The rumours were spot on: a new iMac line has just landed in officialdom, bringing all of the benefits of the recent MacBook Pro models to your desktop, and then some. Read on to see what’s new, and just how much it’ll all set you back.
While the Cinema Display-esque unibody build hasn’t changed, the new iMac models now pack in second generation Intel Core CPUs – the standard models come with a quad core Core i5 CPU (2.5, 2.7 or 3,1GHz), while custom models have the option of a Core i7 clocked at up to 3.4GHz – every model included AMD Radeon HD external graphics also.
Unsurprisingly, the new iMac models also tote Thunderbolt ports for super fast data transfer. The 21.5-inch model comes with one of these lightning fast connections, while the larger 27-inch model packs in two. Eveyr new iMac comes with a webcam capable of FaceTime HD chats, and Snow Leopard pre-installed – hard drive options start from 500GB moving up to 1TB and every model comes with a Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad.
The new iMac models are on sale now, with prices starting at £999, but there are a bevy of options so head over to the Apple Store to check them out. We’re expecting to get hands on with these beauties tomorrow morning, so we’ll report back then with our findings.
