The iMac Core 2 Duo 3.33 with 27-inch screen is a configured-to-order iteration of the iMax Core 2 Duo 3.06 27-inch introduced in late 2009. This is the all-in-one desktop computer in an all-aluminum unibody casing behind the 27-inch LED-backlit IPS screen, covered by an edge-to-edge front glass and mounted on an aluminum stand with a slightly tapered foot and an adjusting hinge. It is almost identical to the iMac Core 2 Duo 3.33 21.5-inch in everything but the screen dimensions. The “Core 2 Duo” 3.33 27” (late 2009) features a 3.33GHz Intel “Core 2 Duo” processor (E8600), with two independent processor “cores” on a single silicon chip, 4 GB of RAM, a 1TB Serial ATA hard drive (7200 RPM), a slot-loading DVD+R DL “Super Drive”, Radeon HD 4670 graphics with 256 MB of memory shared with the system, or ATI Radeon HD 4670 graphics with 256 MB of shared memory, a built-in iSight webcam and stereo speakers, as well as a Firewire “800” and 4 USB 2.0 ports. It also has built-in draft and enabled AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Gigabit Ethernet and Mini DisplayPort capable of supporting a second display. The cooling system is CPU controlled and the in-built speakers are mounted beneath the 27-inch screen for the clearer less distorted sound to bounce off the desk or other surface. The speakers’ grills also work as the vent ones. The iMac Core 2 Duo 3.3327-inch (late 2009) is shipped with a compact aluminum Apple Wireless Keyboard and a new multi-touch “Magic Mouse”, an aluminum remote control is optional and available for an extra cost.

- The Core 2 Duo 8600 Wolfdale was the only option to replace the Core 2 Duo 7600. Though it’s speed is higher, the cache capacity is the same, it is equally incapable of hyper-threading and date encrypting.
- The remarkable thing about this built-to-order model is that the RAM capacity remained the default one – 4 GB.
