On Wednesday, Apple introduced a new low-end 21.5" iMac
for the subsidized price tag of just $1099. Apple continues to offer a higher-end 21.5" iMac, as well as a 27.5" iMac in their product line.
It would appear that the slash in the price comes with a major slash in performance. Geekbench benchmark tests of the new low-end 21.5" iMac are indicating that multi-core benchmarks are scoring up to 40%
