Apple’s New iMac Is $200 Cheaper

Apple

The new all-in-one trims a few specs to hit $1,099 price tag

Apple just released a cheaper version of its iMac all-in-one computer, with a $1,099 price tag.

That’s $200 less than the previous baseline iMac, but it makes a couple of sacrifices to get there. The Intel Core i5 processor is a 1.4 GHz dual-core chip, compared to the 2.7 GHz quad-core chip in the $1,299 iMac, and it uses Intel HD 5000 graphics instead of Intel’s beefier Iris Pro integrated graphics. Storage space is also cut in half, from 1 TB to 500 GB.

A computer with those specs won’t be a gaming or graphic design powerhouse, but it should be good enough for everyday computing. If you’re keen on Apple’s software, build quality and design, but want to spend as little as possible, at least there’s an option for you now.
