21.5-inch: Apple’s entry level iMac

Apple has taken a step ahead in introducing its range of iMac for masses. This time the technology giant has come out with a little more affordable iMac. The company quietly launched a new, lower-price entry model 21.5-inch iMac for the range of its all-in-one desktop computers.

Available in a new configuration, a 21.5-inch iMac from Apple starts at $1099 and it has a 1.4GHz dual-core Core i5 processor along with a Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz. The iMac is also available in the following specifications: http://mac-technical-support.com

  • Standard with 8GB of RAM.
  • 500GB hard drive.
  • Integrated Intel HD Graphics 5000 chip.
  • Four USB3.0 ports.
  • Two Thunderbolt ports.
  • 11ac wireless networking.

The new entry level iMac also has few storage build-to-order choices: a 1TB hard drive for $50, 256GB of flash storage for $250, and a 1TB Fusion Drive for $250.


Other iMac configurations are left unchanged like previous versions of iMac and the new model is available with a price cut which is also the cheapest model. The earlier 2.7GHz version was up for sale at $1299. This price tag was the lowest one since the iMac was introduced. With a sharp cut in the price of the entry level model, it is presumed that Apple is trying to penetrate the market and planning to make its computers more accessible to the lower-end of the market. This type of strategy that the company doesn’t usually employs. Possibly, it will open way for redesigned machines of future. iMac® Technical Support | Apple® iMac Helpline
