Apple Releases New Upgraded iMac

The iMac has been kitted out with new Intel quad-core processors as well as faster flash storage. It also boasts fourth generation wifi – three times quicker than the previous generation according to Apple, which describes the iMac as "the world's leading all-in-one desktop".
Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said: "iMac continues to be the example that proves how beautiful, fast and fun a desktop computer can be."
Apple's iMac launched last November and was seen as a radical departure of past versions by some reviewers who praised the flat screen which is as thin as 5mm in places.
“There were gasps in the auditorium when people saw how thin the new iMac is. “It's astonishingly thin at the edges – 5mm, though it does bulge a little at the back.”
The desktop will still has 8GB of memory and a 1TB hard drive. The updated 21.5-inch iMac is retailing at £1,149 inc VAT, rising to £1,749 for larger models.
The updated iMac's release today comes on the back of a busy week for Apple innovation. Last Wednesday the company's new operating system, iOS 7, went live and soon drew complaints from users struggling to download the software.
Some people complained of waits of more than 24 hours, while analysis from one company suggested one in three tweets about the launch mentioned download problems.
Last Friday Apple's newest smartphones – the iPhone 5s, which comes with fingerprint technology, and the iPhone 5c, which comes in a range of colours – went on sale. More than nine million were sold over the weekend, a record for the company.
