Apple’s All-in-one-Desktop computer, the iMac has been a bit of a forgotten child lately for the giants in Cupertino. The late time, it was updated was back in 2012 and since then there have been numerous events where an update was expected but did not happen. However, today, Apple has very quietly gone ahead and brought a new iMac. It is not the retina iMac that everyone has been expecting for a while. Instead, Apple has decided to make the iMac more affordable than ever and made the new model available for $1099.
This makes the new iMac $200 lower than the lowest selling iMac till today. The new iMac will have a slower Dual Core i5 processor, 8 GB of memory and 500 GB of HDD in built. The screen remains at 21.5 inches like the $1299 model. The cost cutting is understandable, and unless you really require a lot of power for memory intensive work, the new iMacs will surely interest you.
There have been rumors that Apple is working on a Retina version of iMac for a release later this year. This lower priced iMac is in sync with the recent Apple strategy, where they also dropped the pricing of the base model of the Macbook Air by $100 last month. If you are in the US, you can order the new iMac and will be shipped within the next 24 hours.
