The iMac 21.5 i5 1TB is made perfectly for the creative minds who need a device that can unleash their full potential. If you are a multitasker or even if you have to open multiple applications all at once, the iMac MF883LL/A can support whatever you have to do. To explore the greatness and other features of this wonderful all-in-one desktop, continue reading.
Wider display, thinner enclosure
Nothing is more annoying than a desktop that takes up almost all of the space you have on your desk. It is also frustrating when your computer does not function efficiently. But the MF883LL/A iMac would definitely change the way that you see your desktop. It has a 21.5-inch widescreen display that lets you see the smallest details of whatever you are working on. Everything appears better because the iMac?s screen was made to be 75 percent less reflective. To make sure that the space it takes on your desk is minimized, Apple manufactured the iMac to possess a thin enclosure that measures only 5mm at the edge.
High-performance technologies and powerful processors
A thin bezel and wider display don?t mean anything if an all-in-one desktop does not deliver an astounding performance. To match its sleek body, the iMac 21.5" 1.4GHz is powered by a 4th generation quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, built on the latest Haswell architecture. This powerful processor is the standard processor of the iMac. But it does not stop there. A Turbo Boost of up to 2.7GHz is available if you want to experience faster performance. So if you want a speed boost, the Apple iMac MF883LL/A can give you something faster.
Humongous storage space
High-capacity storage is a must for any desktop. Apple makes sure that storage space is not going to be a problem with the iMac. In fact, the iMac 8GB DDR3 SDRAM is so fast that even if you are working on large files, you won't experience downtime or data losses. To enhance your work experience and to enable you to save more data, this iMac features a 500GB SATA HDD.
New-generation graphics with improved speed
Several desktops claim to have high-quality graphics yet fail to execute fast performance. But the iMac is not like that. Because it uses Intel HD Graphics 500, you can experience smooth graphic performance even if you are working with graphic-intensive applications and tasks. Also, the technology of the latest NVIDIA GeForce 700 GPU makes the iMac MF883LL/A faster than the previous generation and doubles its video memory. These features result in a better fps rate, smoother animation, and better responsiveness.
Faster Fusion Drive for higher capacity
It may be true that traditional hard drives offer extra storage space for your files. But having a higher storage space does not necessarily mean that your desktop would function faster. Good thing, the iMac can be configured with a Fusion Drive that combines storage space and speed in one drive. With it, everything is processed faster as you continue with your work.
Several options for better connectivity
The iMac gives you several ways to connect to the Internet or to other devices. It has 802.11ac Wi-Fi, the latest and fastest Wi-Fi technology, which allows you to connect to the World Wide Web wirelessly. You could also use the Thunderbolt 2.0 port for transferring files to external storage devices or daisy-chaining peripherals to your iMac. Bluetooth 4.0 is also available so you can easily receive and transfer files from other Bluetooth-enabled devices.
OS X Mavericks
Your iMac experience would remain dull if it is not supported by Mac OS X Mavericks. Through this OS, you can be updated with the latest apps that you can utilize to make your work easier. And because it is the latest from Apple, one of its advanced features is that it reduces your power consumption.
Do not be contented with the performance that your desktop gives. Buy any iMac 21.5" from MacMall now and experience working on a different level.
iMac Performance and design. Taken right to the edge.
This stunning all-in-one iMac features a beautiful 21.5-inch widescreen display. Fourth-generation quad-core Intel Core processors and superfast Intel HD graphics make it the most powerful iMac yet. And it comes standard with 8GB memory (configurable to 16GB), a 500GB hard 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 5 mm at the edge.
Ultrathin design. The desktop. In its most advanced form ever.
Creating such a stunningly thin design took some equally stunning feats of technological innovation. We refined, re-imagined, or re-engineered everything about iMac from the inside out. The result is an advanced, elegant all-in-one computer that's as much a work of art as it is state of the art.
Beautiful widescreen display. Brilliance onscreen. And behind it.
How did we make an already gorgeous widescreen display even better? By making it 75 percent less reflective. And by re-architecting the LCD and moving it right up against the cover glass. So you see your photos, games, movies, and everything else in vivid, lifelike detail.

Fourth-generation Intel Core processors. Fast comes standard.
Core i5 processor The fourth-generation quad-core Intel Core i5 processor — based on the latest Haswell architecture — is standard on iMac. It's available at a clock speed of up to 1.4GHz. Since OS X is designed to take advantage of each core, iMac captures every bit of performance from the processor. OS X also supports Hyper-Threading in the Core i7, allowing two threads to run simultaneously on each core — giving you eight virtual cores of processing power.
Turbo Boost (Up to 2.7GHz) Say you're using a processor-intensive application like Aperture or Final Cut Pro that benefits from extra power. Turbo Boost automatically increases the speed of the active cores, so the Core i5, for example, can offer up to 2.7GHz. And by shifting core frequency in small increments, Turbo Boost allows the processor to manage performance without sacrificing efficiency. All this takes place behind the scenes, so your work - and play - goes smoother and faster.
New-generation graphics. Next-generation speed.
iMac graphics have gotten even more powerful across the board. This 21-inch iMac comes with Intel HD Graphics 5000 that allows you to experience delivers discrete graphics-level performance. NVIDIA GeForce 700 series graphics processors are also available in the higher-end 21-inch iMac models and 27-inch models. NVIDIA graphics are faster than the previous generation and include double the video memory. That translates into more frames per second, smoother animation, and better responsiveness when you're using graphics-intensive apps like 3D games, high-resolution photo and video editors, and more. If you choose the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M with 4GB of video memory on the 27-inch iMac, you get the best graphics performance available in an all-in-one computer.
Faster Fusion Drive. High Capacity meets higher performance.
Available as a configurable option, Fusion Drive provides up to 50 percent faster performance. It's a breakthrough concept that combines the high storage capacity of a traditional hard drive with the high performance of flash storage. With Fusion Drive in your iMac, disk-intensive tasks — from booting up to launching apps to importing photos — are faster and more efficient. That's because frequently used items are kept at the ready on speedy flash storage, while infrequently accessed items go to the hard drive. The file transfers take place in the background, so you won't even notice. As the system learns how you work, Fusion Drive makes your Mac experience even better.
802.11ac Wi-Fi. The new definition of fast.
With three-stream 802.11ac technology, iMac takes desktop Wi-Fi speeds over the top. When it's connected to an 802.11ac base station - including the new AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule - you can reach data rates of up to 1.3 Gbps. That's triple the previous 802.11n standard, which means you'll get up to three times faster Wi-Fi. You also get double the channel bandwidth, with 80MHz-wide channels providing more room for more data to flow faster than ever.
Thunderbolt I/O. It's all about speed and versatility. And speed.
With one tiny port, you get superfast data transfer speeds and huge expansion capabilities. Thunderbolt features two 10-Gbps data channels per port, which means data transfer is up to twice as fast as USB 3 and up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800. And don't worry about a single drive or peripheral tying up a Thunderbolt port: You can daisy-chain as many as six devices plus a display. All iMac models include two Thunderbolt ports for even more expansion possibilities.

iMac is my favorite desktop since 8th grade, but because given the fact that I am still an 8th grader way back, I only drool for it and repeatedly reading the specs and wonders of iMac. I was really amazed with the sized of the screen it offers and the technologies in it that is why I told my parents that I would passed a University and as a present, they would give me an iMac for college.
Aside from Apple’s iMac, I love to explore the wonders of Photoshop. I kind of could be considered as a… visual artist? I doodle on Photoshop, made banners and I am currently taking up a crash course about multimedia arts every weekend in 6 months. I love colors, advancements, explorations and designs. And I do believe that Apple’s iMac would best suit me and my lifestyle.
So, I studied well enough for me to be able to get into a University so that my parents would get me an iMac, and fortunately, they did. They told me that they were to order online because of their busy schedules, plus my Dad is always out of town so we rarely go out together.
They got the recommendation from a colleague to get an iMac for me at MacMall. Week before I started the academic year, I already had it but to be honest, I was expecting delays in delivery, but no, MacMall is true to his word, thanks for that, buddy!
Today I have a lot with my iMac. From music to my artworks and visual to my photos and schoolworks, it’s all here. But definitely, iMac is the best desktop. It hasn’t given me any hard time yet even though I am doing so many things all at the same time.
