Hi,

I'm considering purchasing the new Imac 27 Inch i5 package and would like to know do the Intel i5 processors have the ' turbo boost ' ability whereby applications that only require a sinlge processor enable the 2.6 clocked cores to boost up to 3.2 or it's whereabouts ?

Many Thanks

Sean

Yes, the i5 dose have turbo boost. Only the i7 has both turbo boost and hyper threading.
