Apple has announced that its latest iMac desktop will be available for purchase as of November 30th.
Announced back in October, the new iMac desktops are available in 21.5-inch and 27-inch versions and feature a much slimmer design, spiced up with new Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs and Nvidia Geforce 600 series graphics. The new iMac versions will feature (as an option) Apple's new Fusion Drive, or simply a hybrid drive with 128GB SSD and 1TB or 3TB HDD combination "fused together with software".
The 27-inch version features a 2560x1440 screen while the smaller 21.5-inch will have to stick with 1920x1080 resolution.
The price kicks off at US $1,299 for the 21.5-inch model and features a 2.7GHz Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and 1TB HDD, while 27-inch one starts at US $1,799 and includes a 2.9 GHz Core i5 CPU and the same amount of RAM and storage.
The 21.5-inch model will be available immediately on November 30th, while the 27-inch one will only be available for pre-order on November 30th with shipping scheduled "later in December".
