Four new models are available through the Apple Store. The first two carry a 21.5 inch screen, a Core i5 clocked at 2.5 Ghz for the first model and a processor running at 2.7 Ghz for the second, 4 GB of RAM , a 500 GB hard drive for the first model and a 1 TB hard drive for the second, an AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 512 MB ​​of RAM for the first model and an AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 512 MB ​​of RAM for the second . Note that these iMacs are respectively $1199  to $1,499.

As for the top of the range model you’ll be looking at stumping up $1999 before any built-to-order additions. Your two grand does get you a hefty chunk of performance though, with 3.1GHz-worth if CPU and a 27-inch screen sporting a whopping 2560×1440 resolution.

 

At the options available include the Core i7 running at 2.8 Ghz (on the second model only)offered at 200 euros, 8 GB of RAM (both models) which will cost 200 euros and also a lot of choices the storage level. Needless to say, SSD technology is still expensive . Too bad, Apple could make an effort on that side.

On the two 27-inch iMac , and although there are always two models. The latter propose a Core i5 clocked at 2.7 Ghz (the first) or i5 clocked to 3.10 GHz (the second) , 4 GB RAM, 500 GB hard drive, an AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 512 MB of RAM (the first) or a AMD Radeon HD 6970M with 512 MB ​​of RAM (the second) . Concerning the price, it stings so much and always the first model is proposed for $1699 while the second will cost you a whopping sum of $1,999. Suffice to say that all your savings are likely to spend. And options in all this? T
o go to 8 GB of RAM, you will have to pay 200 euros but it will cost 600 euros for up to 16 GB of RAM. The 3.4 GHz Core i7 is meanwhile available for the second model and the option is offered at 200 euros. For storage, no big surprises, the options are exactly the same as the 21.5 inch iMac, which is to say, overpriced.

At radii of the four new models and shared outside the Sandy Bridge include the integration of two ports and a Thunderbolt FaceTime HD camera. The design of the bikes, meanwhile, has not evolved from a hair, but we suspected already. Now the question that you may be asking, is whether the investment is really worth. Here, finally, it all depends on your gear. Well, if you do not have a Mac computer or if your apple has already two or three years, it deserves consideration. However, if your iMac date of the last generation, I think you can pass your turn and wait for the next model. In my case, anyway, that’s what I intend to do.

Oh, and if you are going to break your piggy bank to buy yourself a new iMac, I really advise you to opt for a SSD drive because it will change your life completely
