The latest 21.5-inch iMac features the new Intel i5 quad core processor along with native resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. It also come with some fantastic features to give you signature Apple features, and includes an Apple wireless keyboard and a magic mouse which can be swapped with the magic track pad at no additional cost if purchased from the Apple Online Store.
The design philosophy of the iMac's 21.5" remains the same as it was a decade ago, which is its elegance and beauty with a top class performance. Its classic all-in-one design of flat-panel makes it clean and puts rest inside the beautifully crafted enclosure. The stunning LED backlighting supports millions of colours and pushes light through each pixel with remarkable brightness and efficiency. It has a fantastic 21.5-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen TFT display with support for millions of colours.
The new i5 quad-core processor is based on Intel’s Sandy Bridge micro architecture, which integrates the CPU, cache, and memory controller on one chip, allowing for fast data access over fewer buses. The same processor is nearly 24% faster than the older i3 dual core processors. The desktop also comes with a standard 4GB memory which is upgradeable to 8GB along with the new slot-loading, 8X SuperDrive that can burn dual-layer DVDs at 4X speeds, and a SDXD card slot for easy transfer of photos and videos from SD cards used in cameras and camcorders.
Multimedia Configuration and Connectivity
A brilliant new feature in the iMac is the new Face Time HD camera which allows you to make video calls to other Face Time clients in 720p resolution, a 16:9 aspect ratio and a much-improved low-light performance which is unprecedented. A new external connection called Thunderbolt can be used to attach Mini Display Port monitors to the machine as well. The highlight of this desktop is the AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics with 512MB of video memory which offers up to three times the performance offered by the previous generation graphic cards. The machine has a 500 gb harddisk that can be used by you to store and back up all of your data with ease.

Additional software includes Mail, Address Book, iCal, the Mac App Store, iTunes, Safari, Time Machine, FaceTime, Photo Booth, Mission Control, Launchpad, AirDrop, Resume, Auto Save, Versions, Quick Look, Spotlight, QuickTime, and more.
