Apple to Start Shipping New iMacs Nov. 30
Apple today confirmed that its new iMac lineup will be available starting Nov. 30.
The 21.5-inch iMac will be on sale starting Friday via Apple.com, Apple Stores, and Apple re-sellers. The 27-inch version will also be available for pre-order that day, but won’t ship until next month.
At this point, the iMac site on Apple.com still says “Coming soon.”
Earlier this month, a French website reported that manufacturing problems would delay the launch of Apple’s new iMacs until next year. 9to5Mac, however, said the devices were still on track to ship by year’s end.
Apple unveiled the new iMacs at its October iPad mini event. The 21.5-inch iMac starts at $1,299, while the 27-inch will run you $1,799.
The 27-inch computer includes a 2,560-by-1,440 display, while the smaller machine boasts a 1,920-by-1,080 screen. Both have a FaceTime HD camera and dual microphones, with a headphone jack, SD card, three USB ports, Thunderbolt, and Gigbit Ethernet on the back. Both come with a wireless keyboard and wireless magic mouse.
