For an event that was expected to be focused on the iPad mini, we saw quite a bit in terms of computers. Apple unveiled a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display and also updated the Mac Mini and iMac lineups. We just told you about the Mac Mini updates, now lets shift focus to the iMac.

The iMac lineup will feature a 21.5-inch model and a 27-inch model. And unlike the Mini and MBP, the new iMacs will not be shipping today. In fact, the 21.5-inch model will begin shipping in November and the 27-inch model will not begin shipping until December. The base price for these break down as follows;

  • $1,299 — 21.5-inch iMac with a 2.7GHz Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 1TB of storage
  • $1,799 — 27-inch iMac with a 2.9GHz Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 1TB of storage

Otherwise, both models will include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NVIDIA Kepler graphics. Some of the upgrades include up to 768GB of SSD storage, up to 32GB of RAM and up to 3TB of hard drive based storage. Of course, there is also the expected goodies such as an HD FaceTime camera, headphone jack, speakers, USB and Ethernet.

Finally, touching on the design. These models are said to be 80 percent thinner than the previous generation iMac and sporting edge-to-edge glass that has 75 percent less reflection than the previous models and an anti-reflective coating.
