Apple iMac summer 2010 (21.5 inch)

Desktops
I'm rich brown senior editor for cnet.com. You're gonna take a look at Apple's new 21 point five inch iMac this is the -- at night. Pretty much visually identical to the iMac that Apple can out last fall -- the same aluminum enclosure as well as the edge to edge glass of the bright display. LED backlit those glossy we -- -- -- line defense of that but Apple's kind of made its choice there. On the back it has all the same ports as we had before -- you get mini display port. Can't the USB -- firewire ethernet as well audience acts. On the side it'll close slot loading dvd drive and it also has a new SD card slot the previous -- actually SD card as well just announced ports. ST XE cards though which all it to two terabytes Elliot of time mobile data. The system also comes with a wireless keyboard and the magic mouse -- which we've seen before. Apple also introduced a new magic track pad is a touch -- looks very much like that -- devices. They'll certainly for seven dollars site makes that was some of the reviews of the system the next few weeks. So -- -- so the new iMac -- it looks the same insides completely different. With the new CPU memory as well as the new graphics chip the system is significantly faster than the older model. To get specific fitness abuse actually the same clock speed of the old model that came with the eleven and in time. Both come with three point 06 gigahertz processors. Build -- -- is a core two duo -- the new -- -- core -- three CPU. There's some new features under the hood of that -- it can actually -- Quad Core chip under certain conditions -- -- natively it's only dual core CPU. For the ram it comes with slightly faster memory goes from 1066 megahertz ram -- left thirteen 33. That's a minor speed up that obviously you probably won't notice much difference except an aggregate all the other updates. -- the graphics chip goes from an integrated Nvidia GPU to a discrete ATI radeon HD 46 said. That's a lower end budget graphics card it's still -- -- to play. Most games that you'll find the real for the Mac anyway. A -- problem Call of -- 4 but all the steam titles that are available through. Bows download service put it just fine no problems at full resolution so that was pretty cool makes this. Sort of moral -- gaming PC as far as the Mac. Can be considered a gaming system it is definitely faster in the older iMac and in particular its multitasking. Ability is very much improved. Our main reservation comes of the system compared to windows PCs -- actually for similar price to have full blown. Quad Core CPUs for certain apps single apps they can use all four course. A native Quad Core chip is gonna be much faster than the iMac and some in the clock speeds or relatively the same. So that may be important for digital media editors and others who use apps that you know will use multiple -- if you course. -- -- have some reservations -- the system isn't home entertainment we're starting to see windows on ones with. -- -- -- -- connect game console and cable boxes. You -- on Blu-ray drive and windows based PCs that cost -- the last on the back and Apple still firmly an -- Blu-ray camp. That's so this is still the best looking all wanna around and if Apple may be as an embrace the full lot of versatility of one on one. It at least has a nice fast system with a beautiful looking screen and it's gonna look great -- -- you put. So overall we can recommend -- iMac for general productivity Italy might be careful about certain apps depending on what you use -- day today. And we also it's a pretty decent Mac gaming system although there are still -- -- gaming options out there are generally for -- -- Armored brown this is Apple's brand new eleven nine point one -- -- time.
