Apple has shifted its entire iMac family onto Intel’s Core 2010 silicon and ATI Radeon HD graphics with an overnight refresh of the iconic all-in-one desktop.
The $1599 21.5 inch base model now sports a 3.06GHz Core i3-540 and ATI Radeon HD 4670 graphics with 256MB of gDDR3 4GB of RAM and a 500GB drive.
Plonk down another $400 for an all-around upgrade to the processor (a 3.2GHz Core i3-550) ATI’s Radeon HD 5670 with 512MB gDDR3 and a 1TB drive.
The massive 27 inch iMacs start at $2199 with the same spec as above so you’re paying just another $200 for that supersized screen â€“ sounds like a bargain to us as long as your desk is big enough!
Or you can go to town with a quad-core 2.8GHz Core i5-760 coupled with ATI’s Radeon HD 5750 and 1GB gDDR5 plus the 1TB drive for $2599. Further options include a 2.93GHz quad-core Core i7 engine 2TB drive and 256GB solid state drive.
