Apple has recently introduced iPad Mini, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t focused on their desktop devices, and speaking of which, Apple has updated iMac line, so let’s see what updated iMac can offer to its users.
New iMac is just 5mm thin thanks to the slim aluminum and glass enclosure, and lack of built-in optical drive. There are two models available, 21.5-inch and 27-inch, and they are powered by Intel’s Ivy Bridge 3rd gen Core i5 processor that can be upgraded to Core i7, 8GB of RAM, and NVIDIA GeForce graphics ranging from GT640M to GTX 675MX.
New iMac comes with 1TB hard drive, but 27-inch model can be upgraded to 3TB hard drive or use Fusion Drive or 768GB flash storage. As for the Fusion Drive, it combines performance of flash storage and capacity of hard drive, so it combines 128GB of flash with your hard drive, giving you the fast performance and file access.
21.5-inch iMac supports 1920×1080 display resolution while the 27-inch model has a 2560×1440 display, and both of these models offer IPS technology, LED-backlit, Mini DisplayPort output, and both of them are reengineered so they come with 75 percent reduced reflection.
As for connectivity, both models use 4 USB 3.0 ports, two Thunderbolt ports, Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi 802.11b/g/n. Additional features include SDXC card slot, stereo speakers, dual microphone, and support for multi display.
