Apple has updated its iMac line, beefing up the systems with Radeon HD 2400 XT and 2600 Pro graphics and Core 2 Duo processors between 2.0 and 2.8GHz. These upgrades come wrapped in a new aluminum and glass enclosure that eschews the sterile whiteness of previous iMac designs. The systems will also come with a new keyboard that's significantly thinner than previous Apple designs.
The new iMac line will include three models at $1199, $1499, and $1799. Here's a quick rundown of what you get with each:
|Display||20" 1680x1050||20" 1680x1050||24" 1900x1200|
|Processor||Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz||Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz||Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz|
|Hard drive||250GB SATA||320GB SATA||320GB SATA|
|Graphics||Radeon HD 2400 XT||Radeon HD 2600 Pro||Radeon HD 2600 Pro|
All three systems come with 1GB of memory and an 8X SuperDrive. A 2.8GHz Core 2 Duo will apparently only be available as a configuration option.
