Product Details

Apple 27" iMac 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 Desktop Computer, Model Z0GF0003W

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
  • Wireless keyboard
    iMac banishes desktop clutter completely with a wireless keyboard to go with the wireless Magic Mouse. This low-profile keyboard takes up less desk space — 24 percent less — than larger keyboards. There’s no numeric keypad, so you can place your mouse comfortably next to the keyboard. And built-in Bluetooth means there are no cables to connect. Learn more about the Apple Wireless Keyboard that comes with iMac
  • 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 computer, large and bright screen with higher than high definition. Easy to set up and use. Keyboard and Mouse are hard to use. not very comfortable to type as well as very uncomfortable to hold and move around the mouse.

    Comments about Apple 27" iMac 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 Desktop Computer:

    You will be like a kid in a candy store when you first turn it on. I bought the i7 quad with 8 gigs of ram. They had it in stock and did not have to wait as long as if I went through apple. Since I am out of state I also did not have to pay taxes and pretty much got the extra 4 gigs for free considering if I went directly through apple. Came with the standard 1 year applecare with the option to buy into more. I also talked with a customer representative online and they were more than helpful. I wasnt sure about buying an Apple outside of Apple itself. If you are like me I hope this helps quell any fears of the unknown. It was a fast easy and great deal. [...]

            Comments about Apple 27" iMac 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 Desktop Computer:

            The core i7 processor is super-fast and efficient. The display is very sharp, has a very high contrast and is bright; probably the best feature of the iMac. Just about everything regarding the new 27 i7 iMac is amazing. 8GB of ram is nice, too. I can have fusion running flawlessly while working on many large apps at the same time.My only complaint would be the new magic mouse. I feel like I have to go out of my way to perform basic actions that a $10 logitech mouse is capable of, such as clicking the scroll wheel.

            Service and delivery comments:

            The delivery could have been quicker. Two days after I ordered the item, I saw that the status on my order read something like "processing". I had to call abt to figure out why (rather than them calling me). Apparently, Abt needed to verify that I was a legitimate user of my credit card. I understand that this is a step they take to protect me and to minimize their liability, but no other online retailer does that. Because of this, my order arrived 6 days later (UPS closed 4 days in a row for thanksgiving). In any regard, the computer got here in good shape, and everything was as promised.

                  This computer is worth all the hype, everything runs smoothly and beautifully, and feels like it has enough over-head power to run great for years to come.

                  Call of duty MW2 runs on bootcamp at full resolution, max graphics, and max audio flawlessly... and that's running on the 32-bit version of vista!
