iMac Gets Turbocharged

With the new introduction of Apple products that were speculated to arrive recently, Apple has introduced the new and improved iMac. The latest rendition of the flagship and 1984 industry-setting desktop Mac lineage receives an increase in brainpower with a new line of CPU standards and the storage to go with it. Apple delivers this all in the same simple, yet gorgeous design of the last generation’s body.

Apple has decided to retire the Core 2s jersey and draft in Intels new pride and joy, the Core i series. Every iMac from this day forward comes standard with Intels Core i3 dual-core processors that packs more power using less of it. The Core i series is more energy efficient that the previous praised Core 2 models. With that, Intel brings Turbo Boost to the Core i lineup, allowing the chips to exceed the speed that they are originally clocked at. The i3s pack a punch when it comes to speed ranging from 3.06 to 3.2GHz. Users can also choose the Core i5 dual-core models that clock in at snappy 3.6GHz. With the 27-inch iMac models, Apple is providing the option to double the processing cores with the i5 and i7 offerings. The quad-core i5s offer customers quad-core calculating power with the speed to boot. i5s with four cores clock in at 2.8GHz. The i7 comes zooming in at 2.93GHz on a four-core processor. All Core i players support Hyper-Threading.

With the addition of the new CPU line up, Apple has made more room for data to stay and has sped up how fast your machine stores and retrieves it. Along with the ability to hold up to two terabytes of ATA data storage, Apple gives the option for you to add an additional 256GB of SSD (Solid State Storage). Compared to the the conventional hard disk, SSD stores everything much faster because everything is stored on one layer (like the iPhone, iPod and iPads flash storage), preventing the need for a moving head or parts, and by default, drastically decreasing the potential for data corruption due to shock.

Apple has also nixed the NVIDIA graphics cards and made AMD/ATI graphics the standard for the iMac. ATIs Radeon HD 4670 GPU with 256MB of GDDR3 memory comes standard on the new iMac. As an option, the machines can utilize the Radeon HD 5670 with 512MB of GDDR3 memory.

Apples has definitely beefed up the iMac lineup for the Mac OS X software to tap into even more power create an enjoyable, smooth experience. The new line is priced the same as the previous starting with the 21.5-inch model starting at $1199 and offer personal configurations at

    There have been some rumors going vabout that Apple has pulled AirPrint from the final release of iOS 4.2. Apparently, a rumor came about yesterday claiming that Apple has axed the feature from the iOS 4.2 final release because of some unforeseen circumstances. Distraught by the speculated exemption of the features, a customer decided to shoot Steve Jobs a letter about it to get a further understanding of the matter. Steve replied saying that AirPrint has not been cut from the final version of the anticipated software update.

    However, it’s like bamboo and because it brings luck, we keep calling it lucky
    bamboo. Since different plants have different fertilizer needs, discover the requirements of most your plants before you
    provide them extra nutrients.
    Yet because there are so many different species, it’s difficult to discuss
    bamboo plant care rules that apply to all types. My family likes to acquire together around the weekends and do a family
    members dinner when achievable.
