This version of the 27-inch iMac (model MD095LL/A) features a 2.9 GHz Intel Core i5 quad-core processor as well as an NVIDIA GeForce GT 660M graphics processor with 512 MB of video memory (see full specifications below). It also comes with the iLife software suite, which includes the latest versions of iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand.

Key Features

Completely Re-Engineered

Redesigned from the inside out, the iMac’s aluminum and glass enclosure has up to 40 percent less volume than its predecessor and an edge that measures just 5mm thin. It also features a completely reengineered display that reduces reflection by 75 percent while maintaining brilliant color and contrast. In the new design, the cover glass is fully laminated to the LCD and an anti-reflective coating is applied using a high-precision plasma deposition process.

 

thndr Revolutionary Thunderbolt Technology

Developed by Intel with collaboration from Apple, high-speed Thunderbolt I/O (input/output) technology delivers an amazing 10 gigabits per second of transfer speeds in both directions. Built into the iMac, the Thunderbolt port allows you to connect to new Thunderbolt-compatible peripherals as well as existing USB and FireWire peripherals using simple adapters. You’ll be able to move data up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and more than 12 times faster than with FireWire 800, and you can daisy-chain up to six high-speed devices without using a hub. Thunderbolt also supports DisplayPort for high resolution displays and works with existing adapters for HDMI, DVI, and VGA displays.

USB 3

With USB 3 built into the iMac, you can connect your external hard drive and transfer large files in seconds instead of minutes. Every iMac comes with four USB 3 ports–with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2–and you can connect all your USB-compatible devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod, or digital camera.

The iMac is more energy efficient than any previous iMac, using up to 50 percent less energy in the idle state with the display on. And its hardware components work hand in hand with the operating system to conserve even more power. The environmentally friendly iMac design is free of many harmful toxins, including mercury, arsenic, BFRs, and PVC. It’s also made from materials such as aluminum and glass, which are more likely to be recycled and reused.

Clutter-Free Desktop

You’ll be able to cut the cord with the included Wireless Keyboard and Magic Mouse, both of which connect to the iMac using Bluetooth wireless technology. Additionally, the Magic Mouse features a seamless Multi-Touch surface that enables you to use the same intuitive gestures used on the MacBook trackpad to easily scroll through long documents or swipe to move forward or backward through a collection of web pages or photos.

And with the FaceTime HD camera placed above the display in the iMac’s thin aluminum and glass design, you’ll be able to make video calls in HD 720p resolution to friends and family on another iMac or MacBook. Additionally, you’ll be able to connect to those using a FaceTime-enabled iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.

Visually stunning and powerful I ordered my 27 inch iMac, BTO 2.9 i5 w/ 1tb Fusion Drive, directly from Apple on 11/30/12 and received it on 12/17/12. Although I have only had the iMac for a short amount of time I am extremely impressed. It opens up photoshop CS6 so fast that I cannot read the credits and boots up in about 16 seconds, thanks to the Fusion drive. The 27 inch iMac also allows the ram to be upgraded very easily and I personally upgraded the ram to 24gb. As expected the design is visually stunning and thin, due to no built in optical drive. I did buy a external Apple SuperDrive and as a result I believe that the lack of a built in optical drive was worth it. The one draw back, due to the georgeous design, is learning how to stop staring at the iMac from the side. The iMac is also very quiet and does not even get warm to the touch. The new LCD screen is also a pleasure to look at. Reflections are no longer a problem and the image looks stunning.FYI: On the 27 inch iMac…

This is AMAZING!! My 5 1/2 year old Dell PC finally bit the dust, and since my family all have Macs and rave about them, I thought I would take the plunge. Wow, am I glad I did! This thing is amazing. Gorgeous, sleek, fast, and did I say gorgeous? I bought the 27″ 2.9GHz for $200 less because it was the model Amazon had in stock. I was a little afraid it would not be powerful enough for my needs, but it turns out it exceeds them. I am using it for amateur photography needs, and just basic home use and internet use. I bought an external “Apple SuperDrive” at $75, a pair of 8GB memory cards “Crucial 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL11 SODIMM 204-Pin 1.35V/1.5V Memory Modules For Mac CT2C8G3S160BM” at $85, and a “Seagate Backup Plus 3 TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive for Mac” to back up my photos at $137. I also bought the $169 Apple warranty. Though I have been told Macs have a rep for not going bad, if they do, an Apple Tech told me the cheapest repair is $800. So, I got the…

My First Mac Been using Windows all my life since XP. I have only owned my 27″ iMac for a short time but I am thoroughly impressed with the computing experience Apple has put forth. Changing over to a different operating system has been a bit of an adjustment, small things like copy and paste require slightly different ways of execution but OSX has been easy and intuitive enough to navigate straight out the box.This iMac’s screen is huge which allows a lot of space for multi-tasking. It is also stunningly beautiful. I know the gamma has been factory set so that colors are rendered true to life. Glare has been cut helping to focus on the task at hand. Opening programs happens quickly and silently. I have only heard the fan once, that during the Apple test which I conducted on my own. The only other time I’ve experienced completely silent computing was on my laptop. I really appreciate this feature.Web surfing using Safari with the trackpad is a great experience that Windows…
