Apple's new 21.5-inch iMac

Apple has launched a new entry level 21.5-inch iMac starting at €1,129 that comes with Core i5 processors and a new ultra-thin design.

The new 21.5-inch iMac features a 1.4 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor with Turbo Boost Speeds up to 2.7 GHz, Intel HD 5000 graphics, 8GB of memory and a 500GB hard drive.

Configure-to-order options include a 1TB hard drive, a 1TB Fusion Drive, and up to 256 GB flash storage.

All iMac models include next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi, wo Thunderbolt ports and four USB 3.0 ports for excellent expandability and support for high-performance peripherals.

The entry level desktop comes with software that includes iWork productivity apps and iLife editing apps, such as iMovie, iPhoto and GarageBand.

The move comes just weeks after Apple unveiled its new Mac OS X Yosemite operating system, which will be free to download from the Mac App Store this autumn.
