Creating the stunningly thin design of the new iMac took some equally stunning feats of technological innovation. Apple refined, re-imagined, or re-engineered everything about it from the inside out. The result is an elegant all-in-one computer that's as much a work of art as it is state of the art. With third-generation Intel Core processors, the latest NVIDIA graphics, Thunderbolt, and groundbreaking storage options, the slimmest iMac yet is also the most powerful. OS X Mountain Lion makes every Mac intuitive and easy to use. It also makes it simple to find, organize, share, and do just about everything. And thanks to iCloud, it makes your Mac, iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch work wonderfully together.
IPS technology and LED backlighting
The gorgeous iMac display looks great from any seat in the house. A technology called in-plane switching (IPS) gives you a bright picture with excellent color from nearly any angle. And LED backlighting offers instant-on, uniform brightness with no waiting. So you're always ready to share that vacation slideshow with the family.
Vivid, true-to-life color every time
Everything you see on the big, glossy display - from skin tones and dark shadows to bright blue skies and green fields - is rich and vibrant. And the colors are more true to life, too. That's because every iMac display is individually color-calibrated using state-of-the-art spectroradiometers to match color standards recognized around the world.
Go ahead and take all the photos, buy all the music, and shoot all the video you want. A 1 TB hard drive comes standard on the new iMac, with the option to upgrade to a massive 3 TB drive - which is 50 percent more storage than ever before offered on iMac.
The new iMac introduces a breakthrough storage option called Fusion Drive, which combines a high-capacity hard drive with high-performance flash storage. Fusion Drive automatically and intelligently manages your data so that frequently used apps, documents, photos, and other files stay on the faster flash storage, while infrequently used items move to the hard drive. You'll enjoy shorter boot times, and as the system learns how you work, you'll experience faster application launches and quicker file access.
Ultrafast and ultraflexible, the tiny Thunderbolt port offers unprecedented transfer speeds and incredibly versatile expansion capabilities. Connect high-performance peripherals such as external drives, cameras, audio and video capture devices - even Mini DisplayPort displays for more screen real estate. All iMac models include two Thunderbolt ports, so you can create the ultimate do-anything desktop.
Bring on your printer, digital camera, mobile phone, and external hard drive. Every iMac comes with four USB 3 ports - with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2 - so you'll have plenty of peripheral possibilities, including your iPhone or iPod, printer, or Apple USB SuperDrive.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
The latest 802.11n wireless technology in iMac makes it effortless to connect to a Wi-Fi network. Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology is also built in, so you can use your favorite wireless accessories right out of the box.
