The new release of the much anticipated 27″ imac has all of us mac lovers drooling. I spent the other morning perusing apple.com, reviewing the sleek design of the all-in-one imac. The 27″ display dominates all the way to the edge. No distractions, no mimics. Everything you see is intentional, not a mm of waste. This large work surface allows you to be ‘in’ your work. Earlier this year I upgraded to a 28″ (external) monitor with my MBP. I absolutely love it. It features the LED backlighting, which allows for a bright and vibrant workspace, as well as IPS technology (in-plane switching), which make for some awesome color and display performance at any angle.
The all-in-one seamless design includes the new multi-touch mouse (wireless) and sleek wireless keyboard, which is now standard. Compared to past versions, the new imac is more powerful, has more ram, better processors and exceeds Energy star ratings and was manufactured with fewer toxic substances. Apple is offering 21.5″ and 27″ displays (16×9 HD). They say its more than a redesign, its the best piece they have designed. The cool thing about Apple, compared to some of the other brands out there, is they design and manufacture the hardware and the software. This allows their creative teams to think and include all aspects of the process. Of course the imac comes will all things mac, Snow Leopard, iLife ’09, 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (or more), 4GB of Ram, 1TB 7200-rpm ATA hard drive (27″), HD 4850 graphics processor, built in iSight Camera, AirPort and 4 usb ports, two 17 Watt amplifiers..ok i’ll stop drooling.
Will you upgrade?
