Apple has just launched a new iMac on their website this week. The new mac is a entry level computer that is targeted for schools. Apple quietly released this device and made no major announcement about it, which may mean they do not want this device gaining mass public awareness of it. Education customers are getting immediate access to purchase these budget conscience and lower featured iMacs.
The new iMac features a 21.5-inch LED backlit glossy display (1920 by 1080 pixels), 3.1GHz dual-core i3 processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM (configurable up to 8GB), 250GB hard drive, and an AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics processor with 256MB of GDDR5 memory. Pricing starts at $999, Apple sure does love to stay above that price threshold for computers. Note that there was no mention as to whether there would be a Thunderbolt port located on this iMac on the Apple website specs page.
