Apple’s iMac Line Updated, New Core i3 Added to Low-End Machines

July 27, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

There have been some rumors going around lately that Apple are planning on doing something with their iMac line, but nothing solid – until now. The iMacs have finally been updated for the first time in quite a while, with the last update being just under a year ago. The new specifications include a selection of Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors, as well as ATI Radeon HD cards for video rendering.

Other improvements include IPS panels, a SD card slot that even supports SDXC, as well as the option of getting the computer with a SSD (which is becoming quite popular lately). The recently revealed Magic Trackpad however won’t be included with the computers by default as some of us expected, and will instead come as an extra accessory for the price of $69.

One of the great improvements to the pricing scheme is giving customers the ability to order a machine with a combination of SSD and a standard HDD, which admittedly does cost quite a lot, but it should give you terrific performance and storage capabilities if you require both.
