Apple has unveiled a new line-up of four iMacs, which feature high speed Thunderbolt ports, quad-core Sandy Bridge processors, HD FaceTime cameras and powerful new graphics.
Preceding it with the now mandatory blip on the online Mac Store, Apple has announced a line-up of four new iMacs which look almost identical to the models they are replacing but featuring much updated specs on the inside. The highlight of the updated all-in-ones is the inclusion of Thunderbolt ports which we first saw in Apple’s refreshed MacBook Pros last February. Prices for the updated iMacs begin at £999 for the 21.5in model featuring a 2.5GHz Quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of memory, 500GB hard drive, 1920x1080 resolution and 512MB of AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics. A bump of £250 in price will get you the same processor running at 2.7GHz, a 1TB of storage and 512MB of AMD Radeon HD 6770M graphics.
Looking at the 27in models prices begin at £1,399 with the larger displays running the 2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 processor and featuring 1TB of storage, 4GB of memory, 2560 x 1440 resolution and 512MB of AMD Radeon HD 6770M graphics. The high-end 27in model comes in at £1,649 and sports the same 27in display as the lower-priced model but with a super fast 3.1GHz i5 processor and 1GB of AMD Radeon HD 6970M graphics. The 21in models will have one Thunderbolt port each while the 27in models will have two. All models come with a built-in FaceTime HD camera and FaceTime software. Shipping will take 24hrs so you won’t have to wait long to get your hands on the newest iMacs.
While there may be nothing new on the outside except for the Thunderbolt ports at the rear, the new iMacs certainly pack in a lot of new specs which should keep all those iMac fans happy.
