New Skinny iMacs Go On Sale In Australia On November 30

It looks like those new skinny iMacs will be arriving in time for Christmas after all: Apple has just announced that the newest version of its popular desktop computer will go on sale this Friday.

The new iMacs were announced in September and boasts a 5mm thin profile in either 21.5-inch or 27-inch models. Apple says the latter won't be available until December, but the smaller of the two will be available to buy from Apple's online store, retail stores and resellers on Friday.

The base 21.5-inch model comes with a 2.7GHz quad-core processor, 1920x1080 resolution display, 8GB of RAM and 1TB hard drive for $1429. The 27-inch iMac starts at $1999 and comes with a 2.9GHz quad-core processor, 2560x1440 resolution display, 8GB of RAM and 1TB hard drive.

The Fusion Drive we've all heard so much about comes at an additional cost, and you can make your own configurations by bumping up the RAM, hard drive capacity and processor. The 27-inch model also comes with a flash storage option. They all come with four USB 3.0 ports, two Thunderbolt ports and Mountain Lion.

Now you just have to figure out whether you can afford to have one as well as a Wii U, which hit shelves on the same day. Decisions, decisions. [Apple]

    big week for foxconn then!

    I agree, I thought it was the most deceitful part of the keynote address.
    Remove the optical drive on the previous iMac and you could almost file the edges back to the same thinness. It is a lovely machine, but how thin the edge is shouldn't be the most highlighted point.

    gives us a side view. i dare you.

      bow chicka wow wow

    Give them a break they had to hire a lot of extra children to make this ;p

    First time I've seen this slim model. I presume they're not gaming powerhouses for that price?

      There is no such thing as a Mac Gaming powerhouse I doubt there ever will be.

    this is not a realistic computer body image.

    But will it blend ?

    It looks nice, if only i bought my computer for its looks.. browsing my steam library would look fantastic on that screen.. shame none of the games would work

    Nice. I don't understand why they stuck with the chin though... Surely a bit of extra thickness somewhere would be a thousand percent better than that ugly chin hanging off the monitor?
    Their design team has either a blind spot over that thing or a real hard-on for it.

      But then where would you put the apple logo on the front?!? Let's remember our priorities!
