From the Manufacturer
Dual Core Performance
The world's best-designed and easiest-to-use desktop just got faster. Now with the Intel Core Duo processor with two execution cores on a single chip--iMac brings a new generation of power to the amazing things it can do.
Twice the Horsepower
The Intel Core Duo processor and a whole new architecture give iMac literally twice the horsepower it had previously.
Video and Photos Made Easy
The iMac sports an iSight camera built right in almost invisibly above the display. It works with iChat AV for incredibly easy video conferencing. You can even record a video right at your desk using iMovie HD. With Photo Booth software, you can snap pictures--with the iMac's display acting like a flashbulb. Once you've taken your picture, Photo Booth lets you add fun effects before sharing it over e-mail or saving it as your buddy icon.

The Center of Your Digital Life
The iMac includes Mac OS X Tiger and the iLife '06 suite of applications, making it perfectly tuned to serve as the center of your digital life. Create photo albums, watch or make a movie, manage your e-mail and much more--right out of the box.
Put on a Show
Pick up the included Apple Remote, find a comfortable chair and treat yourself--or a crowd--to a show. The Front Row interface lets you control your music, movies and photos from across the room.
From hard drive to stereo speakers to SuperDrive and more, all the components of the iMac are enclosed within the widescreen flat-panel display. It's thin, clean, and strikingly gorgeous.
The iMac lets you jump right in to the wireless world with two advanced technologies built in. AirPort Extreme lets you connect to any industry-standard, 802.11g-compatible wireless network. And Bluetooth 2.0+EDR offers fast connections to peripherals such as cell phones, mice and keyboards, PDAs, and more.
