Apple’s redesigned iMac to go on sale this week
Apple latest version of its popular iMac desktop computer, which has undergone a complete design overhaul, goes on sale in Australia from November 30.
Apple promised a November release and, despite the rumours the product’s shipping date could possibly slip to next year, has made it on the last day of the month.
Only the 21.5-inch iMac will be available from Friday with the highly anticipated 27-inch model due for release in December.
The computer has been redesigned with an edge that’s just 5mm thick along 40 per cent less volume than the previous model.
The new iMac has also done away with the DVD optical drive to help maintain its svelte looks and reduced size.
Another new feature is the Fusion Drive which is able to combine the faster performance of flash memory with the storage capacity of a regular hard drive in a single volume.
New screen technology has also been introduced on the new iMac which will reduce reflection by up to 75 per cent.
The entry-level 21.5-inch iMac has a 2.7Ghz quad core Intel Core i5 processor and a 1TB hard drive with a starting price of $1,429.
The 27-inch model will start at $1,999 and the entry level model will include a 2.9Ghz quad core Intel Core i5 processor.
