(Tech Mainstream) With seven vibrant colors to choose from, a 11.5mm slender design and less than ten pounds the new iMac "stands out in any space" and "fits perfectly into your life."
Starting at $1299, the new iMac comes in a exceptional choice of colors, often rare for any computer, blue, green, pink, silver, yellow, orange and purple. There is also a corresponding color-matched keyboard, mouse, and trackpad available.

The new iMac's slim design is attributed to it's new M1 chip structure:
"This extraordinary design is only possible thanks to M1, the first system on a chip for Mac. It makes iMac so thin and compact that it fits in more places than ever."
The remarkable M1 chip integrates the processor, graphics, memory, and more onto a single chip. Making the chip space occupied in the computer indeed very small. The iMac's big chin along the monitor's lower panel is where the computer's internals are purportedly stored, hence the "big chin" designation.
Other notable iMac features include blazingly fast Thunderbolt ports, immersive 24‑inch 4.5K Retina display, 1080p FaceTime HD camera, studio-quality mics, six-speaker sound system and macOS Big Sur.
The combination of M1 and macOS Big Sur create "great power":
"Take iMac to entirely new levels of performance, efficiency, and security. iMac wakes from sleep almost instantly, apps launch in a flash, and the whole system feels fluid, smooth, and snappy. With up to 85 percent faster CPU performance and up to two times faster graphics performance than standard 21.5‑inch iMac models, you can use apps like Xcode and Affinity Photo to compile code in a fraction of the time or edit photos in real time. And it runs cool and quiet even while tackling these intense workloads."
The iMac works together with the iPhone for increased accessibility. This iPhone/iMac interaction includes receiving calls and texts, AirDrop sharing things like photos, websites, and files and Universal Clipboard lets you copy text, images, photos, and more all ending up on the iMac.
