Apple iMac refreshed with latest Quad-Core processors and Thunderbolt

As we have said in an earlier post, Apple iMac has indeed been refreshed with the latest Sandy Bridge i5 or i7 Quad-Core processors. Prices starts at $1199 for the 21.5-inch model with 2.5Ghz i5 Quad-Core processor. The 21.5-inch iMac features 1920-by-1080 resolution while the 27-inch iMac boasts even greater resolution of 2560-by-1440. Both the 21.5-inch and 27-inch models have IPS displays which offers a stunning viewing angle.

The lowest ranged 21.5-inch is equipped with 512MB AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics processor while followed by Radeon HD 6770M and with 6970M being equipped in the highest end model.
FaceTime which has been an added feature on iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4th Gen and iPad 2 is now featured on iMac.It has a FaceTime HD camera which is capable of videos up to 2560-by-1600 in pixels. 

One other new feature which can never be left out is the added Thunderbolt port on the iMac. You'll be seeing 1 Thunderbolt port on the 21.5-inch model and 2 on the 27-inch model.

On the plus side, we're now given a SDXC card slot which though is not widely used at the moment is great for all future electronics with capacities up to 2TB.
The exterior pretty much looks the same but much has changed with the interior so head on to Apple Store now to get one which ships within 24 hours.
