Apple Updates iMac

28 04 2008
The New iMac
As anticipated, the iMac lineup has been “refreshed” with new speed bumps, memory, and graphics cards. Sporting the latest and greatest Core 2 Duo Penryn processors, the new iMac models should be speedier and cooler than their predecessors.

Ranging from 2.4 GHz up to 3.06 GHz, the current lineup is priced at $ 1,199 to $2,199 respectively. Apple is still offering a 20-inch model and a 24-inch model.
There are some configuration options as well. You can add up to 4GB or RAM, choose a 1TB Hard drive, and pick the latest NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS with 512MB memory, which is the most powerful graphics ever available on the all-in-one desktop line.

Current iMac Standard Configuration Options

These models are set to be available in Kuwait in about a Month or so, and they will be offering the Keyboards in both Arabic and English. All four models should be available.
