First Impressions Of 2012 iMac Model (Hint Shocker)

iMac 2012 is a shocker. It is incredibly thin and still has a bump in spec. Along with its thin design, Apple bragged about the Fusion Drive which includes both SSD and HDD. Apple said, SSD will help increase speed overall and all the other files that you'll store will shift to HDD. That is what we call innovation.

Look out, world -- Apple just unleashed its latest iMac, and we agree that it might just be the biggest leap in the platform since we left Bondi Blue. It's hard to overstate just how phenomenal this machine looks in the flesh. It's also unbelievably thin -- we'd be impressed if it were simply a new Cinema Display, but the fact that a computer is in there really takes it over the top. At $1,299, you'll be hard-pressed to find a sexier all-in-one (assuming you don't need an inbuilt optical drive, of course). Have a look at the eye candy below; we'll be spending a fair amount of time with this guy in the weeks ahead
Tech Crunch
Both the 21.5 and 27-inch versions are light – amazingly so if you’ve ever had to lug around their predecessors during a move or redecoration. Another big advantage of the new iMac is that the 21.5-inch version has two Thunderbolt ports this time around, something reserved for the 27-inch version in the past. That means it can power up to two external displays at the same time, and also host a variety of Thunderbolt-enabled accessories. That’s a big handicap removed from the more affordable computer.

Performance with Mountain Lion and Aperture seemed silky smooth on both versions, but that’s not surprising giving their specifications. And using the new Fusion Drive, which combines the speed advantages of flash memory with the capacity of platter hard disk drives definitely seems to speed things up compared to my 2011 27-inch iMac with a 1TB standard hard drive.
Slash Gear
What’s changed is the way the screens are layered together, and even without Retina that’s impressive. Optical lamination, just as we’ve seen used on the iPhone 5, brings the LCD IPS and cover glass together into a single pane, for what Apple says is 75-percent less reflection. To our eyes, though, it’s the colors and detail that really stand out. Apple is very keen to talk up the high-tech manufacturing magic it had to muster in order to make the new iMacs quite so slim, but it’s the end-result that really grabs the attention. The crisp lines are reminiscent of the edges of the Retina MacBook Pro line, with bunched vents running under the chin of the desktop, and bevels in the stand that echo what we’ve seen Appel doing in its high-end notebook range.
The Verge 
Apple isn't calling this panel a "Retina Display," the techniques and appearance of this panel are pretty close to Retina-level: the laminated front glass and anti-glare treatments make images look like they're lying right on top of the screen, and the same scaling options you get on a Retina MacBook Pro are present in system preferences. (The highest available resolution on the 27-inch model is 2560 x 1440.) Overall it looks stunning — the first real reason to replace an iMac in years.
 Pocket Lint
A number of configurations will be available and start with 2.9GHz quad-core Intel i5 and 2.7GHz quad-core Intel i5 processors for the 27 and 21.5-inch models respectively. We didn't have that much time at the event to play with the iMac to see how it performs, but a quick whizz of the mouse and opening up some apps proved it to perform as we would expect.
