iMac refreshed


By

Apple has announced that it has updated the all-in-one iMac product line with the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors, a faster 1066MHz FSB and optional nVidia GeForce 8800 GS graphics.

"The iMac's gorgeous aluminum and glass all-in-one design has been an incredible hit with our customers and is just one of the reasons Mac sales are growing three and a half times faster than PC sales," said Philip Schiller, senior vice president, worldwide product marketing. "With the latest Intel processors, a faster new graphics option and more memory, customers now have even more reasons to love the iMac."
