Apple announces quad-core processor iMacs, beginning from Rs 64,900

Apple has refreshed its iMac desktop computer range, pumping up the gigahertz with some hefty quad core processing muscle, and throwing in some extra specs as well. The new iMac range comes with quad-core Intel Core i5 processors, with users having the option to go for Core i7 processors upto 3.4 GHz. There are also new AMD Radeon HD graphics processors, which enables Apple in its typically understated manner to claim that "the new iMac has the most powerful graphics ever in an all-in-one desktop." Also on board is the Thunderbolt I/O technology seen in the recent MacBook Pro notebooks - the 21.5-inch iMac has a single Thunderbolt port while the 27-inch model features two ports. There's also a built-in FaceTime HD camera backed which supports high definition video calls between all FaceTime HD-enabled Macs and standard resolution calls with iPad 2, iPhone 4, the current generation iPod touch and other Intel-based Macs. All this in the by-now-customary aluminum and glass build, with a high resolution display, and Apple's Magic Trackpad and Mouse twosome. The OS, however, remains Snow Leopard as of now.  Prices begin at Rs 64,900 Inc VAT (Rs 61,809.52 Ex VAT). For more specifications and pricing details as per the press release, read on. More →
