The After Mac

Apple Launches New iMacs

by Juan on August 8th, 2007

Several days ago images leaked on the internet claimed to be spy shots of the iMac. This was one of them.

A mock up of the iMac was also created. This was it.

The mock up was a wee bit closer to the real thing.

Finally August 7, 2007 came and Apple released the all new iMac. Thinner and more powerful than the previous generation. Instead of keeping the white plastic theme that has long adorned the iMac, they replaced it with aluminum and glass. Citing reasons that it’s more environment friendly as well as higher quality materials.

Here’s the real thing.

The 17″ model is also gone replaced by an entry level 20″ iMac model. The high-end still sports a 24″ display. Together with the new iMac comes a new keyboard design. It’s also a lot thinner than the previous keyboard and shares the same type of keypad design as the MacBook.

My thoughts on the new iMac? I love design. It’s not perfect but it’s a great design nonetheless. I’ve always loved aluminum as opposed to plastic. I love the new keyboard although my opinion of it is still not set in stone. I’ll need to test it out to form a concrete and definite opinion. I do however love the wireless keyboard more than the wired. I’m not a fan of clutter so anything to minimize it, I love.

The new iMacs comes in 2 sizes with 2 configurations each.

1. 20″ 2.0 Ghz Core 2 Duo with 1GB Ram, 250 GB HD and 128 MB VRAM priced at $1,199
2. 20″ 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo with 1GB Ram, 320 GB HD and 256 MB VRAM priced at $1,499
3. 24″ 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo with 1GB Ram, 320 GB HD and 256 MB VRAM priced at $1,799
4. 24″ 2.8 Ghz Core 2 Duo with 2GB Ram, 500 GB HD and 256 MB VRAM priced at $2,299
