Tech Specs:G4 Processor:SuperDrive:Graphics:Wireless:Software

iMac Designed to be the digital centerpiece of your home and the fastest way to the Internet, the new iMac comes with even faster processors, faster memory, cinematic 3D graphics, high-speed USB 2.0 — and an architecture upgrade that gives the 15-inch iMac a whole new set of capabilities. Plus advanced communication features and wireless options.

The iMac dazzles with its brilliant 15-inch and 17-inch widescreen flat-panel displays that adjust their height or angle with just a touch. But what’s even more remarkable is the fact that its compact base packs powerful features like processor speeds up to 1.25GHz, extreme NVIDIA graphics, a DVD-burning SuperDrive, and advanced wireless options.

Inside story
15" and 17" iMac Inside the new 17-inch iMac, for instance, you get the 1.25GHz PowerPC G4 with Velocity Engine, 256MB of PC2700 (333MHz) Double Data Rate SDRAM main memory (expandable up to 1GB), NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra graphics with 64MB of DDR SDRAM, and an Ultra-ATA/100 80GB hard disk that dishes out data at 7200 rpm.

The 15-inch iMac features a 1GHz PowerPC G4 processor, Combo drive (DVD-ROM/CD-RW), and NVIDIA GeForce4 MX graphics with 32MB of DDR SDRAM. Apart from that, the 15-inch iMac features just about everything the 17-inch model comes with, including built-in 10/100BASE-T Ethernet and 56K V.92 modem, two FireWire 400 ports, three USB 2.0 ports, two USB 1.1 ports (on keyboard), VGA output port, S-video and composite video output, headphone jack, Apple speaker minijack and audio line in jack. You can also enjoy the freedom of wireless computing: both iMac models come AirPort Extreme-ready, and you can add an internal Bluetooth module as a build-to-order option.

iLife iLife. Suddenly, it all connects.
The iLife software application suite that come on your new iMac include iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie and iDVD. They let you do fun, creative things with your pictures, music and movies — and share them with family and friends — in ways that people who use PCs can only dream about. And whether you’re creating music CDs, publishing your digital pictures online, editing digital video, or burning your own DVDs, you can do all these things and more quite nicely without referring to a manual. It’s all part of the iLife experience.

SuperDrive The legendary SuperDrive
The iMac with SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW) lets you burn your own movies and photos on a DVD disc that plays in almost any standard DVD player. Even better, the SuperDrive burns DVDs at 4x speed. And, naturally, you can pop in your DVD movies and watch them in widescreen letterbox format on the brilliant LCD display of your iMac.

AirPort Extreme 54 Mbps AirPort Extreme
Say goodbye to being forced to set up your computer near a phone. Pop an AirPort Extreme Card into your iMac, and you’re ready for the freedom of wireless networking from anywhere in your home or dorm — up to 150 feet from an AirPort Extreme Base Station. And by the way, adding an AirPort Extreme Card is a snap, even for first-time computer users. Beneath the iMac’s base is an access cover held in place by four screws. Images printed under the access cover show you how additional memory and the AirPort Extreme Card fit in the base when properly installed. It’s that simple.

Bluetooth Sync with Bluetooth
Both iMac models can be custom-configured with an internal Bluetooth module to connect your digital devices wirelessly. Operating within a 30-foot radius, it enables wireless data transfers between a rapidly growing list of Bluetooth-enabled products. Using iSync, for instance, you can use Bluetooth to synchronize your personal information between your iMac, your mobile phone and your Palm OS-based handheld.

If you’re interested in getting Bluetooth capability for your iMac, the easiest way is to have the Bluetooth module built in at the time you order your system. If you decide after purchasing your system that you want Bluetooth capability, you can easily plug in an external D-Link USB Bluetooth Adapter.

Extreme graphics
NVIDIA geForce4 MX The iMac’s sizzling graphics processors kick Quartz Extreme and 3D games and graphics into high gear with hardware transform and lighting (T&L), per-pixel shading and drop-dead gorgeous effects at high resolutions. Both models deliver over a billion textured pixels per second. And the NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra delivers even more 3D graphics firepower with an advanced Live FX engine engineered to generate the most lifelike characters. And with Quartz Extreme, the graphics processors take over the transform and lighting calculation functions from the iMac’s CPU, freeing the PowerPC G4 processor to perform essential system tasks faster than ever before.

10.6-inch footprint Nifty space-saving design
Thanks to what’s inside its ultra-compact 10.6-inch base, the iMac is several leaps ahead of any other consumer desktop system out there — just like its revolutionary predecessor. So how did we pack so much power and functionality into such a small space? Credit a rigorous design approach that optimized every available bit of space and resulted in no wasted corners. Starting with a custom-designed circular logic board that fills the entire diameter of the base, we engineered enough space to fit in a full-height optical drive such as the SuperDrive. On top of the optical drive are a high-capacity 3.5-inch hard disk drive and even the power supply — a split design that tucks neatly into the top of the base.

Apple Pro Speakers Speakers of the house
Both iMac models come with Apple Pro Speakers that handle 14 watts of undistorted digital sound. And since the iMac also provides power to the speakers, you don’t need an additional power brick. The result? Reduced cable clutter. Both models feature an internal speaker, internal digital amplifier, Apple Pro Speaker jack, headphone jack, and an audio line-in jack that lets you use it as a sound editing studio. The bottom line is that you get to enjoy an incredible aural experience.

Mac OS X - Jaguar The power of X
The iMac comes with Mac OS X v10.2 “Jaguar,” Apple’s rock-solid operating system that’s as stable as only a UNIX-based system can be — and as easy-to-use as only a Macintosh can be. Today thousands of applications take full advantage of Mac OS X’s power and digital savvy. The first operating system designed for the 21st century, Mac OS X works with today’s most popular peripherals. (The iMac boots up in Mac OS X, but it also includes the Classic environment, which runs compatible Mac OS 9 software and is automatically turned on when you launch a Classic application.)

Neck Effortless control at your fingertips
The brilliant LCD flat screen — brighter, sharper and easier on your eyes than old-fashioned CRT displays — mounted on a super strong adjustable neck is just one of the many features you’ll love about the iMac. Instead of requiring your neck, shoulders and back to adjust to your computer, the display glides through the air, allowing you to effortlessly adjust its height, depth or angle with just a touch of your finger.

FireWire Built-in FireWire
Every iMac has two superfast FireWire 400 ports built-in, so you can easily connect to high-speed devices like the iPod, digital camcorders and high-speed disk drives.

USB Five USB ports
Three conveniently located USB 2.0 ports (plus two USB 1.1 ports on the keyboard) let you connect your iMac to hundreds of digital cameras, printers, scanners, joysticks and PDAs.

Just minutes to the Internet
The iMac is the quickest way to get on the Internet. It’s so easy to set up and use, you’ll be online and surfing the web in minutes, using the built-in 56K V.92 modem, 10/100BASE-T Ethernet port for cable or DSL modems, or optional AirPort Extreme Card to surf wirelessly. The Internet Setup Assistant appears the first time your iMac is powered on, and automatically configures your system for your Internet service provider (ISP). All you need is phone service — the iMac comes complete with everything else.

Apple Keyboard and Mouse
Optical mouse and full-size keyboard
The Apple Mouse uses a high-precision optical sensor for unparalleled accuracy. The 108-key Apple Keyboard features 15 full-size programmable function keys, with special keys to adjust audio and eject CDs or DVDs and a built-in two-port USB hub.

Compatible with Windows PCs
The iMac lets you share files, send and receive email and instant messages with PC users. And because the iMac has been designed to fit in to all network environments, you can use it to connect to wired and wireless Mac and PC networks. What’s more, you can run popular software applications such as Microsoft Office and seamlessly connect to hundreds of digital devices with plug and play ease of use.
