Apple just released two new iMacs in the Philippines, one with a 21.5-inch display and another with a bigger 27-inch display.

Hardware

As basic hardware features, the new iMacs carry Intel’s latest Core i5 and Core i7 quad-core processors and are equipped with LED-backlit displays, faster graphics processors, Thunderbolt I/O peripherals and Facetime HD camera.

 

The 21.5-inch iMac features 1920 x 1080 resolution while the 27-inch iMac has a resolution of 2560 x 1440.  The screen has a 1000:1 contrast ratio and a 16:9 aspect ratio.   The iMac display uses in-plane switching or IPS which lets you view the display from the side.

Powered by Intel Core i5 and Core i7 quad-core processors, the new iMac is expected to be fast and is said to be 70 percent faster than the previous generation iMac.  The new iMacs use AMD Radeon HD graphics processors.  You can opt for a 16GB of DDR3 memory for a balzing fast computing performance.

There is also a Thunderbolt port which features two 10-Gbps data channels for data transfer that’s up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0.  The Thunderbolt port offers expansion capabilities for peripherals since you can daisy-chain as many as six devices plus a display.

The new iMac’s FaceTime HD camera lets you make FaceTime video calls in 720p resolution. You can make HD calls from an iMac to a MacBook or to other Intel-based Mac computers, and to an iPad 2, an iPhone 4 or an iPod touch.

Software

For software, the news iMacs ship with a Mac OS X operating system and applications like Mac App Store, Facetime, iMovie and Garage Band.

The Mac App Store makes your life easier as you simply download and install softwares and applications.   There is no need for you to buy the CD installer.
