and highs. All of these speaker innovations, coupled with advanced algorithms, enable iMac to support spatial audio when playing video with Dolby Atmos.

On Apple.com, it mentions that the new iMAC is configurable with Ethernet. But doesn't say how or what adapter would be needed? So how do you connect to Ethernet?
Asked by: William
When "configuring" the $1299 version for gigabit ethernet, Apple simply swaps the power supply to the one included on other iMac models. The difference is only in the power supply. The "cheaper" one doesn't have the ethernet port on it. The "better" one does. Apple shows it as a +$30 upgrade. My opinion.... go with the $1499 version as there are other benefits beyond just the included ethernet enabled power supply.
