Good news would-be iMac customers in the US! While customers in other parts of the world may have already been unboxing and tearing down the new 21.5” iMac, it looks like it is finally our turn as the order page for the 21.5” iMac on Apple’s website has gone live. There will two default models offered, one clocked at 2.7GHz and the other at 2.9GHz and according to the shipping estimates, they should be good to go in 1-3 business days. However if reports are to believed, supply constraints are expected until 2013 so if you’re still on the fence regarding the new iMacs, perhaps you should decide quickly lest you find yourself at the end of an extremely long waiting line.
The basic 21.5” model starts at $1,299 and will feature an Intel Core i5 quad-core processor, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M with 512MB of VRAM. If 21.5” isn’t big enough, the new 27” iMac models are up for pre-order although you can probably expect to have them delivered sometime in December. So, any takers?
