Apple unveils sleek new iMacIt's slimmer and cheaper than its predecessors

09 August 2007

Apple has unveiled a new slimmer version of its iMac computer featuring a sleek aluminium design.

It comes with either a 20 or 24-inch widescreen display and features the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors and a new, ultra-thin aluminium keyboard that is just 0.33 inches thin at its front edge

Apple says the all-in one design of the iMac provides ‘a striking, clutter-free desktop.’

Recyclable materials

Apple CEO Steve Jobs said: ‘This new iMac is the most incredible desktop computer we've ever made.

‘Our new design features the innovative use of materials, including professional-grade aluminium and glass, which are highly recyclable.’

Every iMac also includes iLife 08, Apple’s revamped suite of digital lifestyle applications which features new versions of iPhoto and iMovie.

The iPhoto software now boasts an 'Events' feature, which sorts downloaded photos by date, while Apple says the iMovie feature has been completely reinvented so that users can make movies in minutes instead of hours.

Computing Which?

The 20-inch iMac costs from £799 and the 24-inch iMac starts at £1,349. Both are available through Apple’s online store, Apple’s retail stores and authorised resellers.

Which? computer expert Lisa Barber said: 'We hope that Apple's latest iMacs aren't just a pretty face and prove themselves to be just as good as the company's laptops, which did very well in a recent Computing Which? test.'
