Since Apple computers tend to lean more towards the expensive side, it is understandable that most schools might prefer to go with a PC instead. However it looks like Apple is still interested in appealing to educational institutions and has since quietly updated their educational iMac model. This is a 21.5″ iMac and it is priced at $1,099, a good $200 cheaper than the regular iMac which is available for consumers. Granted this is slightly more expensive than its previous model introduced 18 months ago at $999, it does feature some updated specs that hopefully will be good enough to get the job done in schools. So what can education institutions expect from this updated model? Well for starters they can look forward to an Intel Core i3 processor clocked at 3.3GHz, a 1920×1080 Full HD display, 4GB of RAM, 500GB of HDD and an Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU. It’s a very basic model so don’t expect too much, but it looks like it should be more than capable of dealing with the needs of schools/colleges.
