21.5-inch iMacs available November 30


By

Apple promised new iMacs in November, and there will be on the final day of the month. Or at least you'll be able to order one.

The company announced that its smaller 21.5-inch iMac will be available to order November 30, while the 27-inch model is still on schedule for December. No specific date was giving for the larger desktop. Apple didn't indicate when it would actually ship, but likely there will be at least some inventory available in their physical stores. Those looking to build a custom design will have to wait until Friday.

The new iMac features an all-new design with Ivy Bridge CPUs, optional Fusion Drive, NVIDIA GeForce graphics, and USB 3.0.

The 21.5-inch iMac is available with a 2.7 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.2 GHz and NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M for a suggested retail price of $1,299 (US); and with a 2.9 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.6 GHz and NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M for a suggested retail price of $1,499 (US). The 27-inch iMac is available with a 2.9 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.6 GHz and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M for a suggested retail price of $1,799 (US); and with a 3.2 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.6 GHz and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX for a suggested retail price of $1,999 (US).
