Apple Updates iMac and Mac Mini
Apple is responding to the troubling economy by giving their consumers a bang for their buck – just when we want and need it. Today Apple launched a new 24” iMac for only $1,499, the same price you would have paid for a 20” iMac with half the hard drive space and memory. The 20” iMac will now sell for $1,199. I love sales, but boy do they upset me when I have already purchased the item (sorry iMac lovers). The 20 and 24 inch iMacs will be powered by Intel Core 2 Duo Processors 2.66 Ghz (24 inch iMac can be customized with up to a 3.06 Ghz processor). The 20 inch will be available with 2 GB of memory while the 24 inch will start with 4 GB (expandable up to 8 GB). A 320 GB hard drive will be available on the 20 inch and 640 GB – 1 TB will be available on the 24 inch. Both will feature a built in iSight video camera, mini displayport, built in AirPort Extreme 802.11 n wireless and Bluetooth 2.1.
Apple has also upgraded the cute Mac Mini, which hasn’t been one of their biggest sellers. The updated mini will include a better integrated graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce 9400M), a 2.0 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, and support up to 4 GB of memory. Available with 120 GB or 320 GB Hard drive for $599 and $799 respectfully.
Both the systems are available today via Apple’s online store -> http://store.apple.com
I’m personally a PC kind of gal, but sales are sales and need to be announced.
