Apple’s New Faster iMacs & Mac Pros Launched

by Ferman Aziz

It was obvious they were coming but nobody could’ve guessed so soon. Apple launched its new line of iMacs and Mac pros today and they’re boasting of a lot of new upgrades, faster speed and LED screens with cinematic vision.

As predicted, the iMac now has Intel Core processors and gone are the Core 2 Duo in the bottom-tier slot. The base $1,199 iMac comes with a 3.06 GHz Core i3, 4GB of RAM, 512MB ATI Radeon HD 4670 and a 500GB 7200RPM Hard drive. The big daddy $1,999 iMac however sports a 27-inch 2560 x 1440 LED display, Quad-core i5 with an optional Quad-Core i7, 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5750 GPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 1TB hard drive.

The SD slot on the iMac now supports the SDXC format, giving it access to even larger storage cards. Finally, there’s the new IPS-based 27-inch LED Cinema Display with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a perfect companion for the 27” iMac if you need more screen real estate. It comes with built-in MagSafe charging, iSight camera, speakers, and three USB ports.

The Mac Pro can now be ordered with 12 processing cores and is equipped with Quad-Core Intel Xeon which is available in multiple different configurations and models. The new Macs would’ve been perfect if they also featured USB 3.0, Firewire 1600/3200 and Blu-ray, but there’s always a next time.
