From the Manufacturer
Welcome to the Front Row
You've got the best seat in the house. The full-screen Front Row media experience--with its intuitive menus, large text and brilliant graphics--lets you browse the music, photos and videos on your iMac as easily as you browse music on your iPod. And the new Apple Remote lets you do your browsing from anywhere in the room. So gather your friends and dazzle them with a slideshow of your vacation pics, a home movie or a DVD. iMac G5 was born to entertain.
A built-in iSight video camera and Mighty Mouse come included with the iMac.
With iTunes, you're never more than a click away from the world's most popular source of music, audiobooks and podcasts. Now the digital revolution strikes again--you can also purchase your favorite music videos and selected TV shows. Download those episodes of Lost or Desperate Housewives that you missed. Or sync your videos with the new iPod and watch them anywhere.
Video Chatting Made Easy There's an iSight camera built into every new iMac, so you can start a video chat (or join one) at a moment's notice. There's nothing to buy, nothing to attach, no cords to fumble with, no software to install or configure. Simply start up iChat AV, click your buddy's video icon and you're ready to chat with sight and sound--with up to three friends at once. Proper attire suggested.
The new Photo Booth application (included) turns your iMac into a modern-day arcade photo booth (minus the coin slot). Just pick a special effect like sepia tint, x-ray, bulge or squeeze. And smile. Presto--instant high-quality photo. Once you have the perfect pic, take advantage of Photo Booth's connections to share it via Mail, save it in iPhoto or use it as your Address Book or iChat buddy picture.
Great software is included with the iMac, including Photo Booth.
Behind its breathtaking 17- or 20-inch widescreen display, iMac G5 displays some monstrous power--with a 1.9 GHz or 2.1 GHz G5 processor, a sizzling new PCI-Express ATI Radeon X600 Pro or XT graphics processor with 128MB of dedicated video memory and a new high-bandwidth system architecture. These technologies, coupled with Mac OS X Tiger (the world's most advanced operating system), simply make iMac G5 a joy to drive. Whether you're exercising your creativity, surfing the web, playing compute-intensive games or just staying in touch with friends.
It's a Wonderful iLife
iMac G5 has the power--and the brains--to be the center of your digital universe. It comes with iLife '05: a suite of easy-to-use applications that make the spectacular part of your everyday life. Enhance, organize and share your photos via iPhoto. Make an epic starring your kid in iMovie. Turn your photo and movie creations into professional DVDs with iDVD. Create original music in GarageBand, even if you can't carry a tune.
Like any modern computer should, iMac G5 comes ready with software preinstalled to use your digital devices right away. Just plug them in. With a plentiful passel of ports--USB 2.0, FireWire 400, composite and S-video outputs, audio in and out--you can connect just about any device, from cameras and camcorders to hard drives, stereos and the Mighty Mouse included with every iMac G5. With the forward-thinking Scroll Wheel, you can move around your digital life with 360° of freedom. And with built-in Gigabit Ethernet, you're all set for wired networking.
Cut the Cords
Better yet, eliminate the desktop clutter. iMac G5 comes with a pre-installed AirPort Extreme Card, so you can hop onto the Internet wirelessly up to 150 feet from an AirPort Extreme Base Station. Or you can add an AirPort Express with AirTunes to stream music to your stereo and send documents to your printer. iMac G5 also includes an internal Bluetooth 2.0+EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) for the latest wireless devices, like the Apple Wireless Keyboard and Mouse. You can even sync your Bluetooth-enabled cell phone so your numbers are always up to date. Impress your friends, confound your enemies--wireless only looks like magic.
