Power on a Pedestal


Designed with a recyclable anodized aluminum frame and glass cover, the iMac is friendlier to the environment..


The new keyboard's ultrathin anodized aluminum enclosure features low-profile keys that provide a crisp, responsive feel.
With its anodized aluminum frame set upon a sleek pedestal, the new iMac instantly transforms your workspace from cluttered desktop to brilliant display podium. Because the iMac's housing is made from a single sheet of aluminum, you won't see any seams or screws except for a single compartment on the bottom that provides easy access to the memory slots. The glossy widescreen 20-inch glass display makes photos and movies come alive with rich color. And the built-in iSight camera and microphone are integrated so neatly you barely notice they're there. Aside from the design details, the iMac is also friendlier to the environment with highly recyclable and durable materials including scratch-resistant glass and professional grade aluminum. The power-efficient iMac also meets the stringent new Energy Star 4.0 requirements.

With its elegant anodized aluminum enclosure, the new Apple Keyboard looks equally at home in your living room or on your desk. Just connect it to the USB port on your iMac and start enjoying the crisp, responsive feel of its low-profile keys. The extended layout has a full complement of keys, including document navigation controls, a numeric keypad, and special function keys for Mac features such as brightness, volume, eject, play/pause, Expos®¶, and more. Two USB 2.0 ports provide high-speed connectivity for your iPod, Mighty Mouse, digital camera, and other USB-based electronic devices.

Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
Experience faster, more nimble application performance and improved energy efficiency with this 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo processor from Intel's 45nm Penryn lineup. The new hafnium-infused circuitry--which reduces electrical current leakage in transistors--helps to reduce power consumption while delivering. powerful processing speeds. This 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo processor is aided by a 1066 front-side bus speed and a super-sized 6 MB L2 cache--both top-of-the-line for Intel's Penryn processors. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM, and a faster front-side bus will deliver better overall performance.)

The Intel Core 2 Duo's 128-bit SSE3 vector engine handles 128-bit computations in a single clock cycle, accelerating data manipulation by simultaneously applying a single instruction to multiple data. And its two execution cores are designed to share resources and conserve power, helping it to achieve higher levels of performance since it uses fewer watts.

Hard Drive and Memory
The 250 GB Serial-ATA (SATA) hard drive (7200 RPM) quickens the pace with a higher speed transfer of data--akin to FireWire and USB 2.0. The 1 GB of PC6400 DDR2 RAM (one SO-DIMM) has an industry-leading 800 MHz speed, and the RAM capacity can be increased to 4 GB.

Graphics and Video
The 20-inch widescreen TFT active-matrix LCD offers a resolution of 1680 by 1050 pixels. It has a brightness rating of 290 cd/m2 (candela per square meter), a contrast ratio of 800:1, and a viewing angle of 160 degrees (both horizontal and vertical). An ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT graphics processor powers the iMac with 128 MB of dedicated GDDR3 memory. It features some of the most advanced graphics technology available and delivers new levels of visual realism and a huge texture fill rate for smooth surfaces and complex character details. GDDR3 (Graphics Double Data Rate, version 3) is a graphics card-specific memory technology that's better able to deliver fluid frame rates for even the most advanced games and applications.

This iMac also enables you to connect a second display in either extended desktop mode or video mirroring mode. The mini-DVI port connects to DVI displays, VGA monitors and projectors, and S-video and composite devices using the appropriate adapter (sold separately).

Wired and Wireless Connectivity


You get a full complement of ports on the back of the iMac, including three USB 2.0 and two flavors of Firewire--400 and 800.
The iMac gives you plenty of room to grow, accommodating as many as five peripherals at a time thanks to its three USB 2.0 ports and the two USB 2.0 ports on the Apple Keyboard. It also includes two powered FireWire ports--one FireWire 400 and one FireWire 800 (one of the fastest peripheral standards available)--enabling you to quickly transfer content from digital video cameras, hard drives, and other high-speed devices.

Share files around your house with built-in 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet as well as the next-generation high-speed wireless 802.11n technology, which is integrated into the latest Apple Airport Extreme Base Station. The iMac is also Wi-Fi Certified to work with base stations and routers that use industry-standard 802.11a, 802.11b, or 802.11g wireless technologies.

The integrated Bluetooth wireless connectivity--version 2.1 + Enhanced Data Rate (EDR)--allows you to use a wireless keyboard or mouse, and synchronize peripherals such as cell phones and PDAs. Enjoy high-quality sound on almost any speaker system with double-duty analog/digital audio. Record digital and analog sources through audio line in, perfect for your latest podcast in GarageBand.

SuperDrive
Integrated neatly into the iMac is a slot-loading SuperDrive that lets you play and burn your own CDs and DVDs--including double-layer DVDs. And there's no disc tray--just slide the disc right in. It offers the following speeds:

  • Writes DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL discs at up to 4x speed

Customer Reviews:

  • iMac 24
    This was my first foray into the Mac world. After over 20 years of using PCs, I am so glad I switched. The transition was so easy. Just plug in your external devices and start working. Its super fast and the screen is huge and sharp. Now I wonder why I waited so long to switch to Mac. I'm totally sold on Macs....more info
  • Another Great product from apple
    although I didn't expect the new 20 inc imac would be as great as the 24" one ,but to my surprise the screen is really great and performance is wonderful.
    I recommend the imac to powerful users as well as normal users , the mac experience is brilliant ....more info
  • AWESOME!
    This is my third iMac, each time it just gets better. I started in 1997 with the original bondi blue 13 inch monitor, 4GB iMac and loved it. Next was a 17 inch G4, loved it. That one lasted about 4 years and unfortunately it failed and was not worth reparing. That led me to this new G5 24 inch 320 GB 2.8 GHz iMAc, what a beauty. From the new keyboard and mouse with a scrolling ball to the incredible 24 inch monitor and all the inner workings, and of course all the Apple programs included and OSX, this is one fantastic machine. Extremely user friendly, even my computer-phobic wife can navigate through the programs with ease, and to watch Lost on the internet in full screen mode...dude it is better than watching it on my TV set. I highly recommend this computer. Also by buying it from Amazon I saved $100 from Apple's suggested retail price and any other site or store as well.
    One last thing the new iLife '09 didn't ship with it but Apple sent me the upgrade for $9.95, a $79.00 value. Lots of improvements within that suite too, the new iMovie is much easier to use than the previous version....more info
  • Awesome
    Ir's a Mac! I use it with Windows though (unfortunately not even Vista) for work. I use an iMac with Mac OS at home and wanted the clean look of the iMac at the office. No regrets....more info
  • My first foray into Apple
    I just bought this IMac last week because my old PC crashed. I would have bought another PC loaded up with 8 gigs ram, 1+terra hard drive, super 22" LG monitor and more, for less than I paid for this IMac if it wasn't for security concerns. The IMac monitor is subpar, there is only the one slot dvd/cd drive so you won't be able to run a mini. I do like the keyboard. But running the darn thing is a simple pleasure, and I guess that's what Mac is all about. So, three stars and the jury's still out....more info
  • Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!
    when i made the decision to buy the apple iMac i had already ordered a new windows computer from new egg, i canceled my order from new egg and I'm sure glad i did, it is way more stable and works perfect with my Cubase audio recording software. i searched all over the Internet and Amazon was by far the best price.
    Go amazon.
    tracy...more info
  • wonderful computer
    This is my second mac computer. I am so happy with the first one, that I bought this newer version that allows me to work with the most recent software there is. It's a very fast, silent, beautiful, relaible computer.

    Almost three years ago I bought another Imac, the Power PC 5 (a G5). It works very well. That time I made the trasnsition from pc to mac, and I never went back!! The use of a mac is so more logical. Yes, they are usually much more expensive, but they're worth every dollar you spent on them. It's very unusual that a Mac computer would crash, there are virtually no viruses that may attact them, they are easy to set-up....more info
  • Fantastic Machine
    The Apple iMac (24" screen) is a fantastic machine...it just works. I bought this machine one month ago and it has not crashed one time. It is stable, easy-to-use and runs fast and smoothly.

    For users accustomed to other operating systems/machines, it is easy to learn this iMac. Apple offers free (and useful) Mac training videos/walkthroughs for many Mac-related topics...these videos were quite helpful for me as I came up to speed on the Mac OS X platform.

    Like many other Apple products, this iMac works well right out of the box. Highly recommended....more info
  • What a computer should be!
    In my attempt to stimulate the economy during these times of woe's and want's I decided it was time to upgrade my computer. A novice at best, just a user for sure, I took the advice of a buddy and decided an Imac was for me. Absolutely the best purchase I have ever made! My job dictates that I work on a PC. I can't wait to get home and get on my Mac! The O.S. is flawless, atleast as far as I can determine. Keep in mind I'm a user, not a software designer. Iphoto 09 is incredible! A simpleton as myself was able to create a slideshow of a raucous gig I went to (Dropkick Murphy's) some time ago and then export to Itunes to share with the ones I went with. It brought tears to her eyes based on the memories alone. Fun! Fun! Fun!

    For all the reviews that I read the major complaint is the monitor. Too much glare.......Blah! Blah! Blah! Yeah, it has a glare when all the windows are open, and lights are on, and you really want to look for it. For all the professionals that need a matte screen this might not be for you. For all of us others this is it! Trust me. You will not regret it. All it took was the simple purchase of a Nano and some sound advice from a friend and I was sold. Just wait till it is delivered. Impressive how it is boxed! Quality down to the packaging! The keyboard even rocks............I could go on and on.............

    Thank you Apple! Thank you Amazon! ...more info
  • This Amazing Machine
    I bought this computer after I saw my friend get it. It is an amazing computer. If you think it is too expensive, you are wrong. When you think about it, it comes with every thing you need. Also, it is an all-in-one, so no need to buy a monitor AND computer. The price makes sense....more info
  • Apple I Mac
    Being an Apple user for years I already knew this product will be an excellent choice. My only complaint is that had I known that the price will be discounted a few weeks later, I would have waited to purchase it and save a couple of hundred dollars....more info
  • Had to sell it because of NO INTERNET connection.
    If you are planning to buy a new iMac you NEED to be AWARE of a known issue of constantly losing your wireless internet connection. Use google or any mac forum and type iMac internet lose connection drops and READ. Apple is not giving any solution yet even tough there are thousands of customers with the same problem. After a "battle" of more than six months trying to find a solution for my iMac I finally sold my iMac yesterday. I bought a new PC and my internet connection is flying and always ready. Apple WILL lose other customers like me. ...more info
  • imac
    Fantastic product, been away from Apple for a while. Set up was easy and monitor is terrific....more info

  • Switched from a PC and couldn't be happier!
    I have had my new iMac for about a week now and love it. I had been a frustrated windows user for 10 years and endured more than my fair share of system crashes , viral attacks and just slow , sluggish and undependable performance. That all seems to be changed now. It was a bit difficult at first to learn how to transfer my files over , but some online help at the Apple website did the trick for me.
    This thing just seems to work. Sometimes not in the way an EX Windows user might expect, but they DO work. This thing is very fast, very sleek and elegant. I keep wondering why I waited so long to make the switch.
    As for the display, it is fine for my purposes which do not include pro graphics applications. It is not the best LCD I have ever seen, but neither is it the worst. For under 1200 dollars I really think it was money well spent and my new iMac will last me many years.
    If you have never had a Mac and don't mind a slight learning curve, you probably won't regret buying this thing. I am very happy I did. Oh yeah, did I mention I am 79 years old? This old dog can STILL learn a few new tricks! I am just happy I finally have a computer that actually WORKS each time I power it up! WOO HOO!...more info
  • Excellent
    This product far surpasses my expectations but then again I did switch from PC and said goodbye to Windows. I purchased this product to use for photo editing and I must say that it blazes through PS actions and works great with Capture NX2 as well. I upgraded the memory to 4Gigs instead of the 1 gig that came with it and I'm very happy with it's performance....more info
  • imac computer
    I love my apple computers they are easy to use and they never have any problems....more info
  • Great Computer lousy support
    Been a Mac guy for 8 years, love the computers hate the Apple Support.
    Spent two hours on the phone with incredibly snooty techs. In the end I was told "it's not designed to share it's ethernet connection over it's Airport card". Uh- been doing it for 4 years with the old imac and emac. His analogy- Just because you can drive your Lamborghini on a dirt road doesn't mean it was designed to do it". That's great.... Got hung up too by Apple Support
    Unfortunately for Mr. Techie what I'm trying to accomplish is documented exactly on Apples own web support. Basically I've got a bad Airport card or a software conflict and Apple Support is of no help. If you've got an issue, you're on your own.
    Spending 10 years in IT support for windows I know it's not an easy job, but their attitudes along with their lack of knowledge about their own products disgust me.
    Great computer, terrible support....more info
  • Best Computer Ever
    I'm a recent switcher from XP for fear of Vista. This computer is blazing fast and amazing. I have the iWork Suite, which far beats Microsoft Office. Best home computer available: Apple iMac.

    ...more info
  • Great!
    I started out as a Mac User, and switched to a PC about 5 years ago. It was the worst mistake I ever made. I didn't realize how much I missed my Mac until I bought this one. I love it. I am still learning a lot, since there have been so many improvements. I saved $100.00 plus the tax, and got free shipping through Amazon.I received my shipment in less than the quoted time. I am very happy with my purchase and with Amazon. My only regret (and it's not Amazon's fault) is that a new model came out about 2 weeks after I bought mine, and it is $200.00 cheaper...Just my luck.....more info
  • imac 24" 2.8GHZ intel processor 2008 model
    I also chose the imac 2008 instead of the 2009 base model. I do not like computers with integrated graphics, this was the main reason I got this one, but at a lower price. The higher end imac with discrete graphics it too expensive for me, almost $2,000.00 with taxes!

    My computer was delivered by UPs on schedule, in a brown box. Inside the cardboard box was the white box with the image of the imac. The imac appears to be new, it had all the sealed plastic etc. with no damages.

    The screen is beautiful and huge.Saves a lot of space compared to my old Power Mac G4 + 17inch Apple CRT studio display.It is like I just have an LCD on my desk! The 2 complaints I have is that around the very edges of the screen it looks like a shadow, and it is very SHARP.

    I changed the desktop image to a solid color and i noticed a slightly darker color around the edges, but only a minor issue. I think Apple knows of this, because the top bar on the desktop image has a shadow effect. I think this is to mask the problem that the LCD has.

    Also, the screen is bright but not as bright as some have complained about. It is VERY sharp though, when viewing black text against a white background, it does bother my eyes a bit. Putting on a light or lowering the brightness helps.

    It is not as glossy and I thought either. I thought I would see my face in the screen all the time. I see myself only when there is a pure black background in images and movies, and when the computer is off. Turning off the light gets rid of my reflection.

    Inside the box is the Apple iMac, power cord, keyboard, mouse, remote, Installation CDs, the NEW iLife 2009, cleaning cloth, and the everything Mac booklet.

    I like the keyboard, it is nice and compact even though this is the not the newer smaller one.

    The mouse is ok, It looks just like my old Apple pro mouse, but white, and clicks like it too. When you press it the whole top of the mouse goes down. I like the scroll button on it. Looks like a little dot and you just move your finger over it with ease, but I am having problems left and right clicking with the Apple mighty mouse, it is supposed to be touch sensitive? No left and right buttons on top, just scroll button.There are sort of buttons on the sides, they work.

    I still like my optical kensington mouse better, it has faster tracking and is more responsive than the Mighty mouse.
    edit: I found out that in system preferences, that is where you set the left click on the mighty mouse now I can left click.

    Overall the computer seems good and It is so quiet, I do hear the fans but they are so low compared to the G4 fan monster. I can actually hear myself think! ...more info
  • Nice item, but next time I won't buy a computer from Amazon
    While I'm dazzled with this Imac, I'm not happy with the way Amazon presented this item in the search as the latest model. Granted I should have researched on my part, but when you buying something as a gift you really don't think about it.

    Make sure you buy an office suite when purchasing this product. Text Edit is really weak and nearly useless for word processing. ...more info
