Apple revamps imacs

I’m no Mac user but I know many and more people are loving the PC alternative. Apple has been keen on making flashy new innovations and they have definitely proved their capability to do just that with the iPod and iPhone. The iMac and MacBook have had their fair share of success and currently enjoy a safe and snugh 2nd place slot below the PC.

Today, quietly, Apple revamped their line of iMacs. The new iMacs which are available from Apple stores are now sporting new, faster processors but the don’t cost a penny more than the old ones last week.

Acually I’ve no idea what the old iMacs were sporting in them but they sure do look great.  Which by the way is another plus when getting an iMac, it makes a great centerpiece for your desk.
