Apple: new iMacs with Thunderbolt, FaceTime HD, and more power


new imac

Apple, while keeping up with the times, has decided that it is time to unveil a new set of iMacs to the world. There are two base models — with 21.5-inch and 27-inch version — with the rudimentary upgrades included, but there are also some new additions that might peak your interest too.

This time around there are faster processors, improved graphics chips, and a FaceTime HD camera. There is also a Thunderbolt port provided, which will enable these iMacs to transfer data at incredible speeds (assuming the devices that will support Thunderbolt are coming out soon).

So what’s included? The 21.5-inch iMac will start with a 2.5GHz i5 processor, Radeon HD 6750M graphics, and 500GB hard drive for $1,199 on the lower end of the spectrum. The 27-inch adds a bit more punch with a 3.1GHz i5 Intel processor, Radeon HD 6970M graphics, and a 1TB hard drive starting at $1,999. If you need even more power, you can add a 3.4GHz i7 processor, a 2TB hard drive or a 256GB solid state drive. Furthermore, the new FaceTime HD camera supports 720p resolution.

So… who’s buying?
