Νέος πιο οικονομικός iMac 21.5″ με διπύρηνο επεξεργαστή στο 1.4GHz

Οι φήμες περί κυκλοφορίας ενός νέου πιο οικονομικού iMac επιβεβαιώθηκαν -εν μέρει- μόνο που αντί να κυκλοφορήσει ένα νέο μοντέλο με αναβαθμισμένα χαρακτηριστικά η Apple επέλεξε να διαθέσει στην αγορά μια πιο low-end έκδοση του 21.5 iMac.

Το νέο μοντέλο θα διαθέτει 1.4GHz dual-core i5 επεξεργαστή (με Turbo Boost μέχρι 2.7GHz),  αποθηκευτικό χώρο 500GB (και επιλογές για 1ΤΒ, 1ΤΒ Fusion ή 256 Flash) , 8GB RAM και κάρτα γραφικών Intel HD Graphics 5000.  Όσο για την τιμή του, στις ΗΠΑ διαμορφώνεται στα $1099 (το αμέσως επόμενο μοντέλο κοστίζει $1299) ενώ για την Ευρώπη δεν υπάρχει μέχρι στιγμής επίσημη ενημέρωση. Τα υπόλοιπα μοντέλα iMac στις 21.5″ και 27″ θα συνεχίσουν να υφίστανται κανονικά στην αγορά.
