That's right folks. This one is the big shocker. Hold your horses for this. I can't really explain it any better than the Apple guys so here it is:
Rev up your digital life at speeds twice as fast as the previous iMac. Intel Core Duo and iLife ’06 raise the bar — again — of what makes a personal computer so personal. Enjoy everything you love about iMac, only turbocharged, starting at $1299.
Intel Core Duo chip
Power has never been this much fun
No computer on earth makes it as easy to work with digital photos, movies, music and the web as iMac. And now it all happens with blazing speed — powered by the revolutionary Intel Core Duo. With two processors built onto a single chip, this new Intel engine kicks iMac performance up to a whole new level. Coupled with the new ATI Radeon X1600 graphics processor and the world’s most advanced operating system, Mac OS X, iMac will run all your software, fast.
It’s a wonderful iLife
iMac comes with iLife ’06, a suite of easy-to-use applications that make the spectacular part of your everyday life. Enhance, organize and share your photos via iPhoto. Make an epic starring your kid in iMovie. Turn your photo and movie creations into professional DVDs with iDVD. Create original music in GarageBand, even if you can’t carry a tune. Make podcasts and blogs. Then publish them online via your .Mac account and the all-new iWeb2.
Three-way iChat AV + iSight Camera
The ultimate see and say
There’s an iSight camera built into every new iMac, so you can start a video chat (or join one) at a moment’s notice. There’s nothing extra to buy3, nothing to attach, no cords to fumble with, no software to install or configure4. Simply start up iChat AV, click your buddy’s video icon and you’re ready to chat with sight and sound — with up to three friends at once5. Proper attire suggested.
Front Row + Apple Remote
With iMac, you’ve got the best seat in the house. The full-screen Front Row media experience — with its intuitive menus, large text and brilliant graphics — lets you browse the music, photos, and videos on your iMac as easily as you browse music on your iPod. And the new Apple Remote lets you do your browsing from anywhere in the room. So gather your friends and dazzle them with a slideshow of your vacation pics, a home movie or a DVD. iMac was born to entertain.
