New 2012 Apple iMac 21.5 inch & 27 inch - Unveiled, Features, Overview, Price, & Configurations
SUBSCRIBE for Latest Apple Products - http //www.youtube.com/HonestTechGuys New 2012 Apple iMac 21.5 inch & 27 inch - Unveiled, Features, Overview, Price, & Configurations Apple is unveiling a new version of its iMac desktop computer that's one-fifth the thickness of the old model around the edges. At 5 millimeters around the edges, the new iMac is thinner than most stand-alone computer monitors. It bulges in the back, however. Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller did not say how much. The new model achieves its severe thinness in part by eliminating the optical disc drive. Apple has been leaving those drives out of its most recent laptop models as well. An iMac model with a 21.5-inch screen will start shipping in November for $1,299 and up, Schiller said. A 27-inch version will start at $1,799. Apple has refreshed its notebook line-up with a 13-inch Macbook Pro with Retina display priced at $1,699. The device runs on OSX Mountain Lion and it is powered by a 2.5GHz Intel dual-core i5 and i7 'Ivy Bridge' processor, 8GB RAM and 128GB flash memory. Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, introduced the new laptop that weighs only 3.5 pounds, making it the lightest Apple notebook ever. The company has shaved off 20% waistline, making the 13-inch Macbook Pro 0.75-inch thick. The 13-inch Macbook Pro with Retina display uses IPS technology for a 178-degree wide viewing angle and features a 720p FaceTime camera, can play 1080p video at 2,560 x 1,600 resolution, has 29% better contrast ratio and 75% lower glare over its previous iteration. The new Macbook Pro also has improved stereo speakers, dual mics with better voice recognition, MagSafe 2, two Thunderbolts docks, SD card reader, HDMI output and two USB 3.0 slots and the company promises a 7 hours of battery life with 30-days of standby time. With the all new Power Nap feature, intoduced in OS X Mountain Lion, the device stays up-to-date even if it's on sleep mode. Power Nap automatically refreshes Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Reminders, and Photo Stream, and when the notebook is plugged in, downloads software updates and backs up your Mac using Time Machine. Pricing & availability The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is available for Rs 1,14,900 inclusive of VAT and with 256GB of flash storage starting at Rs1, 34,900 inclusive of VAT. The device will be available through Apple Authorized Resellers. ipad mini Apple also revisited the seventh generation of iMac all-in-one desktop computers and reduced the thickness of the 21 and 27-inch computers by 80% vis-a-vis existing models. Apple has removed the optical drive so that the monitor now measures 5mm at the thinnest point. For internal storage, Apple has used a flash drive of 128GB capacity and FusionDrive - a HDD alternate with capacity varying between 1 to 3TB. Users can also opt for optical drives for the two iMac desktop computers. The two desktop computers are powered by i5 or i7 processors, Nvidia Kepler graphics, and 32GB of RAM. These two AIOs also have 720p FaceTime HD camera, dual mics and dual speakers, four USB 3.0 ports and three Thunderbolt ports. The prices of the 21- and 27-inch iMacs are $1,299 and 1,799, respectively. The smaller AIO will be shipped in November, while its bigger sibling will hit the shelves in December. Apple has lifted the lid on the 2012 version of the iMac all-in-one PC, with a new slimmer design. The look of the 2012 iMac is jaw-dropping, featuring a super-thin display that's just 5mm thick at its edge. This is 80 percent thinner than the previous-generation model. The 2012 iMac comes in two sizes, a 27-inch model with 2,560 x 1,440 display and a 21.5-inch iMac with 1,920 x 1,080 display. Both use IPS displays like the new 13-inch MacBook Pro for superior viewing angles.
