New iMacs with quad-core processors and Thunderbolt available from S$1,648

Apple has updated its iMacs with quad-core processors, new AMD Radeon HD graphics processors, Thunderbolt I/O technology and a new HD-capable camera. The new iMacs start at S$1,648.

They use quad-core Intel Core i5 processors with an option for customers to choose Core i7 processors up to 3.4 GHz.

The 21.5-inch iMac has a single Thunderbolt port while the 27-inch model has two ports. Thunderbolt offers two bi-directional channels with transfer speeds up to 10Gbps each. Thunderbolt delivers PCI Express directly to external high performance peripherals such as RAID arrays, and can support FireWire and USB consumer devices, and Gigabit Ethernet networks via adapters. Thunderbolt also supports DisplayPort for high resolution displays and works with existing adapters for HDMI, DVI and VGA displays.

The iMacs also come with an SD card slot and a choice of Apple’s Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad.

The 21.5-inch iMac is available in two configurations: one with a 2.5 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, AMD Radeon HD 6750M and 500GB hard drive for a suggested retail price of S$1,648; while the other has a 2.7 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, AMD Radeon HD 6770M and 1TB hard drive for a suggested retail price of S$2,048.

The new 27-inch iMac is available in two models: one with a 2.7 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, AMD Radeon HD 6770M and 1TB hard drive for a suggested retail price of S$2,348; and one with a 3.1 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, AMD Radeon HD 6970M and 1TB hard drive for a suggested retail price of S$2,748.
