Sit down in front of the new iMac and something incredible happens: The world around you seems to disappear, and you lose yourself in the big, beautiful display. To create an experience this immersive, Apple pushed every limit, rethought every detail, and advanced iMac in the most astonishing ways.

Now you're closer to the action.

The new iMac display is not set behind the cover glass - it's right up against it. The LCD itself is 5 mm thinner than before, and Apple used an advanced process called full lamination to eliminate a 2-mm gap between the LCD and the glass, something that has never been done on a display this large. Although it may not seem like much, those few millimeters are enough to make images look as if they're leaping off the glass.

75 percent less reflection.

Full lamination has a second major benefit: It eliminates the reflection of light off the LCD panel and off the back of the display's cover glass. But Apple also figured out how to reduce reflection off the front of the glass without compromising color quality. Instead of applying an antireflective coating to the glass in a conventional way, Apple adapted a process used on smaller surfaces like camera lenses and fighter pilots' helmets. It's called plasma deposition, and it involves coating the glass with layers of silicon dioxide and niobium pentoxide so precise and so thin they're measured in atoms. The result: an astounding 75 percent reduction in reflectivity - and vibrant, accurate colors.

Individually calibrated for true-to-life color.

None of these innovations would matter much if the iMac display didn't deliver vivid, true-to-life color. Which is why Apple put every single display through an exacting color-calibration process using three state-of-the-art spectroradiometers: one to measure gamma, one to measure white point, and one to check the work of the other two. This equipment is tuned to meet color standards recognized around the world for precision and accuracy.

Innovations you can see.

You won't want anything to distract you from what you're viewing on these big, beautiful 21.5- and 27-inch displays. And nothing will, thanks to a new display design that reduces reflection by 75 percent. In addition, because the LCD now sits right up against the glass, your content seems to leap off the screen.

IPS technology and LED backlighting.

The gorgeous iMac display looks great from any seat in the house. A technology called in-plane switching (IPS) gives you a bright picture with excellent color from nearly any angle. And LED backlighting offers instant-on, uniform brightness with no waiting. So you're always ready to share that vacation slideshow with the family.

Vivid, true-to-life color. Every time.

Everything you see on the big, glossy display - from skin tones and dark shadows to bright blue skies and green fields - is rich and vibrant. And the colors are more true to life, too. That's because every iMac display is individually color-calibrated using state-of-the-art spectroradiometers to match color standards recognized around the world.

Powered by third-generation Intel Core processors, the new iMac is the fastest yet. Every model in the lineup comes standard with a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, starting at 2.7GHz and topping out at 3.2GHz. You can also configure your iMac with an even more powerful Intel Core i7 processor, up to 3.4GHz.

Across the line, the new iMac features advanced NVIDIA GeForce graphics processors built on the Kepler architecture, delivering up to 60 percent greater performance for graphics-intensive tasks. You'll see more frames per second in 3D games, and you can edit HD home videos with more speed and responsiveness than ever before.

Up to a 3TB hard drive.

Go ahead and take all the photos, buy all the music, and shoot all the video you want. A 1TB hard drive comes standard on the new iMac, with the option to upgrade to a massive 3TB drive - which is 50 percent more storage than ever before offered on iMac.

Up to 768GB of flash storage.

For maximum performance, you can configure a 27-inch iMac with 768GB of flash storage instead of a traditional hard drive. Flash storage delivers up to three times the performance of a traditional driv3 - speed you'll notice when you start up your iMac, launch an app, or browse your photo library.

Introducing Fusion Drive.

The new iMac introduces a breakthrough storage option called Fusion Drive, which combines a high-capacity hard drive with high-performance flash storage. Fusion Drive automatically and intelligently manages your data so that frequently used apps, documents, photos, and other files stay on the faster flash storage, while infrequently used items move to the hard drive. You'll enjoy shorter boot times, and as the system learns how you work, you'll experience faster application launches and quicker file access.

Thunderbolt

Ultrafast and ultraflexible, the tiny Thunderbolt port offers unprecedented transfer speeds and incredibly versatile expansion capabilities. Connect high-performance peripherals such as external drives, cameras, audio and video capture devices - even Mini DisplayPort displays for more screen real estate. All iMac models include two Thunderbolt ports, so you can create the ultimate do-anything desktop.

USB 3

Bring on your printer, digital camera, mobile phone, and external hard drive. Every iMac comes with four USB 3 ports - with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2 - so you'll have plenty of peripheral possibilities, including your iPhone or iPod, printer, or Apple USB SuperDrive.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

The latest 802.11n wireless technology in iMac makes it effortless to connect to a Wi-Fi network. Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology is also built in, so you can use your favorite wireless accessories - such as the Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Mouse - right out of the box.

Higher-fidelity sound and a larger soundstage.

Even though the iMac enclosure is thinner than ever, the new built-in speakers deliver higher-fidelity sound than before. So when you're listening to that new album, watching the latest flick, or playing your favorite action game, you'll get immersive sound and a surprisingly wide soundstage.

Dual mics. Be heard loud and clear.

iMac has two built-in microphones that work together to home in on your voice and filter out the sounds around you. That means more accuracy when you're using Dictation and better clarity during FaceTime video calls.

FaceTime HD camera for high-resolution video calls.

Get everyone in the picture with crisp, widescreen HD video. The built-in 720p FaceTime HD camera lets you make video calls that are so clear, it seems like everyone's in the same room. Make FaceTime calls from your iMac to any FaceTime-enabled Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Mouse or Magic Trackpad?

Choose your perfect cord-free setup. Magic Mouse - which comes standard with iMac - lets you perform simple gestures across its smooth, seamless top shell. Scroll in any direction with one finger, swipe through web pages and photos with two, and click and double-click anywhere. To take advantage of all the Multi-Touch gestures that make OS X so easy and intuitive to use, there is also the Magic Trackpad option. Designed with a touch-friendly all-glass surface, it's the largest Multi-Touch trackpad made by Apple. So there's plenty of room for scrolling, swiping, pinching, rotating, and then some.

Software

iMac comes loaded with the iLife suite of apps: iPhoto for organizing, editing, and sharing your photos; iMovie for creating Hollywood-style movies at home; and GarageBand for making great music. You also get apps for sending email, managing your schedule, and automatically backing up your Mac. There's even an app for shopping for new apps at the Mac App Store.

iCloud

iCloud stores your content and lets you access your music, photos, calendars, contacts, documents, and more from whatever device you're on. So if you take a picture with your iPhone or make changes to your meeting schedule on your iPad, iCloud makes sure everything appears on your Mac, too.
