An updated iMac page on Apple’s online store says that their new 27-inch iMac orders will be taken into account soon and that the devices will be shipped within 3-4 weeks after ordering. This means that the delivery could take place somewhere around the middle of next month.
Last month the company said that the iMacs would start shipping in January 2013, although they don’t say anything of that sort anymore. Since we haven’t seen any iMacs in the market so far this month, and going by the updated page, February looks to be the month when new orders will land.
The 27-inch iMac comes in two variants depending on the processor. One model contains 2.9GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5, while the second one carries 3.2GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 processor.
Both of these will be equipped with 8GB memory (coupling of two 4GBs) and 1TB hard drive. The 2.9GHz model would be sporting Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M with 512MB, whereas the 3.2GHz will pack Nvidia GeForce GTX 675MX with 1GB.
The 2.9GHz iMac would be shipping with a price tag starting at $1,799, while the 3.2GHz will carry a price tag starting at $1,999. Those who are inclined to have a bit of gaming experience would do well to go with the 3.2GHz model, although the price may be a bit on the heavy end.
Apple said that the shipment of their 21.5-inch models would continue to roll within 7-10 business days.
