Late 2012 to late 2013 model
The stunning all-in-one iMac features a beautiful, completely re-engineered 27-inch widescreen display that's 75 percent less reflective. Third-generation quad-core Intel Core processors and superfast NVIDIA graphics make it the most powerful iMac yet. And it comes with 8 GB memory, a 1.1 TB Fusion drive, and advanced, high-speed I/O, including two Thunderbolt ports and four USB 3 ports. All in an impossibly thin enclosure that's only 5mm at the edge.
This special "Build-to-order" version of the 27-inch iMac (model MD096LL/A-BTO) features a 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5 quad-core processor as well as an NVIDIA GeForce GT 680MX graphics processor with 2 GB of video memory (a $250 option) (see full specifications below) and features a blazing fast and spacious 1.1TB Fusion Drive (a $250 option).
Redesigned from the inside out, the iMac's aluminum and glass enclosure has up to 40 percent less volume than its predecessor and an edge that measures just 5mm thin. It also features a completely reengineered display that reduces reflection by 75 percent while maintaining brilliant color and contrast. In the new design, the cover glass is fully laminated to the LCD and an anti-reflective coating is applied using a high-precision plasma deposition process.
Revolutionary Thunderbolt Technology
Developed by Intel with collaboration from Apple, high-speed Thunderbolt I/O (input/output) technology delivers an amazing 10 gigabits per second of transfer speeds in both directions. Built into the Mac mini, the Thunderbolt port allows you to connect to new Thunderbolt-compatible peripherals as well as existing USB and FireWire peripherals using simple adapters. You'll be able to move data up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and more than 12 times faster than with FireWire 800, and you can daisy-chain up to six high-speed devices without using a hub. Thunderbolt also supports DisplayPort for high resolution displays and works with existing adapters for HDMI, DVI, and VGA displays.
With USB 3 built into the Mac mini, you can connect your external hard drive and transfer large files in seconds instead of minutes. Every Mac mini comes with four USB 3 ports--with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2--and you can connect all your USB-compatible devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod, or digital camera.
More Energy Efficient, Highly Recyclable
The iMac is more energy efficient than any previous iMac, using up to 50 percent less energy in the idle state with the display on. And its hardware components work hand in hand with the operating system to conserve even more power. The environmentally friendly iMac design is free of many harmful toxins, including mercury, arsenic, BFRs, and PVC. It’s also made from materials such as aluminum and glass, which are more likely to be recycled and reused.
And with the FaceTime HD camera placed above the display in the iMac's thin aluminum and glass design, you'll be able to make video calls in HD 720p resolution to friends and family on another iMac or MacBook. Additionally, you'll be able to connect to those using a FaceTime-enabled iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.

Note: The iMac does not come with an optical drive, however OS X Mountain Lion offers the convenient DVD or CD Sharing feature, which lets you wirelessly "borrow" the optical drive of a nearby Mac or PC. So you can install applications from a DVD or CD and have full access to an optical drive without having to carry one around. Additionally, you can connect an optional optical drive (such as the Apple USB SuperDrive) via one of the USB ports.
