Apples New iMacs

Apple packs a punch in their new iMac lineup with the industry’s most powerful consumer processors.

Apple gave their line of iMacs an overhaul today, offering industry-leading Intel Core 2 Duo processors in each of its new lineup of iMacs. Offered in 17″, 20″ and 24″ models, the processor speeds range from 1.83Ghz to 2.33Ghz, marking nearly a 50% performance increase over the previous line of iMacs.

Somehow Apple has also managed to cut the prices of its new machines, cutting the price of its 17″ base model to $999, while the 24″ flavor of iMac costs a modest $1999, establishing a very attractive cost/performance ratio.

The 24″ model, dubbed the “iMac HD” by some enthusiasts, comes standard with 1GB of memory, a 250GB Serial ATA hard drive, NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT graphics card, a SuperDrive and a remote control for media applications. The new iMacs are currently available at Apple’s website and are said to ship within 24 hours.
