New iMac (2009) Released, Unboxed, and Disassembled
We have been waiting on this new iMac for months and yesterday Apple announced some updates to it. While visually it looks the same as the previous generation the processor has received a minor update with a 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo available and the graphics have been updated to NVIDIA architecture with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 512MB. These minor upgrades do not lend to a major performance bump for processor performance but the NVIDIA graphics should give a nice boost for gfx performance.
Other Updates include the FireWire 400 being replaced by an extra USB (booooo) and a ridiculous keyboard. Where did the number pad go? Stupid or smart take our poll!
Pricing is around the same as the old version and you have four basic configurations which you can add features to when purchasing.
got their hands on a couple new iMacs and have provided a ton of nice pictures of the exterior/interior:
