It’s amazing to look at. And even more amazing to use.
A big, bold display. Fourth-generation Intel quad-core processors and the latest NVIDIA graphics. An advanced Fusion Drive option. And much more. No desktop has ever brought so much to the table.
Huge, LED-backlit widescreen display. Easy on the eyes. Actually, phenomenal.
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 an amazing display design that reduces reflection by 75 percent. In addition, because the LCD 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 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.
Fourth-generation Intel Core processors. Four cores, infinite possibilities.
Powered by fourth-generation Intel Core processors, this iMac is the fastest yet. Every model in the lineup comes standard with a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, starting at 2.7GHz and topping out at 3.4GHz. And at the Apple Online Store, you can configure your iMac with an even more powerful Intel Core i7 processor, up to 3.5GHz.
New NVIDIA graphics. They’re flat-out faster.
iMac graphics are more powerful across the board. NVIDIA GeForce 700 series graphics processors are even faster than the previous generation and include double the video memory. So 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. And you can get discrete-level performance in the 2.7GHz iMac with integrated Intel Iris Pro graphics.
Advanced storage options. More speed in more space.
Faster Fusion Drive.
Fusion Drive is our breakthrough storage option that combines a high-capacity hard drive with high-performance flash storage. And now it’s up to 50 percent faster than before.1 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.
Up to 1TB of flash storage.
For maximum performance, you can configure iMac with up to 1TB of flash storage (up to 512GB on the 21.5-inch iMac) instead of a traditional hard drive. This flash storage is now up to 50 percent faster than the previous generation and delivers up to 5x the performance of a traditional drive — speed you’ll notice when you start up your iMac, launch an app, or browse your photo library.
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 standard, with the option to upgrade to a massive 3TB hard drive.
Ports and connections.
Versatile, high-speed I/O.
Faster 802.11ac Wi-Fi
iMac now supports ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi. When it’s connected to an 802.11ac base station — including the new AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule — wireless performance is up to 3x faster than with the previous generation of iMac. And your Wi-Fi range improves as well.
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. Learn more about Thunderbolt
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. And the USB 3 ports are fully compatible with your USB 2 devices.
Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology is also built in, so you can use your favorite wireless accessories — such as the Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Mouse — right out of the box.
Audio and visual. We’ve made things even more perfectly clear.
Higher-fidelity sound and a larger soundstage.
Even though the iMac enclosure is thinner than ever, the 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 favorite 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.
Wireless Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad.
Two ways to Multi-Touch.
Choose your perfect cord-free setup. Magic Mouse — which comes 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 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.
OS X Mavericks. The world’s most advanced desktop operating system.
OS X is what makes your Mac so intuitive and easy to use. It’s built specifically for the Mac, so you get a fully integrated system in which everything works together perfectly. OS X takes full advantage of the powerful technologies in every Mac. It includes an amazing collection of apps for browsing the web, viewing maps, sending messages, and so much more. And thanks to iCloud, OS X makes your Mac, iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch work wonderfully together
Great built-in apps. All the things you need to do all the things you want.
iMac comes loaded with great creativity apps: iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. So you can do more with your photos, videos, music, documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. You also get apps for sending email, managing your schedule, and automatically backing up your Mac. There’s even an app for shopping for new apps at the Mac App Store
iCloud. Your content. On all your devices.
iCloud stores your content and lets you access your music, photos, calendars, contacts, documents, and more from whatever device you’re on. So if you take a picture with your iPhone or make changes to your meeting schedule on your iPad, iCloud makes sure everything appears on your Mac, too.
