MC309LL A – New Apple iMac MC309LL/A 21.5-Inch Desktop

I have been a Mac user for a long time, but I have also use PC (runs on Windows) at work because it is required to use PC Windows in the office.

I love Macs because of their reliability and stability, as well as easy to use.

I got this iMac MC309LL A to upgrade my older iMac yesterday, and as usual, I knew I was receiving more than just a desktop when I opened its box as it arrived. (got at $999,00)

The box was packed that we can easily pull our device easily out of the packing box. What you will see next, is how detailed your computer is padded and protected inside its packing box so it would not be easily damaged.

Next, was the details that I have expected from Apple. Nearly everything that you will need is packed, even a small special soft cleaning cloth for cleaning the screen.

The keyboard is packed in a slide open package, and the wireless mouse comes with its soft protective cover. Very impressive.

Furthermore, you will find a manual to read which explains on setting up your new computer, it lists nearly all basic informations you will rarely need, because the iMac setup assistant will do the job of getting started with your new desktop.

A new set-up for MC309LL A iMac is very simple and fast, about 15 minutes after I unboxed it, I could already accessed the internet.

This iMac MC309LL A traced my home network very fast, almost immediately, I did not need to do any extra works for it!

Design wise, Apple has the best designed products, everyone knows it. If you have never had Apple computer, this iMac MC309LL A would leave you delighted with its best design you have ever seen.

Unlike any other laptops or Desktops, Apple products, including this iMac MC309LL A has a great balance of pre-installed programs without overloading the machine with junky softwares. Thus will allow users to add any programs as needed.

Like the previous successors, this iMac MC309LL A includes a few adequate softwares that we mostly need, like iPhoto and iTunes. Although I still need Adobe Photoshop and Ms Office for works, iTunes, iPhoto and other programs are great included softwares.

The time-machine is very useful to recover some of your datas if they are deleted or lost accidentally. Having an automatic backups in case unwanted things would happen to our computers are just awesome.

I have helped many of my friends who unfortunately have some issues with their PCs, I must say, that having a Mac is really a joy, because you can do anything you want without issues that Windows users have.

This iMac MC309LL A works flawless, it has 2.5GHz Intel Core i5 processor that allowing you to be able to work on multiple programs simultaneously with stable performance, without any slowdown issues.

The 21.5″ LED-backlit widescreen display with a AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics processor gives really bright and sharp as well as beautiful colors. The included keyboard is actually smaller than I thought, but I do not have any troubles typing on it.

The keyboard does not include numeric keypad, so if you work with numbers a lot, you might want to get a larger standard keyboard. What great about the keyboard and mouse which are packed together with this iMac MC309LL A is, they are wireless.

I do really enjoy and love the freedom of wireless devices.

Bluetooth works with this iMac MC309LL A perfectly, also very simple to configure. I could easily connect this iMac MC309LL A with my BB phone using an Apple airport.
