MWNY: Apple Unveils New 17'' iMac
10:59 AM | Chris Barylick | Comment on this story
Apple Compter today introduced an expanded iMac with better hardware hardware acceleration and screen real estate that will almost certainly provide a better gaming experience. Amid a relevant but somewhat less-than-thrilling MacWorld keynote speech that seemed a bit devoid of major announcements such as new hardware, Steve Jobs pulled his "one last thing" manuever towards the end of his keynote, the iMac stealing the show as it slowly rose out of the stage floor on its own black pedastal.
Similar to the current iMacs with the rounded base and the swivel LCD screen, the new iMac sports a 17" screen with a surprisingly high 1440 x 900 pixel display ability, 256 MB of RAM, 80 GB hard drive, a G4 processor and an nVidia GeForce 4 MX graphics card with 32 MB of DDR video memory.
In addition to the new iMac, current Mac prices fell $100 on current iMacs, the low end selling for $1,399, the mid-level iMacs selling for $1,599 and $1,799 while the new 17" iMac retails for $1,999.
As the keynote ended, the Apple Store came online with the newest offerings, orders now being accepted and due to ship in two weeks time.
