Product Specifications

From any view, iMac is impressive. But little compares to sitting in front of the glossy widescreen display framed in amazingly slim anodized aluminum. iMac instantly turns your workspace from a cluttered desktop into a brilliant display podium. Photos, movies, games, videos, and applications with palettes. Anything you see on the 24-inch glossy widescreen display will be a pixel-perfect experience. iMac features a flat-panel LCD screen with 1920-by-1200 resolution, giving you vivid colors and breathtaking high-definition clarity. And there's nothing quite like seeing your life's events on the big screen, thanks to the iLife '09 built into every iMac. Every iMac includes high-performance NVIDIA graphics standard. Now games run smoother, photos load faster, and pro applications have even more power. The NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 processor delivers the fastest graphics performance yet. This iMac comes with Apple keyboard with numeric keypad.
