Apple go cheap with new iMac
They've added an iMac to their product line which will cost you £899 ($1,099), which is cheaper than the rest of their offerings, but not exactly something you could buy on a whim once the direct debits have come out of your account at the start of the month.
So what's under the hood?
Apple say that it'll have a 21.5-inch display with 1.4GHz dual-core Core i5, a 500GB hard drive, and Intel HD Graphics 5000 hardware. It'll have 802.11ac WiFi and Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 ports, but, with 8GB of RAM soldered hard to the motherboard, you won't be able to beef it up. There's pictures of that here.
This is something of a turnaround for Apple.
Once upon a time, Steve Jobs said that they wouldn't go cheap(er) because "we don't know how to make a $500 computer that's not a piece of junk." Of course, this isn't a $500 computer, but apply some inflation and it's as good as.
Fancy one, or is it worth just saving up for a proper one?
