Product Details

Apple 27" iMac 2.66GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 Desktop Computer, Model Z0GF0005F

Features:

  • LED backlighting. One bright idea
    Full brightness with no waiting. That’s the big advantage of the LED-backlit iMac display. Unlike most displays that take time to warm up before they reach maximum brightness, an LED-backlit display is instantly on and uniformly bright. LED backlighting also gives you greater control over screen brightness. So you can finely tune the iMac display to suit the ambient light in even the dimmest room
  • More pixels. Better picture
    The new iMac offers some prime pixel real estate. The 21.5-inch, 1920-by-1080 display has 17 percent more pixels than the previous 20-inch iMac. The 27-inch, 2560-by-1440 display has a whopping 78 percent more pixels than the 21.5-inch iMac. And a 1000:1 contrast ratio gives you more vibrant colors and blacker blacks. All that in a widescreen display with a 16:9 aspect ratio — the same as an HD TV
  • Stunning from every angle
    The new iMac display looks great from any seat in the house, thanks to a premium display technology called in-plane switching (IPS). IPS gives you a bright picture with excellent color consistency — even if you’re viewing the display from the side
  • Now available with quad-core power
    The 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac models offer fast Intel Core 2 Duo processors up to 3.33GHz. Quad-core power comes to the 27-inch iMac with a 2.66GHz Intel Core i5 processor or 2.8GHz Intel Core i7 processor. Four cores deliver up to 2x faster performance for just about everything you do: managing your photos, editing HD video, even playing graphics-intensive 3D games.¹ And since Mac OS X Snow Leopard is designed to take full advantage of Intel dual- and quad-core architectures, you get the fastest performance possible
  • Revved-up graphics
    Every iMac comes with high-performance graphics that make games run smoother, photos load faster, and pro applications work better. If you want even speedier graphics, choose an iMac with a more advanced ATI graphics processor
  • More memory and storage
    The new iMac has 4GB of 1066MHz DDR3 memory standard, with room in its four SO-DIMM slots for up to 16GB, so you can run more applications simultaneously. And with a Serial ATA hard drive up to 2TB,² feel free to load up on photos, videos, and music
  • Built-in Wi-Fi
    High-speed 802.11n wireless technology is built into iMac. And with Time Capsule or the AirPort Express Base Station, every computer in every room can wirelessly connect to iMac, the Internet, and each other.³ Over this network, everyone can print, surf the web, and play music on iTunes through your home stereo — wirelessly
  • Wireless Magic Mouse
    Forget the mouse as you know it. Every iMac comes with the wireless Magic Mouse: the world’s first Multi-Touch mouse. Use it once and you’ll wonder how you ever used anything else. There’s no scroll ball, no clunky wheel, no cord, and no visible button. Instead, Magic Mouse uses Multi-Touch technology to let you control everything with simple gestures. Give them a try and you’ll find that Magic Mouse changes the way you interact with your computer. Built-in software lets you configure Magic Mouse any way you want. Its smooth, seamless design is ambidextrous, and it supports two-button clicking — without buttons. Like magic
  • iSight camera
    Look closely: Hidden behind the glass display at the top of iMac is an iSight camera. Use it with iChat, and you can be anywhere without actually being there. Video chat with up to three of your friends, share a video with a colleague, or present to a client.4 Use iSight with Photo Booth for fun photo effects. And there’s no need to waste valuable primping time installing software or configuring the camera. Like everything Mac, iSight just works
  • Mini DisplayPort
    The Mini DisplayPort lets you connect an external display, including the Apple LED Cinema Display, to your iMac. On the 27-inch iMac, the same port offers input, too. So you can connect any external source that has DisplayPort output — including a MacBook or MacBook Pro — and use your iMac as a display
  • Wall mountable
    It’s easy to give your iMac a place of honor on the wall. The 27-inch iMac is compatible with the VESA Mount Adapter Kit for use with wall mounts and articulating arms
  • SD card slot
    Transfer your photos and videos to and from your iMac just as fast as you’re able to take them. The new iMac has an SD card slot built in. Just insert your camera’s memory card and import your photos to iPhoto. From there, it’s easy to organize your photos by the people in them, share them online, or create photo books
  • USB and FireWire
    Bring on your iPod, digital camera, mobile phone, and external hard drive. If it has a cable, iMac has a port for it. Four USB 2.0 ports and a FireWire 800 port give you plenty of peripheral possibilities

          Great home desktop computer. Unbelievably large 27" HD screen. Practically have to back up to not go blind. Litterally plug and start using after a few minutes of loading up.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Was hesitant about buying a computer and having it shipping but very well packaged by both ABT and Apple. Would buy electroncs over the web again.

          Comments about Apple 27" iMac 2.66GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 Desktop Computer:

          It will be a long time before PC makers catch up to what this 27 inch 1 TB 4 core iMac offers. It sits on the desk and within it's aluminum shell it holds just about everything you need in computing. Everything within, the devices, the chip, the board and disk work effortlessly together, blinding fast and trouble free. Imagine getting a big white box and within an hour having a secure operating system that can handle just about everything you can throw at it sitting on your desk and glowing like a nebula in the Hubble telescope. After connecting it to a new high speed internet router, the 27 inch iMac was soon displaying twenty open web pages, playing music loud enough to wake the neighbors, downloading torrrents of files from an FTP site halfway across the planet and connecting to an office Windows server to check work emails.

          I continue to be astounded by the freeway-like traffic the iMac handles without the slightest hesitation. The display rivals museum quality photographs. All those pixels refresh so fast and finely that I can work on this machine for hours without the eye burn I experience on lesser displays.

          This machine is a replacement for a vintage Windows 98 laptop. And a departure from half a lifetime struggling with the myths of Microsoft. the OS Snow Leopard system is more intuitive than anything else and will get you where you need to go with a few keystrokes. It integrates multiple functions in a way I've never seen. It makes good use of my precious time because it steps from application to application, window to window in split seconds. And it's not loaded with a Cosmopolitan magazine load of advertisements and manufacturers' junkware. This is a machine to bring back the wonder and fun of computing and it is my new best friend on the desktop.

          Although it's a real investment, consider it this way: the disk, memory, speed, processing power and display will remain ahead of competition for years, and probably beyond. I added up the list price of all the included components as if I were building a PC from scratch, discounted the sum by half and couldn't believe what I got in this package, at this price. If you just can't resist having a touchscreen, well it falls short. But with a screen this big, touch-screening could turn into a new Olympic event and like most aerobic exercises would get boring in a few weeks.

          When this sculptured aluminum shell with it's screen lit up with working windows sits on my desk, it looks like what it's worth: a semi-precious gem that does what I need it to do. The mouse is a pleasure to use and it's amazing how it controls the screen with little effort. Apple should amp up the pointer tracking for a mouse that commands 27 inches of pixel real estate. Double and triple sweeps to reach the far corners of the screen should not be required. I chose a wired numeric keypad and don't mind the white cord linking the pad to the machine, but the wider keypad gets in the way of the mouse sweeps sometimes when I need to move around the screen quickly.

          Good design means having all you need and little more. That explains the awards and commendations this package receives. It just about has everything in one awesome package. I know Apple are astute marketers and so there are a few things around the corner in the future that will make this iMac obsolete one day. Blue Ray capability, Touchscreen and extended networking. But for one power user who is migrating from the world of PC to a bright new view, this iMac takes care of everything I need with no sweat. It computes, it displays movies and TV better than my TV, it hooks up to my work world through Office for Mac and a MS terminal server connection and so far it has stayed rock-like safe as I surf foreign and domestic nets.

          I recall the rocky days for Apple corp and I believe they are going to become a serious threat to Microsoft one day because they think like the people who use their machines. Computing should be easy and fun, machines should be powerful and trouble free and anything you bring into your home should enrich your space and tell a good story about your sense of style. You can have all of that with a machine like the iMac.

          Service and delivery comments:

          When my UPS delivery friend brought the box to my door three days after I ordered the iMac from Abt, we both thought it was a mistake. Abt packed the white Apple box so generously, it looked like a washing machine had arrived. This whole purchase was planned so that I could migrate away from MS Windows, onto a broad band internet connection and into Mac all in one day. Abt made it happen. It only took one call to the ISP technical support to walk through the connection and the iMac was running silently at full 2.66 four core speed. Everything arrived in perfect condition.

          This purchase was partly through redeeming card holder points and partly through a steep discount offered by Abt. Sorry about that, Apple. It took just a few clicks and keystrokes to take care of things with Abt. But I'm an interactive buyer and I had to get the personal touch on this deal as well. I called Abt late on a Saturday afternoon and the Mac specialist confirmed the features of the machine, and recapped the purchase for me. I asked twice if this was tax free, shipping included to my home state because I could not believe those terms. But yes, that is how it went down and a few days later it all arrived. Abt knows what they are doing in this business and yet they also provide convincing hands-on customer support. I'll shop them hard for a deal on my next printer and anything else I need for the iMac.
