Innovations you can see.
You won’t want anything to distract you from what you’re viewing on these big, beautiful 21.5- and 27-inch displays. And nothing will, thanks to a new display design that reduces reflection by 75 per cent. In addition, because the LCD now sits right up against the glass, your content seems to leap off the screen.

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 colour from nearly any angle. And LED backlighting offers instant-on, uniform brightness with no waiting. So you’re always ready to share that holiday slideshow with the family.
Vivid, true-to-life colour. 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 colours are more true to life too. That’s because every iMac display is individually colour-calibrated using state-of-the-art spectroradiometers to match colour standards recognised around the world.
Powered by third-generation Intel Core processors, this iMac is the fastest yet. Every model in the lineup comes as standard with a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, starting at 2.7GHz and topping out at 3.2GHz.
Across the line, iMac features advanced NVIDIA GeForce graphics processors built on the Kepler architecture, delivering up to 60 per cent greater performance for graphics-intensive tasks.1 You’ll see more frames per second in 3D games, and you can edit HD home videos with more speed and responsiveness than ever before.
Up to a 3TB hard drive.
Go ahead and take all the photos, buy all the music and shoot all the video you want. A 1TB hard drive comes as standard, with the option to upgrade to a massive 3TB drive2 — which is 50 per cent more storage than ever before offered on iMac.
Up to 768GB of flash storage.
For maximum performance, you can configure iMac with up to 768GB of flash storage (up to 512GB on the 21.5-inch iMac) instead of a traditional hard drive. Flash storage delivers up to three times the performance of a traditional drive3 — speed you’ll notice when you start up your iMac, launch an app or browse your photo library.
Introducing Fusion Drive.
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.
Ultra-fast and ultra-flexible, 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.4 Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology is also built in, so you can use your favourite wireless accessories — such as the Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Mouse — straight out of the box.
Higher-fidelity sound and a larger soundstage.
Even though the iMac enclosure is thinner than ever, the new built-in speakers deliver higher-fidelity sound than before. So when you’re listening to that new album, watching the latest flick or playing your favourite action game, you’ll get immersive sound and a surprisingly wide soundstage.
Dual mics. Be heard loud and clear.
iMac has two built-in microphones that work together to home in on your voice and filter out the sounds around you. That means more accuracy when you’re using Dictation and better clarity during FaceTime video calls.
FaceTime HD camera for high-resolution video calls.
Get everyone in the picture with crisp, widescreen HD video. The built-in 720p FaceTime HD camera lets you make video calls that are so clear, it seems like everyone’s in the same room. Make FaceTime calls from your iMac to any FaceTime-enabled Mac, iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.5
Choose your perfect cable-free setup. Magic Mouse — which comes as standard with iMac — lets you perform simple gestures across its smooth, seamless top shell. Scroll in any direction with one finger, swipe through web pages and photos with two, and click and double-click anywhere. To take advantage of all the Multi-Touch gestures that make OS X Mountain Lion so easy and intuitive to use, choose the Magic Trackpad option when you buy from the Apple Online Store. Designed with a touch-friendly all-glass surface, it’s the largest Multi-Touch trackpad made by Apple. So there’s plenty of room for scrolling, swiping, pinching, rotating, and then some.
