    OR iMac


    LED backlighting. One bright idea.
    Full brightness with no waiting. That’s the advantage of the LED-backlit iMac display. Unlike displays that take time to warm up before they reach maximum brightness, an LED-backlit display is instantly on and uniformly bright. LED backlighting also lets you finely tune the iMac display to suit the ambient light in even the dimmest room.

    More pixels. Better picture.
    The 21.5-inch iMac features 1920x1080 resolution. The 27-inch iMac boasts even greater resolution of 2560x1440. That’s a whopping 78 per cent more pixels than the 21.5-inch model. And more pixels mean images look crisp and true to life. A 1000:1 contrast ratio gives you more vibrant colours and blacker blacks. All in a 16:9 aspect ratio — the same as an HDTV.

    Stunning from every angle.
    The iMac display looks great from any seat in the house, thanks to a premium display technology called in-plane switching (IPS). IPS gives you a bright picture with excellent colour — even if you’re viewing the display from the side.

    27-inch: 2.7GHz
    2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
    2560 x 1440 resolution
    4GB (two 2GB) memory
    1TB hard drive1
    AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 512MB

    One's a computer. One's a television.

    Why not buy both, and connect the iMac to the Sony?

    :D that's a stupid comparison. Buy both.

    The product names of Sony is stupid. Just think if apple called the iMac for iMac-V67X3777-27u .... How does this benefit consumers??? They should hide these long awful names. Apple is the only company that get this.

    Other companies have much more than one product line for each category, which does make product naming a lot harder ;).

    Thank you for this interesting and informative comparison. In the future please tabulate the specs so that it's easier to compare. For example when comparing a car to a computer I would like to see fuel usage vs electricity usage and engine vs CPU. That will be really useful to help make an informed buying decision.
