Apple's New iMacs Will Start at £1149 in the UK

By - Source: Apple | B 9 comments

It's been a busy month for Apple. After the unveiling and launch of two brand new iPhones and the release of iOS 7, the company this week announced brand new Haswell-equipped iMacs. The iMacs are already available online and start at $1,299. In the UK, they're a bit pricier (no surprise there).

 

According to Apple's UK website, the 21.5-inch iMac is available with a 2.7 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.2 GHz and Intel Iris Pro will go for £1,149, while the upgraded model with a 2.9 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.6 GHz and Nvidia GeForce GT 750M graphics will go for £1,299.

Jumping up the 27-inch iMac, things start at £1,599 for a 3.2 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.6 GHz and Nvidia GeForce GTX 755M graphics. The 27-inch iMac equipped with a 3.4 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.8 GHz and Nvidia GeForce GTX 775M graphics carries a suggested retail price of £1,749.

All models sport 802.11ac WiFi, 8 GB of RAM as standard, a 1 TB hard drive, two Thunderbolt ports, and four USB 3.0 ports. Customers can also up the RAM to 32 GB and storage can be increased to 3 TB HDD (though this will, of course, cost you).

    Why spend that amount of money on a system when I can just invest that money in my own custom-built system, which completely demolishes that overpriced piece of trash?

    Cons29, EVERY OEM charges that much for ram. Go take a look at Dell and HP for RAM pricing when you upgrade during the build process. Acting like Apple is the only one that charges high prices is just ignoring everyone else.

    Id much rather buy one of these than a Dell/HP/etc. Every single system I have had from them for the past few years has been complete garbage (work machines, not personally bought).
