iMacs and Minis get upgraded

Today Apple announced new versions of its iMac and Mac Mini lines.

The iMacs were fitted with the new Intel Core 2 Duo processor running at speeds of 1.83GHZ, 2.0GHz, 2.16GHz, and 2.33GHz, and come in new sizes of 17″, 20″, and a whopping 24″. One item to note is that they dropped the remote as standard equipment on the 17″ model. Base configurations range from $999 – $1999 (USD)

The Mac Mini updates were a little more subtle, but still welcome. Apple dropped the Intel Core Solo processor altogether, and now both models run the Core Duo (not the Core 2 Duo). They also received a small speed bump from 1.5GHZ/1.66GHz to 1.66GHz/1.83GHz. Pricing remained the same at $599 and $799 (USD).

I guess we can retire these rumors for next weeks event.

  1. The reason the remote is not present on the lower end, is because it’s very simular to the education iMac. That one also did not come with a remote because it’s geared toward educational intitutions.
