Apple announced the new iMacs on October 23rd, but said at the time that they would be delayed until November, while the 27-inch models would be available in December. This being November 30th, the company hit its goal. The company iterated that schedule on November 27th.

The 21.5-inch model comes in two base configurations, a 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 for US$1,299, and a 2.9GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 for $1,499. Both models come with 8GB of RAM and a 1TB drive. The second configuration includes the option of ordering a Fusion Drive, as well.

Apple's 27-inch models start at $1,799 for a 2.9GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, while $1,999 will buy a 3.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i5. Both models include 8GB of RAM and a 1TB drive, and both have the Fusion Drive option, as well.

You can find the new iMac on the Apple Store now.

What about the back, is it also so thin?

Hi Will, we ran a piece about the back bulging in the middle the day the new iMacs were announced.  The edge is insanely thin, while the bulge holds all the stuff.


I got a 2-3 week ship time for the BTO 27” when I ordered it around noon EST. Your 3-4 week ship time I am guessing is because they were starting to get back logged on orders.
