Product Description

Seeing is believing.
iMac has everything you're looking for in a computer. Brains and beauty come together in this amazingly slim, desire invoking, all-in-one design. With iMac, your workplace turns from cluttered desktop to brilliant podium, instantly.

New from the outside in.
iMac sets new standards for elegance and power. It packs a complete, high-performance computer into its all-in-one design. With its anodized aluminum frame and glass cover, it’s striking to behold. The glossy widescreen display — available in 20- and 24-inch sizes — makes photos and movies come alive with rich color. The use of recyclable glass and aluminum makes iMac friendlier to the environment, too.

Nothing peripheral about it.
Completely redesigned, the included Apple Keyboard perfectly complements your iMac. Its ultrathin anodized aluminum enclosure features low-profile keys that provide a crisp, responsive feel. The keyboard includes special function keys for one-touch control of Mac features, and two USB 2.0 ports for high-speed connectivity to your iPod, Mighty Mouse, digital camera, and other devices.

Details, details.
With iMac, details make all the difference. For example, because it’s made from a single sheet of aluminum, you won’t see any seams or screws except for a single compartment on the bottom that provides easy access to the memory slots. The built-in iSight camera and microphone are integrated so neatly you barely notice they’re there — until you need them for a video chat.

Power is a beautiful thing
As you might suspect, design doesn’t supersede performance. The new iMac is more powerful than ever, with a faster processor, next-generation graphics, and larger hard drives. And it’s loaded with everything you need to make use of that power, including a built-in iSight camera, Wi-Fi, and SuperDrive.

Intel Core 2 Duo processor
All iMac models feature advanced dual-core Intel processors along with other improvements that pump up the performance.

Built-in wireless
Banish the clutter. The latest 802.11 Wi-Fi networking and Bluetooth technologies come standard with every iMac.

Built-in iSight camera
The high-quality camera is so neatly integrated, you’ll hardly notice it’s there.

Connections and ports
iMac has all the ports you need for your USB, FireWire 400, and FireWire 800 devices.

Glossy widescreen display
Your photos, movies, and games will come to life with richer, more vivid colors. Choose from 20- and 24-inch widescreen displays.

Advanced graphics
New ATI Radeon HD graphics deliver a stunning visual environment with more vivid, lifelike images.

More storage and memory
Now you have more room for your video and photo collections. And iMac now supports up to 4GB of memory.

SuperDrive
The slot-loading SuperDrive lets you play and burn your own CDs and DVDs.

Awesome out of the box. All-in-Wonderful.
More than ever before, iMac allows you to live a digital life. Loaded with iLife, the new iMac makes it easy to turn your photos, movies, and music into blogs, podcasts, books, and calendars. All the other essentials are built in as well, including an iSight camera, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Just plug it in, turn it on, and you’re ready to create something great.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
