CNET First Look
Up close with Apple's 21.5-inch iMacApple refreshes the iMac with a new ultra-thin 5mm display. The 21.5-inch all-in-one model includes a 2.7GHz Core i5 chip, 8GB of memory, a GeForce GT 640 graphics chip, and a 1TB hard drive.
Hi. I'm Rich Brown for CNET. We're here at Apple's launch event and this is the 21.5-inch iMac. More or less it's the same as the older model, though it does have the new Ivy Bridge Intel CPU as well as most dramatically the new thin edge vessel. It's super thin that you can see it kinda tapers out to a thicker back part in the center, its' a really great looking system. Overall though, the [unk] is pretty much the same as the previous version of the iMac all-in-one. So the default version of the system will start with a core i5 CPU and it starts at 1299 when it ships November. So, I'm Rich Brown. This is the 12.5-inch iMac.
