Apple releases budget-oriented iMac AIO computer

The popular US maker of computers and portable devices Apple has officially released a budget-oriented version of its iMac all-in-one (AIO) computer. The new company product quite naturally targets people who want to have an iMac but do not want to spend a fortune on it.

To reach a lower price, though, Apple has equipped the new iMac with less powerful hardware. Expect to get a 21.5-inch display that hides a dual-core Intel Core i5-4260U processor at 1.4 GHz (2.7 GHz in Turbo Mode) with Hyper-Threading technology enabled, Intel HD Graphics 5000 in the chip itself, a 500 GB hard drive and 8 GB DDR3 SDRAM. The remaining tech specs are the same as in the “original” iMac AIO PC.

The sad news is that Apple has soldered the RAM memory on the motherboard itself, which means that you are stuck with 8 GB of DDR3-1600 memory and you cannot upgrade it. Fortunately some other iMac components can be improved – a 1 TB hard drive will cost you USD 50 more, for USD 250 you can get a 1 TB Fusion Drive, while the same amount of money will get you a 256 GB SSD.

The new iMac sells now online for USD 1099. If you happen to live in the United States you can expect to get it within 24 hours after your online order.
