New iMac ultrathin At First Sight

New iMac ultrathin At First Sight

The is a product which is very fond was the computer that pushed this new Apple in record-breaking growth and semester to semester. From that egg color, through the “lamp”, up to the current formats, the iMac has been a favorite in a category of output frank: The desktop computers.

The last time Apple released a redesigned iMac, basically what I did was put on a diet and losing weight, and did that again today, this time in an extreme form. The edges of the iMac are absurdly thin, with slightly thicker center – somewhere you have to put the components – and the rest remains similar, at least on the outside.

Inside, the screen is completely changed, also updated the hardware, but perhaps most interesting is a set of software + hardware that Apple released today: Fusion Drive.

Fusion Drive is a technology in which coexists solid state drive and a hard drive, which is not entirely new to the industry, but this time it is not to have two different albums, but to create a single partition between the operating system and deciding where to go places applications and files according to their level of use, and access to the quickest way to them. This is particularly useful for those working in the audiovisual and design, seeking speed but that in turn require massive storage sizes. It’s like having a fast and a slow winery and go swinging the amount of charge in each space based on frequency of use.

The new iMac keeps its models and separates in two screen sizes: 21.5 “with resolution of 1920 x 1080 and 27″ at a resolution of 2560 X 1440. Both bring Intel Core i5 quad-core generation – Ivy Bridge -, 8 GB RAM and 1 TB hard drives, both can be configured as Core i7, larger disks (more Fusion Drive) and up to 32 GB of RAM (only 16 GB in 21.5 “).

Making new iMac is impressive, the new screen and how thin it is jaw-dropping; incorporating Fusion Drive also seems interesting, will have to see how it behaves in real life, but what we would love to see it a higher resolution screen in the model of 21.5 “. If you’re seeing screens 13 “with resolutions of 2560 pixels in width, having seen a similar resolution on the screen of 21.5″ no sounds crazy, maybe not beat the price for an option BTO – Built to Order or Made to Order – to at least be consistent with the new trend of Retina Display.
