Razor thin iMac and Mac Mini arrive to boot Windows 8 off your desktop!
Apple’s not just slimmed down the new 13-inch MacBook Pro: it’s revamped its desktop Mac computers too. The Mac Mini’s had a welcome refresh with all new innards, but it’s the new Mac Mini that really stands out: it’s as thin as the first iPad. Yes, really.
The new iMac is just 5mm thick at the edges, and looks even more like its MacBook Pro aluminium siblings than ever before. The 27-inch model boasts a sharp 2560×1440 screen, while the 21.5-inch model has a very respectable full HD resolution. You can also choose a new Fusion Drive, which comes as one drive, but keeps the software on a speedy flash drive, and intelligently keeps your less used media on a much bigger (but slower) hard drive. Every model comes with a huge 1TB of storage as standard – enough for thousands of movies or TV shows.
Alongside this, Apple’s rejigged the Mac Mini. The price stays the same, but inside you now get one of the newest Intel Core processors, plus up to 16GB of RAM for major multi-tasking and Bluetooth 4.0 for syncing with all the latest mobile accessories.
Intrigued? The new iMac won’t be shipping until November, but you’ll be able to pick one up starting at £1,099 for the 21.5-inch model, and £1,499 for the larger 27.5-inch model. The new Mac mini goes on sale now starting at £499.
In the meantime let us know what you make of them in the comments below. Windows 8? What’s that now?
