Apple Announces New iMacs And They Are Hot Hot Hot

Wow, these look great and guess what you can do. Well, how about ordering a HDD AND an SSD for your 27 inch model. Sounds good to me, although it’s gonna set you back quite a bit, a 1TB HDD plus a 256GB SSD is a $750 CTO option, while the 2TB HDD in that combo makes it a $900 option. The other incredible feat is the increase of graphics of the top model 27 incher, now coming with an ATI Radeon HD 5750 discrete graphics with 1GB GDDR, that’s up from 512MB, as of my own model.


The base model will set you back $1,199 and boasts a 21.5-inch display (1,920 x 1,080), a 3.06GHz Core i3 CPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, ATI’s Radeon HD 4670 GPU (256MB) and a 500GB hard drive. There’s also an 8x slot-loading SuperDrive with dual-layer support, Mini DisplayPort, AirPort Extreme 802.11n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, iSight webcam, gigabit Ethernet, a foursome of USB 2.0 sockets, a single FireWire 800 port and a bundled wireless Apple Keyboard and Magic Mouse. The Magic Trackpad will not come bundled but is available as an optional extra.
