Product Description

All-In-One Computers, Apple, IMac 20 20" All-in-One Desktop Computer, MA876LL/A

Redefining Apple's signature all-in-one desktop PC, the newly redesigned iMac now sports a sleek, professional aluminum enclosure that's joined precisely to a 20-inch glass cover to create a virtually seamless front surface. It also features new ultra-thin aluminum Apple Keyboard--with an extended layout and dedicated keys for Mac features such as brightness, volume, eject, play/pause, and Exposé--as well as the wired Mighty Mouse. The iMac is preloaded with Apple's latest suite of digital media applications--iLife '08--and also comes with the Apple Remote and Front Row media display software, which enables you to easily play your music, enjoy photo slideshows, and watch DVDs, iMovies, music videos and television shows from across the room.

It's powered by a 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor from the newest "Santa Rosa" chips, which offer a top-of-the-line 800 MHz front-side bus speed and a huge 4 MB L2 cache. This 20-inch iMac also features a 250 GB hard drive, 1 GB of RAM (with a 4 GB maximum capacity), 8x SuperDrive for burning movies to DVD and music mixes to CD, integrated 802.11n wireless LAN, Gigabit Ethernet wired networking, Bluetooth connectivity, ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT video card with 128 MB dedicated memory, and the Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard operating system.

The iMac, Transformed

Redesigned with a recyclable anodized aluminum frame and glass cover, the iMac is friendlier to the environment.

The new keyboard's ultrathin anodized aluminum enclosure features low-profile keys that provide a crisp, responsive feel.
With its anodized aluminum frame and glass cover, the new iMac instantly transforms your workspace from cluttered desktop to brilliant display podium. 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 glossy widescreen 20-inch display makes photos and movies come alive with rich color. And the built-in iSight camera and microphone are integrated so neatly you barely notice they're there. Aside from the design details, the iMac is also friendlier to the environment with highly recyclable and durable materials including scratch-resistant glass and professional grade aluminum. The power-efficient iMac also meets the stringent new Energy Star 4.0 requirements.

With its elegant anodized aluminum enclosure, the new Apple Keyboard looks equally at home in your living room or on your desk. Just connect it to the USB port on your iMac and start enjoying the crisp, responsive feel of its low-profile keys. The extended layout has a full complement of keys, including document navigation controls, a numeric keypad, and special function keys for Mac features such as brightness, volume, eject, play/pause, Exposé, and more. Two USB 2.0 ports provide high-speed connectivity for your iPod, Mighty Mouse, digital camera, and other USB-based electronic devices.

Preinstalled with iLife '08
Every iMac includes iLife '08, the latest version of Apple's award-winning suite of digital media applications, with major upgrades to iPhoto, iDVD, iWeb, and GarageBand and a completely reinvented iMovie. iPhoto '08 now automatically organizes photo libraries into Events that let you more easily manage your growing photo collections, and iMovie '08 can import video from the latest AVCHD, HDV and DV camcorders, as well as from digital cameras, and displays your entire video library whether it's stored on internal or external drives. Both iPhoto and iMovie integrate seamlessly with the new .Mac Web Gallery, Apple's new service for .Mac members to instantly create and host websites for their photos and videos.

The pre-installed iLife '08 software suite includes a completely redesigned iMovie, which makes it even easier to share your videos on the Internet.
iLife '08 also features iWeb '08, with live web widgets such as Google Maps that let you create even more dynamic websites, and GarageBand '08, with its new Magic GarageBand feature that makes it fun and easy for both musicians and non-musicians to create great sounding songs.

Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
It's powered by the 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 processor from the newest "Santa Rosa" chips, which offer a top-of-the-line 800 MHz front-side bus speed and 4 MB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM, and a faster front-side bus will deliver better overall performance.) With such a substantial L2 cache, data instructions can be kept close to the two processor cores, greatly increasing performance and allowing the entire system to work more efficiently.

The Intel Core 2 Duo's 128-bit SSE3 vector engine handles 128-bit computations in a single clock cycle, accelerating data manipulation by simultaneously applying a single instruction to multiple data. And its two execution cores are designed to share resources and conserve power, helping it to achieve higher levels of performance since it uses fewer watts.

Graphics and Video
The 20-inch widescreen TFT active-matrix LCD offers a resolution of 1680 by 1050 pixels--36 percent more than the previous 17-inch iMac. It has a brightness rating of 290 nits, a contrast ratio of 800:1, and a viewing angle of 160 degrees (both horizontal and vertical). An ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT graphics processor powers the iMac with 128 MB of dedicated GDDR3 memory. It features some of the most advanced graphics technology available and delivers new levels of visual realism and a huge texture fill rate for smooth surfaces and complex character details. GDDR3 (Graphics Double Data Rate, version 3) is a graphics card-specific memory technology that's better able to deliver fluid frame rates for even the most advanced games and applications.

This iMac also enables you to connect a second display in either extended desktop mode or video mirroring mode. The mini-DVI port connects to DVI displays, VGA monitors and projectors, and S-video and composite devices using the appropriate adapter (sold separately).

Wired and Wireless Connectivity

You get a full complement of ports on the back of the iMac, including three USB 2.0 and two flavors of FireWire--400 and 800.
The iMac gives you plenty of room to grow, accommodating as many as five peripherals at a time thanks to its three USB 2.0 ports and the two USB 2.0 ports on the Apple Keyboard. It also includes two powered FireWire ports--one FireWire 400 and one FireWire 800 (one of the fastest peripheral standards available)--enabling you to quickly transfer content from digital video cameras, hard drives, and other high-speed devices.

Share files around your house with built-in 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet as well as the next-generation high-speed wireless 802.11n technology, which is integrated into the latest Apple Airport Extreme Base Station. The iMac is also Wi-Fi Certified to work with base stations and routers that use industry-standard 802.11a, 802.11b, or 802.11g wireless technologies.

The integrated Bluetooth wireless connectivity--version 2.0 + Enhanced Data Rate (EDR)--allows you to use a wireless keyboard or mouse, and synchronize peripherals such as cell phones and PDAs. Enjoy high-quality sound on almost any speaker system with double-duty analog/digital audio. Record digital and analog sources through audio line in, perfect for your latest podcast in GarageBand.

Integrated neatly into the iMac is a slot-loading SuperDrive that lets you play and burn your own CDs and DVDs--including double-layer DVDs. And there's no disc tray--just slide the disc right in. It offers the following speeds:

  • Writes DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL discs at up to 4x speed
  • Writes DVD-R and DVD+R discs at up to 8x speed

This is my second imac since Jan of 2007. No my first did not break down,it's still going strong. I bought this one for myself and let my lady friend have my first one. We were both so impressed with the iMac that I wanted her to have one also.
At first I wasn't sure about the switch from my pc,but the more I use the imac the more I like it. I still have a few things to learn about it. imacs just are more stable than any pc I have had.
I have switched to a wireless Logitech keyboard and mouse,just can't get the hang of the mac mouse.
The only problem i've had so far is finding as much software as pc's have.How ever if you want to install windows on your imac it can run both operating systems. The programs that came installed on my imac work excellent and are very well advanced for photography(which is my main hobby) It is so nice to not have all those wires hanging all over the desk and I think it is the best looking monitor on the market.
If you are in doubt about switching to a Mac from a pc,take my word for it very easy. If I did it almost any one can. I am retired and have very little computer knowledge.

EDIT: Please note that I wrote this review very soon after these models came out to market. Some parts of this review are "outdated"..


I have upgraded from 20'' iMac (previous generation) and this is simply stunning in every way. I personally have not found any problems with it yet and my experience has been phenomenal. There are few little things to consider when buying this Mac.

First of all, the verison I have comes with Intel Core 2 Extreme (I ordered the system from Apple). If you ARE planning on buying the version with Core 2 Extreme please know that it is a DUO chipset not QUAD. It has 2 cores, not 4. The difference in speed is only notable in certain applications such as games and advanced 3D apps.

This iMac is beautiful visually. The "skin" really suits the system well. The black Apple logo in front and on the back make it look more stylish than it is. The iSight camera is barely visible (which is a good thing for some folks). The computer is packaged in virtually the same box as previous iMacs except with different picture on the box.

The new keyboard I do not use.. I prefer my Logitech diNovo Edge(tm) which fits beautifully with this iMac. The mighty mouse is great, I have the wireless version and it tracks very smoothly. I don't have any cons with that.

The screen.. wow, 24 inches! It's big, probably bigger than many people need but.. boy.. is this a work of art! Watching a movie on this amazing display is an experience I haven't had before. The only con I found here is that you wouldn't want to put this in a very bright place or near a window. It is a glossy screen and while it adds style to the Mac it will turn the computer into a mirror if the environment you are working in is too bright.

I'm new to Apple and am switching over from PCs. I recently got reeled in with their iPhone and their iPod, and then now this iMac - it really surprised me. I had to have one. So I bought this 24" 2.4 Ghz and bought an additional 1 GB of ram before leaving the apple store.

I installed the extra ram (very easy) before I even powered up the computer for the first time. This is quite simply the coolest computer I've ever owned. The sleek, ergonomic design really simplifies your computing.

I no longer have to worry about accidentally ramming my knee into the PC tower under my desk. No more fumbling under my desk on my knees with usb and connection cables. Everything is accessible on your desktop (literally!). The screen is bright and glossy, and the keyboard is so low to the desktop, it literally changes your whole typing experience.

I am running Windows XP Pro on the Parallels Virtual Machine on this iMac so that I can have access to my Windows-based applications as well. (Word of caution: If you're planning to do this, you must supply the full, genuine copy of XP yourself; it does not come bundled with the iMac. Also you will have to run antivirus and anti-spyware software plus a firewall for the Windows part of your configuration just as you normally do in Windows).

So with the ability to run Windows, you can get the best of both worlds. So there's really no reason at all for anyone not to buy this iMac; on o,ne hand, I'm kicking myself for not switching sooner. But on the other hand, this iMac - especially with its new sleek design and its ability to run Windows - is easily the best iMac they've put out to date.

This must be my eighth desktop Mac since 1991, my fourth iMac since 1998, and it's definitely my first new Mac in a good two and a half years. And although I'm certainly not sorry I shelled out the money for this beauty, I'm not as blown away by its performance as I'd imagined I would be.

My previous Mac, now semi-retired to a bedroom, was a 20-inch G5, 1.8 Ghz, 2 Mb of RAM. That one was a huge step up from its predecessor. Somehow, I don't feel that way this time around.

Even though my new 24'' 2.4 Ghz Intel Mac is outfitted with the maximum 4GB of RAM, speed and productivity gains seem incremental. Not that it's a snail. It's just...not that impressive, as upgrades go. At best, I notice relatively hefty speed improvements where I don't care that much -- importing CDs into iTunes is easily 40, 50% quicker -- and very little difference where it actually matters to me, Photoshop performance included.

Migrating my data from the old Mac to the new one via a Firewire cable was painfully slow this time around -- something like 27 hours(!). After that, I had lots of problems with passwords not getting stored properly in Keychain Access, necessitating multiple calls to Apple's help line. Oh, and I actually lost all the data in ecto, my blog program. 1,400-plus posts mysteriously vanished. I have a backup, but still...

Compounding the problems was the fact that I upgraded to Photoshop CS3 (from CS2) the same weekend I started using my new Mac. I'm sorry to report a string of Photoshop crashes -- and whenever Photoshop goes down, in my case, it takes all the other applications with it.
