Apple Launches The Next-generation iMac

Apple have just launched its first redesign to its iMac desktop in over three years. The new iMacs have taken the leap to Intel’s Ivy Bridge Core i5 and Core i7 chips, making it a serious replacement for the 2009-era model. It’s also super thin compared to the old ones, its edges are just 5mm thick, and it’s constructed with what’s called “friction stir welding” as has as a gapless, less reflective display that’s laminated together with the glass.

Screen sizes haven’t changed at all the same sizes are still available the 21.5-inch, 1080p model and a 27-inch, 2,560 x 1,400 model.  They both have 720p-capable front cameras with dual mics as well as NVIDIA’s GeForce 600 graphics processors, and can come with up to 32GB of RAM and storage options up to  3TB of hard drive storage, but the new thing here is the 768GB SSD or what Apple calls a Fusion Drive that combines 128GB of flash with 1TB or 3TB of conventional storage . They have removed the optical drive so you will need an external one to utilize your cds and dvds.
