New iMacs Now Available for Order in the U.S. via Apple's Online Store
It looks like unlocked iPhone 5s
aren’t the only Apple products going on sale today as the Cupertino California company begins to accept orders for the new iMac in their online store as well. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it already, the new iMacs offer dramatically reduced thickness and add a brand new Fusion Drive that combines flash storage and a traditional disk-based hard drive to maximize both speed and capacity.
As far as the price goes, the 21.5” model starts at $1,299 and $1,499 while the 27” model starts at $1,799 and $1,999. When it comes to shipping, the 21.5” model has a shipping-in time of “1-3 business days” while the 27” model has a shipping-in time of “2-3 weeks.” It should also be noted that the 21.5” iMacs are currently limited in stock so if you planned on getting one, you best do it sooner rather than later. There also seem to be some iMac build-to-order options that offer a variety of RAM, Processor, Hard Drive and Graphics Card upgrades that are available for specific models.
As mentioned before, if you were planning on getting one of the new iMacs for yourself, a family member, or a friend for the holiday season, you may want to jump on the supply while it lasts in order to ensure you get it in time. We all know those empty boxes with pictures of products don’t make good presents for the holidays so don’t end up being the lame gift-giver.
