We’ll Start with the iMac as its undoubtedly the most popular Mac of all time and probably one of the most iconic in terms of design. There have been no major design changes, we still have the incredibly thin aluminium unibody enclosure and choice of 21.5 and 27 inch screens. The new configuration offers the latest Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors and powerful new graphics options. From the press release, Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing explains:
“We took the world’s best all-in-one and made it even better. With the latest processors, high-performance graphics and signature aluminium and glass design, customers are going to love the latest iMac.”
There are now a number of processor options to pick from – Dual-core Intel Core i3 and Core i5, and quad-core Core i5 and Core i7 chips take the computing options from affordable to professional. The processors feature an integrated memory controller to access the system memory directly, allowing the new iMac to take full advantage of its faster 1333 MHz memory. New ATI Radeon HD processors have also been added into the mix and they will deliver incredibly smooth and crisp graphics for the most demanding games, software and technical applications.
Another incredible new option is the facility to order a 256GB solid state drive (SSD) as a primary or secondary drive in the larger iMacs. This will add significantly to the performance of your iMac – and its price.
“The new Mac Pro is the most powerful and configurable Mac we’ve ever made,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “With up to 12 cores, the new Mac Pro outperforms our previous top-of-the-line system by up to 50 percent, and with over a billion possible configurations, our customers can create exactly the system they want.”
