Apple Updates iMac Line

Apple updated its all-in-one iMac line with the latest Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors and powerful new graphics. The new iMac line comes with dual-core processor speeds up to 3.6 GHz, quad-core speeds up to 2.93 GHz and discrete graphics including the ATI Radeon HD 5750. The new Magic Trackpad, with a glass and aluminum design, gives iMac users the same Multi-Touch gestures that Mac notebook customers have, and is available separately for Rs 3,070 (inc VAT).

The processors feature an integrated memory controller to access the system memory directly, allowing the new iMac to take full advantage of its 1333 MHz memory. New discrete ATI Radeon HD processors deliver graphics for 3D games, creative software and technical applications. iMac displays feature IPS technology to deliver images across a 178 degree viewing angle. The SD card slot on the iMac now supports the SDXC format to handle high-capacity storage cards. Customers of the 27-inch iMac have the option to order a 256GB solid state drive (SSD) as a primary or secondary drive. The iMac SSD supports up to 215 MB/s data transfer rates for faster startup and application launch times.

Every iMac comes with Apple’s Magic Mouse and customers can also order the new Magic Trackpad as an option. With its glass surface, the wireless Magic Trackpad enables users to scroll smoothly up and down a page with inertial scrolling, pinch to zoom in and out, rotate an image with their fingertips and swipe three fingers to flip through a collection of web pages or photos. The Magic Trackpad can be configured to support single button or two button commands and supports tap-to-click as well as a physical click.
