New Apple iMacs unveiled with Thunderbolt technology

Apple refresh iMac range with quad-core processors and Thunderbolt technology

Apple has officially unveiled the new breed of iMac computers with the popular all-in-one device to tout quad-core processors and the new high-speed Thunderbolt I/O connection port.

Confirming recent rumours of an iMac refresh Apple has confirmed that its flagship desktop computers are to be on the receiving end of a specs overhaul adding powerful new graphics and a FaceTime HD camera to the luxurious machines.

Maintaining its 21.5- and 27-inch form factors the new iMacs are to come with Intel’s quad-core i5 processing chips as standard with new AMD Radeon graphics processors reportedly offering three times the performance of previous models.

Following in the footsteps of the latest generation MacBook Pro machines the new era of iMacs are to become the first desktop devices to sport the ultra high-speed Thunderbolt I/O technology. Whilst the 21.5-inch iMacs are to feature a single Thunderbolt port, its 27-inch siblings are to tout two of the fast transferring sockets.

The new range of all-in-one iMacs are available today with the 21.5-inch Apple iMac ready to buy from just £999 equipped with a 2.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, AMD Radeon HD 6750M and 500GB hard drive. A second 21.5-inch model is available with a 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, AMD Radeon HD 6770M and 1TB hard drive priced £1249.

The two 27-inch offerings are to start at £1399 for a 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 offering with AMD Radeon HD 6770M graphics and a 1TB hard drive and are rounded off by the hefty £1649 device that is to boast a 3.1GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, AMD Radeon HD 6970M graphics and a 1TB hard drive.
