New Apple iMacs arrive

No surprises as rumoured new iMacs follow this morning’s Apple Store online outage

As we speculated last week, today Apple has decked out its window display with some shiny new iMacs. With prices starting just under a grand (£999), the new desktop all-in-ones are claiming a 70 per cent speed hike and three times faster graphics. That’s down to Intel’s quad-core Sandy Bridge i5 (or i7, by special order) silicon and new AMD Radeon graphics. The new range also has Intel’s 10Gbps Thunderbolt connectivity – the superfast interface that’s tipped to take over from USB.

We’ll let Apple talk you through prices:

The new iMac is available through the Apple Store, Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorised Resellers. The 21.5-inch iMac is available in two configurations: one with a 2.5 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, AMD Radeon HD 6750M and 500GB hard drive for a suggested retail price of £999.00 inc VAT (£832.50 ex VAT); and one with a 2.7 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, AMD Radeon HD 6770M and 1TB hard drive for a suggested retail price of £1249.00 inc VAT (£1040.83 ex VAT). The new 27-inch iMac is available in two models: one with a 2.7 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, AMD Radeon HD 6770M and 1TB hard drive for a suggested retail price of £1399.00 inc VAT (£1165.83 ex VAT); and one with a 3.1 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, AMD Radeon HD 6970M and 1TB hard drive for a suggested retail price of £1649.00 inc VAT (£1374.17 ex VAT).
