Apple announced this morning that their newest iMac units will be available for purchase on Friday, November 30. Both units, the 21.5″ and 27″ will start shipping in December it seems.
You can read their news blurb here, or just see some tech specs below. The new units look good, but don’t expect that to come cheaply. I do not have word yet on our product count for this, but being the #1 reseller of Apple products in the US, I’m awfully sure that PCMall will have a lot of these available. 🙂Redesigned from the inside out, the new iMac packs high performance technology into an aluminum and glass enclosure that measures just 5 mm thin at its edge and features a reengineered display that reduces reflection by 75 percent. The new iMac includes 8GB of 1600 MHz memory, a 1TB hard drive, third generation quad-core Intel Core i5 processors that can be upgraded to Core i7, and the latest NVIDIA GeForce graphics processors that deliver up to 60 percent faster performance. Fusion Drive is an innovative new storage option that gives customers the performance of flash and the capacity of a hard drive by combining 128GB of flash with a standard hard drive to create a single storage volume that intelligently manages files to optimize read and write performance.
The 21.5-inch iMac is available with a 2.7 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.2 GHz and NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M for a suggested retail price of $1,299 (US); and with a 2.9 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.6 GHz and NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M for a suggested retail price of $1,499 (US). The 27-inch iMac is available with a 2.9 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.6 GHz and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M for a suggested retail price of $1,799 (US); and with a 3.2 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.6 GHz and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX for a suggested retail price of $1,999 (US).
Remember, Apple makes great hardware for Windows! 🙂
(For those that say I’m biased…I am…mostly for humor, but I won’t hide it. Most importantly, if you like it, and it works for you…use it. 🙂 )
There you have it…have a great day! 🙂
