Apple today announced that its new ultra-thin 21.5-inch iMac will be available on Friday, November 30th through the Apple Store, Apple Online Store and third-party resellers. Apple introduced its new iMac lineup alongside the iPad mini at a special media event last month, surprising the crowd with the all-in-one desktop computer’s 80 percent thinner design. The new iMac also has faster processors, a new display with reduced reflection and a hybrid storage option called Fusion Drive. The larger 27-inch iMac will be available in December.
Redesigned from the inside out, the new iMac packs high performance technology into an aluminum and glass enclosure that measures just 5 mm thin at its edge and features a reengineered display that reduces reflection by 75 percent. The new iMac includes 8GB of 1600 MHz memory, a 1TB hard drive, third generation quad-core Intel Core i5 processors that can be upgraded to Core i7, and the latest NVIDIA GeForce graphics processors that deliver up to 60 percent faster performance.
