As expected, Apple today took the wraps off their new iMac models, and boy do they look slick. The new models will come in 20-inch and 24-inch versions, and will offer all of the capabilities that you’d want in an all-in-one computer.
Today is a big day for Apple enthusiasts, with speculation at an all time high for new hardware from the darlings of Silicon Valley. Rumors have been flying around for some time ranging from the iPhone, to the iTV, to new touch screen iPods, to a truly portable Mac.
Not to be outdone by Apple’s iMac personal computers, HP has finally announced their much anticipated all-in one system, the HP TouchSmart.
The first system in the series is the TouchSmart IQ770, featuring a fast, dual-core AMD Turion 64-X2 TL-52 CPU, 2GB of DDR RAM, a 320 GB hard drive and a SuperMulti DVD burner with LightScribe capability.
According to a forums posting on MacRumors, one of their members came across an interesting surprise on his new iMac:
The user claims he took this photo on his iMac Core 2 Duo, when he installed and ran Windows Vista RC1 on the machine.
With no advance hoopla, Apple has quietly announced the new 24-inch iMac today.
The new model features a substantial widescreen display running at 1900×1200 resolution, a 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, a 250 GB hard drive, and 1 GB of RAM for $1999.00.
