Apple Introduces New iMacs [Update]

by , 1:05 PM EDT, August 7th, 2007

All of the models feature 1 GB of SDRAM, expandable up to 4 GB (a new high capacity for the iMac line), and can house up to 1 Terabyte of hard disk storage.

Apple also made the decision to only offer glossy screens in the new iMacs.
