New iMacs from Apple


Apple has not forgotten about those who love their iMac line by updating this range with a couple of new models that will boast a brilliant LED-backlit 21.5″ and 27″ widescreen displays. Apart from that, you can be sure that they will be extremely beautiful machines to look at, thanks to a new edge-to-edge glass design and seamless all aluminum enclosure. All new iMacs will ship with a wireless keyboard alongside the recently unveiled wireless Magic Mouse that holds the title of being the first mouse with Multi-Touch technology in the world, giving you a somewhat similar user experience that can be found on other multi-touch products by Apple including the iPhone, iPod touch and Mac notebook trackpad.

As mentioned earlier, the new iMac will come with stunning LED-backlit displays that are suited for movie buffs as it has a 16:9 aspect ratio that makes it perfect for watching high definition movies and TV shows directly from iTunes, while editing and watching your own videos or photos via iLife is also a cinch. As for the 21.5″ model, it will have a maximum resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels while the much larger 27″ machine will come with a 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution. Both models are tipped to rely on IPS technology to deliver consistent color across an ultra wide 178 degree viewing angle.

In terms of graphical performance, the new iMacs don’t disappoint as they boast NVIDIA’s GeForce 9400M integrated graphics solution or the ATI Radeon HD 4670 discrete graphics in the 21.5″ model. If you feel that neither are suitable for you, there is always the option to pick up the 27″ model that comes with ATI Radeon HD 4670 discrete graphics or ATI Radeon HD 4850 discrete graphics. You can have up to 16GB of RAM from the standard 4GB it ships with if performance is of utmost importance to you, while other features include a built-in iSight video camera, mic and stereo speakers, AirPort Extreme 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR connectivity, Gigabit Ethernet, four USB 2.0 ports, one FireWire 800 port and an integrated SD memory card slot.
