Specs / Features
The iMac "Core 2 Duo" 3.06 21.5-Inch Aluminum (Late 2009) features a 3.06 GHz Intel "Core 2 Duo" processor (E7600), with two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip, a 3 MB shared level 2 cache, a 1066 MHz system bus, 4 GB of RAM (1066 MHz PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM), a 500 GB or 1 TB (7200 RPM) hard drive, a vertically-mounted slot-loading DVD±R DL "SuperDrive", and NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics with 256 MB of shared memory or ATI Radeon HD 4670 graphics with 256 MB of dedicated GDDR3 memory.
It also has a built-in iSight video camera and built-in stereo speakers underneath the 21.5" glossy 16:9 LED-backlit TFT Active Matrix LCD (1920x1080 native) display "with IPS technology".
Connectivity includes four USB 2.0 ports, a Firewire "800" port, built-in AirPort Extreme, and Gigabit Ethernet, as well as a Mini DisplayPort, which supports an external display up to 30" (2560x1600).
The "Late 2009" iMac line looks similar to earlier Aluminum iMac models but have an "edge-to-edge" glass design and a "seamless all aluminum enclosure" (previous aluminum models have a modest aluminum border around the display and a plastic back).
Externally, the displays are enhanced with LED-backlighting and "IPS technology" for improved quality, and internally, each has four RAM slots supporting up to 16 GB of RAM (rather than two slots and 8 GB of RAM for earlier models). All "Late 2009" models also include an SD Card slot and redesigned speakers that promise "louder, clearer sound with better bass response and less distortion".
The "Late 2009" iMac models ship with a compact aluminum Apple Wireless Keyboard and a new multi-touch "Magic Mouse" where the "entire top is a seamless multi-touch surface" that allows one to "navigate using intuitive finger gestures". A new aluminum remote is offered for an additional US$19 as well.
