iMac is amazingly thin, yet it offers fourth-generation Intel Core processors, incredible graphics, the advanced Fusion Drive and flash storage options, and ultra-fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi. So it’s powerful enough for a design studio, production house or science lab; and beautiful enough for any room in your home.

Ex-Display Apple iMac 21.5" 8GB 2.8GHz Processor | ME086B/A


Core i5 Processor

The fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor — based on the latest Haswell architecture — is standard on iMac. It’s available at a clock speed of up to 3.2GHz. Since OS X is designed to take advantage of each core, iMac captures every bit of performance from the processor. OS X also supports Hyper-Threading in the Core i7, allowing two threads to run simultaneously on each core — giving you eight virtual cores of processing power.

Turbo Boost 2.0

Say you’re using a processor-intensive application like Final Cut Pro X that benefits from extra power. Turbo Boost 2.0 automatically increases the speed of the active cores, so the Core i5, for example, can offer up to 3.6GHz. And by shifting core frequency in small increments, Turbo Boost allows the processor to manage performance without sacrificing efficiency. All this takes place behind the scenes, so your work — and play — goes smoother and faster.

High Velocity Graphics

iMac graphics are powerful across the board. Choose from fast integrated Intel HD Graphics 5000, even faster Intel Iris Pro Graphics or super-fast NVIDIA graphics. Whichever you select, you’ll experience 3D games, high-resolution photo and video editors, and other graphics-intensive apps with the smoothest animation and speediest responsiveness yet.

Get the most out of your Mac with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M with 1GB of video memory on the 27-inch iMac. And if you go with the 2.7GHz iMac, it comes with integrated Intel Iris Pro Graphics, which delivers discrete graphics-level performance.

More Than Just A Display, It’s A Vision

Accuracy. Brightness. Clarity. Regardless of how you measure the quality of a display, Retina is in a class by itself. The pixel density is so high that you won’t detect a single one while using iMac. Text is so sharp, you’ll feel like you’re reading email and documents on a printed page. And with a new, wider colour gamut, the Retina display is able to deliver even more available colours — 25 per cent more. So every photo and video you see appears even more true to life.

Innovation From Edge To Cutting Edge

An incredible amount of engineering was required to bring the Retina display to the iMac family. Witness a design that’s just 5mm at its edge — yet entirely capable of making everything around you fade into the distance. This ensures that nothing gets between you and your favourite content. Seamless and beautiful, iMac with Retina display is an elegant addition to your workspace, representing a depth of technology at the height of design.
