Re : iMac Intel 21.5 inch

The 2.7 GHz processor on the iMac 21.5 inch is not that impressive and does not leave much to write home about. Most of the modern iMacs and iPads coming into the market have intergrated the new TurboBoost technology into their processors; some can boost the 2.7 GHz to upto 3.6 GHz when under heavy usage. I believe the iMac 21.5" needs this even more. nice design though.

Thanks iFixit for taking the time to show us the cutting-edge technology inside this design.  Some of these design techniques are very clever.

Rob,

I agree. The tech inside of the iMac is quite impressive. I was really surprised to see a Texas Instruments Stellaris LM4FS1AH microcontroller and Analog Devices SSM33202 audio amplifer inside of the notebook. Wondering what function the TI microcontrolller plays in the iMac. The iFixit folks are awesome at teardowns: I have their app on my Android phone with all of the cool tips and tricks for repairing today's consumer electronic products. Very nice slides.

Here's another Apple teardown. Again, it's surprising how much technology is packed into such a slim form. Smartphone were a real breakthrough on tiny tech. The new iPad introduced yesterday is 40 percent slimmer than its predecessor. Amazing.

Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes.
