APPLE IMAC MC309B/A DESKTOP COMPUTER, INTEL CORE I5, 2.5GHZ, 4GB
The iMac MC309B/A is an all-in-one that’s one of a kind. This 21.5-inch model features a Full HD (1920x1080p) LED-backlit display for remarkable brightness and efficiency. Movies, TV shows, websites, and photos all look stunning and is backed up with a powerful Quad-Core processor and a wide variety of connectivity options.
A 2.5GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 processor allows easy web surfing, video chatting and making home movies – the latter of which is supported by the built-in slot-loading DVD burner which can handle DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW media. A super fast ATI Radeon HD 6750M graphics card with 512MB of memory effortlessly brings the most complex and fast moving games to life.
Four USB, one FireWire and a lightning fast thunderbolt port ensure enough connectivity for any external devices you may wish to attach including compatible digital camcorders, cameras and portable music devices as well. The thunderbolt port features 10-Gbps data channels for data transfers up to 20 times the speed of USB 2.0 so the time in saving work, moving documents from one machine to another and loading files will be greatly reduced.
Get more of your friends in the picture with crisp, widescreen HD video. The new FaceTime HD camera lets you make FaceTime video calls in 720p resolution. The picture is so clear, it’ll look and feel almost like you’re in the same room. Make HD calls from one new iMac to another or to a new MacBook Pro. You can even make video calls to other Intel-based Mac computers, iPad 2, iPhone 4, or the latest iPod touch.
A 500GB hard drive will enable you to store all of your videos, presentations, music and movies in the one place. An SDXC card slot also makes its quick-and-easy to transfer your files from your camera onto your iMac.
The iMac also arrives with iLife’ 11, a suite of easy-to-use applications. Enhance, organise and share your photos via iPhoto. Edit your home movies with drag-and-drop simplicity in iMovie and create original music in GarageBand.
