With it's larger 16:9 displays, Apple's new iMac is steadily becoming a replacement for your TV. It can even support HDMI through its DisplayPort on the back. Talking of the back, the black plastic has been replaced with a fully aluminium, seamless enclosure. The glass front stretches from edge to edge and the resolution of the 27" display is well beyond HD with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution. The speakers have been tweaked to deliver louder, clearer sound with better bass response and less distortion. The iMacs now come wireless, with the shorter wireless keyboard (no numerical pad) and gorgeous new multi-touch Magic Mouse. So, the only cable you need is the power cord.
There are four configurations, starting with the 21.5" 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM, 500GB HD, 8x double-layer SuperDrive and NVidia GeForce 9400M 256MB graphics card, all for £949 and is available now. The top-of-the-range iMac is a 27"Quad-Core, 2.66GHz Intel Core i5 with 4GB RAM, 1TB HD. 8X double-layer SuperDrive and a ATI Radeon HD 4850 512MB graphics card. This configuration is £1599 and ships in November.
Of course, if money is no object, you can max this out with a 2.6 Quad-Core i7 processor with 16GB of RAM and a 2TB HD, which pushes the cost up to a whopping £3078.99. Bring it on!
