Quad-Core 27″ iMac’s Now Shipping

iMac-27-inch-quad-coreJust a few weeks ago Apple [AAPL] launched a new range of iMac’s that have screen sizes of 21.5″ and 27″. A number of new configuration options were also announced which includes a new Core i5 and i7 quad-core Intel processor. Although lower spec models have already been shipping, we now hear that the quad-core versions have also started to ship.

Putting a more powerful processor in your new iMac isn’t cheap though. For the standard spec quad-core (Core i5) the cost is $1999 which of course can further increase if you decide to go for more than the standard 4GB of RAM. If you opt for the Core i7 then add another $200 to the base cost of the machine.

Although very pricey you have to admit they look rather good! Each of the iMac’s is capable of holding up to 16GB of RAM and have a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 and are backlit by LED making the screen vibrant in colour. Storage isn’t lacking either on the iMac with the option of a 1TB or 2TB Serial ATA drive.

If you were waiting for them to start shipping then you should receive it in the next few days.

Available from Apple, or MacMall.
