Apple has announced that the newly redesigned iMac will go up for sale in India on November 30 starting at Rs 85,900. The new redesigned iMac features a super slim industrial design which has a 27-inch display that offers 75 percent less reflection than the previous model. Apple says that the new product will start shipping from December onwards.

The base model starts with a 21.5-inch display that is powered by an Intel core i5 quad-core processor that is clocked at 2.7GHz, 8GB of RAM, an Nvidia GeForce 640M GPU and a 1TB hard drive. The model costs Rs 99,900 and  features a 2.9GHz Intel Core i5 quad-core CPU, 1TB of RAM, 8GB of RAM and an Nvidia FeForce 650M GPU. The new 27-inch model has a base configuration that has a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels, an Intel Core i5 procesoor with quad-cores clocked at 2.9GHz along with an Nvidia GeForce 660M GPU. This model costs Rs 1,22,900. The top-end model iMac flaunts the same 27-inch panel with the ultra high 2560×1440 pixel resolution, but this time around Apple couples it with an Intel Core i5 quad-core CPU clocked at 3.2GHz and  adds the Nvidia GeForce 675M GPU.

Apple is also offering customers to install that ‘Fusion Drive’ which is a hybrid of a standard Hard Disk (HDD) and an Solid State Drive (SSD). Apple has tuned the drive in such a way that OS X automatically installs files and programs on the faster SSD module and keeps heavy duty data on the standard spacey HDD. The Fusion drive combines a normal HDD with a 128GB SSD.

      It might be slightly more, but nothing as exaggerated as what you’re making it out to be. The rupee has depreciated very sharply since the last iMac was released. Apple didn’t change their pricing when it did, so they finally had to make a correction at the time of the new release.

      Also, dont just look at the rupee conversion. You aren’t taking into account the import duty, and the included sales tax in the final price. Given the state of the Rupee recently, Apple also has to keep a buffer for itself in case the rupee depreciates further. I don’t agree with some of their decisions (The iPhone is priced higher than it should be), but I have trouble finding too much fault with this.

        Yes i was expecting an increase in price of about 10k for the same reasons. Do note that these prices don’t even include VAT. So the base variant goes up to 97k !! Well ?
