Its hafnium-infused circuitry--which reduces electrical current leakage in transistors--helps to reducepower consumption while delivering. powerful processing speeds. This 3.06 GHz Core 2 Duo processor is aided by a1066 front-side bus speed and a super-sized 6 MB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and alarger L2 cache can help speed up your systems performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM, and afaster front-side bus will deliver better overall performance.)The Intel Core 2 Duos 128-bit SSE3 vector engine handles 128-bit computations in a single clock cycle, acceleratingdata manipulation by simultaneously applying a single instruction to multiple data. And its two execution cores are
designed to share resources and conserve power, helping it to achieve higher levels of performance since it uses fewerwatts.Hard Drive and MemoryThe humungous 1 TB Serial-ATA (SATA) hard drive (7200 RPM) quickens the pace with a higher speed transfer ofdata--akin to FireWire and USB 2.0. The 4 GB of DDR3 RAM (two SO-DIMMs of 2 GB) have an industry leading 1066 MHzspeed, and the RAM capacity can be increased to 8 GB.Graphics and VideoThe 24-inch widescreen TFT active-matrix LCD offers a resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels. It has a brightness rating of385 cd/m2 (candela per square meter), a contrast ratio of 750:1, and a viewing angle of 160 degrees (both horizontaland vertical). Offering 512 MB of discrete DDR3 SDRAM video memory, the NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 is ideal for 3Dgraphics-intensive games or pro applications like Aperture and Motion.This iMac also enables you to connect a second display in either extended desktop mode or video mirroring mode. TheMini DisplayPort port offers support for DVI, dual-link DVI, and VGA video connections via an optional adapter.Wired and Wireless ConnectivityThe iMac gives you plenty of room to grow, accommodating as many as six peripherals at a time thanks to its four USB2.0 ports and the two USB 2.0 ports on the Apple Keyboard.

The iMac uses an advanced powermanagement system leveraged from the technology that makes the most of battery life in Apples MacBook family. Toreduce energy consumption, the iMac hard drive spins down automatically when inactive, and it also decides whichprocessor--CPU or GPU--is best suited to perform a task efficiently. That means when iMac is idle, its using as littlepower as possible.Apple engineers have worked hard to eliminate many of the toxins that are a common part of desktop computer
manufacturing, such as choosing arsenic-free display glass for iMac. They have also removed brominated flameretardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) from circuit boards, internal cables, connectors, insulators, adhesives,and more. And the entire iMac computer is integrated into an enclosure made from a single, solid piece of recyclablealuminum, while the display is made of recyclable glass.The Mac mini meets the stringent low power requirements set by the EPA, giving it ENERGY STAR certification. Inaddition, Mac mini meets the latest efficiency requirements of ENERGY STAR Version 5.0 Specification for Computersbefore its July 2009 effective date. It has also earned the highest rating of EPEAT Gold. The Electronic ProductEnvironmental Assessment Tool, or EPEAT, evaluates the environmental impact of a product based on how recyclable itis, how much energy it uses, and how its designed and manufactured.Pre-Loaded with Mac OS X Snow Leopard and iLife 09Every Mac comes with Mac OS X Snow Leopard, the worlds most advanced operating system, and iLife, Applesinnovative suite of applications for managing photos, making movies and creating and learning to play music.
