Apple has finally updated its iMac line with new and latest Intel 4th generation Core Haswell CPUs that will be a key new addition to both the 21.5-inch and the 27-inch iMac systems.
In addition to the new Intel 4th generation Core Haswell CPUs that will bring better graphics, the new iMac systems will also feature next generation 802.11ac WiFi and faster PCI-Express flash storage. According to Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, "iMac still continues to be the example that proves how beatiful, fast and fun a desktop computer can be."
The entry-level 21.5-inch iMac will be paired up with Intel's quad-core Core i5 CPU clocked at 2.7GHz and paired up with Iris Pro graphics while it can be equipped with up to 3.1GHz clocked quad-core Core i7 CPU as well as Nvidia Geforce GT 750M 1GB graphics that will bring "twice the video memory and up to 40 percent faster performance" when compared to the previous generation.
The 27-inch starts off with quad-core 3.2GHz Core i5 CPU paired up with Nvidia Geforce GT 755M 2GB graphics card while the high-end model can be equipped with the 3.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU and Nvidia Geforce GTX 780M 4GB GDDR5 graphics card.
The rest of the options include up to 32GB of system memory in the top end offer, 1TB and 3TB Fusion Drive, 1TB and 3TB standard SATA or up to 1TB standard flash storage and bunch of other addition including the new 802.11ac WiFi that now comes as a standard on all new iMac computers.
The new iMac models will be available as of today and start at US $1,299 for the 21.5-inch entry level and US $1,799 for the 27-inch one. Of course, by adding some of the available options (or most of them) can easily get you up to US $3,949 or even more.
