Performance and design. Taken right to the edge.
Over Detailed Design
This iMac was created with as much amazing technological innovation as the amazing look it has. Through a painstaking process of designing and engineering everything about iMac from the inside out, the result of an advanced, elegant all-in-one computer that looks as much a work of art as it is state of the art was come about.
Phenomenal Lengths and Widths
With an iMac in front of you, the world around you seems to disappear as you lose yourself to the big and beautiful display. By pushing every limit, considering every detail, and advancing the iMac in amazing ways, an immersive experience has been created.
The first iMac was a revolution: An all-in-one computer that put everything — display, processor, graphics, storage, memory, and more — inside one simple, stylish enclosure. This iMac has been improved beyond the even revolutionary iMacs before it and made to include a brilliant desktop display and filled with the latest high-performance technologies yet at 5 mm thinness.
Seamless Design With a 5mm Edge
Surmounting a challenge of joining the iMac seamlessly without foregoing the dream of a 5mm thin desk computer has become a huge success story for the iMac creation team. The enclosure is so thin, it is humanly impossible to weld the pieces using traditional methods, so a process called friction-stir welding used on airplane wings, rocket booster tanks, and other parts that simply must not fail was found and used after much research. It's commonly used on airplane wings, rocket booster tanks, and other parts that simply can't fail. This process uses a combination of intense friction-generated heat and pressure to intermix the molecules of the two aluminum surfaces — creating a seamless, precise, and superstrong join. You may not see it, but this iMac wouldn't be possible without it.
Warning: You May Get Too Engrossed With the Beautiful, Widescreen Display
Right Where The Action Is
Instead of being set behind the cover glass, the iMac display is set right up against it. By using an advanced process called full lamination, gap between the LCD panel and the glass is eliminated so that every image looks as if it is right with you in person.
Full lamination has a second major benefit, eliminating the reflection of light off the LCD panel and off the back of the display's cover glass. But an extra effort was added to reduce reflection off the front of the glass without compromising colour quality. Instead of applying an anti-reflective coating to the glass in a conventional way, a process used on smaller surfaces like camera lenses and on the helmets of fighter pilots was adapted; plasma deposition involves coating the glass with precise and thin layers of silicon dioxide and niobium pentoxide measured in atoms to give an astoundingly low reflection with vibrant, accurate colours.
Individually Calibrated for True-to-Life Colour
The real reason all the innovations on this iMac makes sense is because every display was put through and exacting colour-calibration process using state-of-the-art spectroradiometers, an equipment that is tuned to meet colour standards recognized around the world for precision and accuracy, engineering the screen to deliver vivid and true-to-life colours.
Highly Recyclable and Energy Efficient for an iMac of The Environment
Efficiency of Energy
iMac is designed to be more energy efficient than ever so it uses just 0.9 watt of electricity when in sleep mode, a beyond far cry from what is obtainable from the previous iMac model.
Friendly with the Environment
iMac is made of materials like already recycled aluminium and glass so has a higher likelihood of being recycled or used and it is made free of many harmful toxins, including mercury, arsenic, BFRs, and PVC.
Designed with Responsibility in Mind
Going the extra mile for the iMac shows up all through, even in the set rules and standards of EPA, which has earned it the 6.1 qualification on ENERGY STAR Version; the highest rating of Gold from EPEAT, which evaluates the environmental impact of a product based on how recyclable it is, how much energy it uses, and how it's designed and manufactured.
Brilliant Front and Back of Screen
Looking at the gorgeous widescreen iMac display, will be so engrossing that nothing will qualify for a distraction because it is designed with reduction in reflection and the LCD is right up against the display glass to help you see your photos, games, movies and everything else in vivid, lifelike detail.
An Amazing View, Amazing Handling
The iMac comes with a combination of big and bold display, fourth-generation Intel Core processors, powerful graphics, an advanced Fusion Drive option and much more making it more than what you deserve in a desktop.
Phenomenal Huge, LED-Backlit Widescreen Display that Goes Easy on the Eyes
No distractions can be allowed while you watch on this bold and beautiful display and actually nothing will since it is made to reduce reflection plus the 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 keeping you always ready to share that vacation slideshow with the family.
Vivid, True-to-Life Colour. Every Time
Everything you see on the big, glossy display whether its a skin tone, a dark shadow or bright blue skies and green fields, will come alive in a rich and vibrant view with colors that are more true to life as well because every iMac display is individually color-calibrated using state-of-the-art spectroradiometers to match color standards recognized around the world.
