Apple updates iMac with faster processors and more video memory
Apple has updated its all-in-one iMac line with the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors and the most powerful graphics ever available in an iMac.

With prices starting at US$1,199, the updated iMac includes faster processors with 6MB L2 cache and a faster 1066 MHz front-side bus across the entire line, and 2GB of memory standard in most models. The computer supports up to 4GB of 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM memory

iMac includes built-in AirPort Extreme 802.11n Wi-Fi networking; Bluetooth 2.1+EDR; Gigabit Ethernet; built-in iSight video camera; a total of five USB 2.0 ports (including two on the Apple Keyboard); and one FireWire 400 and one FireWire 800 port.

The 24-inch iMac now offers a 3.06 GHz Intel processor and the high-performance NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS 512 MB graphics as options.

“The iMac’s gorgeous aluminum and glass all-in-one design has been an incredible hit with our customers and is just one of the reasons Mac sales are growing three and a half times faster than PC sales,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “With the latest Intel processors, a faster new graphics option and more memory, customers now have even more reasons to love the iMac.”

Apple says it is commited to environmental progress and produced a computer with highly recyclable and durable materials including scratch-resistant glass and professional grade aluminum.

Every model in the iMac line is rated EPEAT Silver and the power-efficient iMac also meets the Energy Star 4.0 requirements for power consumption. Customers who purchase any qualifying Apple computer can recycle their old PC or Mac for free via the Apple Recycling Program in the U.S.

Every Mac in the Apple lineup comes with iLife ‘08, featuring a major new version of iPhoto and a completely new iMovie, both seamlessly integrated with the new .Mac Web Gallery for online photo and video sharing. Every Mac also includes Leopard operating system.
