As expected, Apple today unveiled 2 new iMac models with larger screens, with one measuring 21.5 inches and the larger model coming in at 27 inches. The old base model iMac checked in at 20 inches while the high-end model checked in at 24 inches.
Here are the specs on the 2 new desktop Macs:
21.5-inch and 27-inch models, one of the following:
- 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 3MB shared L2 cache
- 3.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 6MB shared L2 cache
27-inch models only, one of the following:
- 2.66GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with 8MB shared L3 cache; Turbo Boost dynamic performance up to 3.2GHz
- 2.8GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with 8MB shared L3 cache; Turbo Boost dynamic performance up to 3.46GHz; Hyper-Threading for up to eight virtual cores
The 21.5 inch iMac weighs in at 20.5 pounds while the 27 inch model weighs in at 30 pounds.
The base price for the 21.5 inch iMac is $1999 while the 27 inch model starts at $1999. From the looks of it, it appears that Apple is no longer selling the old 20-inch and 24-inch iMac models.
Both models come with a wireless keyboard and Apple’s new multitouch mouse. In addition, both models sport LED-backlist displays. The 21.5 inch model sports 1920×1080 resolution while the 27-inch iMac sports a 2560×1440 display, representing 60% more pixels than the previous 24 inch model.
