The ultimate all-in-one desktop now features quad-core processors, up to 3x faster graphics, Thunderbolt and a FaceTime HD camera, 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 1920×1080 resolution. More pixels mean images look crisp and true to life. A 1000:1 contrast ratio gives you more vibrant colours 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 colour 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 80 per cent faster than the previous generation every model in the lineup comes as standard with the latest Intel Core i5 quad-core processor.
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. The fastest, most versatile I/O in a desktop.
Ultra-fast and ultra-flexible, 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.
