Apple iMac range refreshed with Haswell processors

New all-in-one models may look the same – but the innards have been upgraded

Apple has refreshed its range of iMac all-in-one desktops with new processors, graphics abilities and more.

The ultra-skinny aluminium body of the 21.5in and 27in iMacs remains untouched from the previous generation, but inside there’s a lot to get excited about. First and foremost, the new iMacs come with quad-core Intel Haswell CPUs. Entry-level models feature integrated (but very powerful) Iris Pro graphics, while higher-end iMacs offer Nvidia GeForce 700 and GeForce GTX 780M discrete graphics cards, which will greatly increase options for gamers and video editors alike.

On sale now from $1,788

All models offer faster next-gen 802.11ac Wi-Fi, at least 8GB of RAM and support for PCIe-based flash storage (this works up to 50 percent quicker than on the previous generation). New iMacs can be configured with 1TB or 3GB Fusion Drives, or all-flash storage of up to 1TB.

The new models are on sale now at Apple’s online store, with the 21.5in iMac starting at $1,788 and the 27in iMac starting at $2,488.
