Only slightly slower than the blazing Core i7 iMac, this Core i5-based 27-incher runs Windows and OS X, but you don't get extras like mulit-touch, Blu-ray, or a TV tuner.

Manufacturer’s Description

The new iMac 27-inch display with edge-to-edge glass covers nearly the entire front of the enclosure. When all you see is the display, nothing gets between you and what's on-screen. Movies, TV shows, websites, photos - everything looks stunning on the new 16:9 widescreen iMac display.
