On the lauching of iMacs,  Apple was working hand in hand with an educatinal institutions for a less expensive iMacs that can be offered  at a lower cost. And then after a while, the firm dropped her initiative. Terrible, terrible, because schools and libraries have then had no choice but to turn to the embedding Windows PC. What a tragedy! Fortunately, Steve Jobs and his cronies have finally decided to restart the operation with an iMac … offered for $999 !


But of course, for that price, we can not enjoy a "real" iMac. Finally if, but not completely.Proof of this is, this iMac will not propose to $999 no port Thunderbolt , just a Mini Display PortAnd that's not all, as the bitten apple has also decided to trim the side of the RAM and the iMac embarks and a strip of 2 GB instead of the usual 4 GB. Okay, it's been awfully stingy, we are friends agree. Otherwise, these are the technical specifications of this machine:

  • Intel Core i3 Dual Core running at 3.1 GHz.
  • 21.5-inch screen.
  • Graphics Card AMD Radeon HD 6750 with 256MB of memory.
  • 2 GB of RAM.
  • Hard Drive 250 GB
  • SuperDrive optical drive.
  • Mac OS X Lion.

Well, on paper, it is not so bad (at worst, we can add a little memory back through the usual suppliers) but I still wonder what school or what institution can put as much in a bike. Kind if you want to build a fleet of 10 or 20 machines, it will still extend a check for $10,000 or $20,000. Quiet, what … The irony in the story is that for the same price, you can buy twice as many PCs. And with a little behind Ubuntu, you're quiet for a while more.

In short, it's a great initiative, it's true, but Apple would probably go even from a little further … well a little lower, in fact.
