This 24" Apple iMac desktop computer is part of a continuing effort by Apple to set the standard for computing elegance and power. The iMac packs a complete, high-performance computer into its all-in-one design. With an anodized aluminum frame and glass cover, the 24" iMac is striking to behold. And the materials from which it is constructed are highly recyclable, so an Apple iMac computer is friendlier to the environment.
Beauty by the inch
Photos, movies, games, videos, and applications with palettes. Anything you see on the 24-inch glossy widescreen display will be a pixel-perfect experience. iMac features a flat-panel LCD screen with 1920-by-1200 resolution, giving you vivid colors and breathtaking high-definition clarity. For an even better view, you can remove the stand and mount your 24-inch iMac on a wall with the VESA Mount Adapter Kit (sold separately) and see your photos and movies practically float on its big, beautiful screen. And with the stand removed, you save even more space on your desktop. And there's nothing quite like seeing your life's events on the big screen, thanks to the new iLife '09 built into every iMac.
The Intel Core 2 Duo processor inside this iMac runs at 3.06GHz. It also includes 6MB of shared L2 cache, a 1066MHz frontside bus, and 4GB of RAM. Translation: iMac runs your applications faster and more efficiently than ever before.
Built for speed
This iMac includes a high-performance NVIDIA GeForce 9400M with 512MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory standard. Now games run smoother, photos load faster, and pro applications have even more power. The graphics processor delivers up to 2.3x faster graphics performance. The integrated graphics processor makes viewing web pages and searching through your iPhoto library more efficient.
This iMac has 4GB of 1066MHz DDR3 memory standard so you can run more applications simultaneously. And with a 1TB 7200-RPM Serial ATA hard drive, load up on photos, videos, music, and more. That's a remarkable amount of storage for just about anything and everything.
Nothing peripheral about it
The ultrathin Keyboard is the perfect companion to iMac. Its anodized aluminum enclosure features low-profile keys with a crisp, responsive feel. The ultracompact design takes up a fraction of the desk space—35 percent less—of a keyboard with a numeric keypad, giving you more room to mouse comfortably next to the keyboard. The keyboard includes special function keys for one-touch control of Mac features, and two USB 2.0 ports providing high-speed connectivity to your iPod, Mighty Mouse, digital camera, and other devices.
