Starting at Rs 65,630, the new Apple iMac All-in-one Desktop line is the fastest ever with dual-core processor speeds up to 3.6 GHz, quad-core speeds up to 2.93 GHz and discrete graphics including the powerful ATI Radeon HD 5750.

The new Magic Trackpad, with a smooth glass and aluminum design, gives iMac users the same intuitive Multi-Touch gestures that Mac notebook customers have come to love and is available separately for Rs 3,070.

“We took the world’s best all-in-one and made it even better,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “With the latest processors, high-performance graphics and signature aluminium and glass design, customers are going to love the latest iMac.”

Apple iMac All-in-one Desktop now comes with dual-core Intel Core i3 and Core i5, and quad-core Core i5 and Core i7 processors setting a new benchmark for iMac performance. These processors feature an integrated memory controller to access the system memory directly, allowing the new iMac to take full advantage of its faster 1333 MHz memory.

New discrete ATI Radeon HD processors in iMac All-in-one Desktop deliver incredibly smooth, crisp graphics for the most demanding 3D games, creative software and technical applications. iMac displays feature IPS technology to deliver a brilliant image across a wide 178 degree viewing angle.

The SD card slot on the Apple iMac All-in-one Desktop now supports the SDXC format to handle the latest high-capacity storage cards and customers of the 27-inch iMac have the option to order a 256GB solid state drive (SSD) as a primary or secondary drive. The iMac SSD supports up to 215 MB/s data transfer rates for faster startup and application launch times.

Customers can also order the new Apple Magic Trackpad as an option that brings the intuitive Multi-Touch gestures of Mac notebook trackpads to the desktop. With its glass surface, the wireless Magic Trackpad enables users to scroll smoothly up and down a page with inertial scrolling, pinch to zoom in and out, rotate an image with their fingertips and swipe three fingers to flip through a collection of web pages or photos.

The Magic Trackpad can be configured to support single button or two button commands and supports tap-to-click as well as a physical click. Magic Trackpad is available separately for Rs 3,070.

The Apple iMac All-in-one Desktop comes with Mac OS X Snow Leopard, and iLife, Apple’s innovative suite of applications for managing photos, making movies and creating and learning to play music. Apple iLife features iPhoto, with breakthrough ways to organise and manage your photos by who appears in them and where they were taken; iMovie with powerful easy-to-use features such as Precision Editor, video stabilisation and advanced drag and drop; and GarageBand which offers a whole new way to help you learn to play piano and guitar.
