It’s pretty, but pricey, and it’s available for order today.
It speeds things up if you can memorize your credit card number.
Same design, double the resolution of the current 27″ iMac. No such love for the 21.5″ model.

Just last month, Apple revealed a 21.5-inch iMac for the low cost of $1,000. Now, judging from an image on the Apple support page, it seems the company could be gearing up for a refreshed 27-inch iMac release. Though details are sketchy, this large-screened desktop computer could be available on the market sometime in the near future.
There’s a right height for your monitor, and your iMac or Cinema Display may not be at it. Adjusting your chair to hit it can leave you sitting uncomfortably, but staring down or up at your monitor can hurt your posture. The solution is a monitor stand. I’ve used and reviewed a few here at AppleTell, most of which concerned themselves with either looked good sitting under Apple products or with providing additional functionality. The UNITI Stand, now on Kickstarter, seems concerned with both.
Apple has launched its Back to School Promotion as the school year shopping season kicks-off. Students who purchase Mac models (except the Mac mini) are eligible to receive a $100 gift card, while iPad and iPhone buyers are entitled to a $50 gift card.
I’m surprised by the amount of disdain that’s been generated by Apple’s release of a new, entry-level iMac this week, priced at $1,099. That’s an unprecedented low water mark for iMac pricing since the model was introduced back in 1998. The catch is that the new iMac is basically an entry-level MacBook Air in desktop clothing.
Apple has officially launched the new entry-level 21.5-inch 1.4GHz iMac with a starting price of $1,099. While the physical and general desktop configurations remain untouched, specifications were modified under the hood. It is powered by 1.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i5, Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz with a 8GB memory, 500 GB hard drive, and Intel HD Graphics 5000.
We’ve seen a few rumors about the possibility of an updated iMac with Retina display. Some signs of the machine were even found in the OS X Yosemite, but nothing is confirmed when it comes to Apple products until it comes from the company itself. Keeping that in mind, according to a new report from MacGeneration, Apple will release updated iMacs by the end of next week. The publication has predicted correctly in the past, so we have a reason to believe they may be correct this time as well.
There is now an overwhelming number of reports and rumors surrounding the much needed and desired iMac update, and it seems more likely the next iMac with come with a Retina display. Included in the OS X Yosemite beta is a file that details resolution scaling for the operating system, and included in that file are references to an iMac in conjunction with the Retina display resolution.
I’m big on the proper placement of a monitor. Next to getting a decent chair, it’s the most important aspect to setting up my workstation; a couple of inches up or down can make a major difference in how long I can comfortably work (or play) on my iMac. As such, I’ve had many monitor stands in my day, and one of the most useful I’ve ever tried is the Satechi F1 Smart Monitor Stand.
