Apple Updates Mac Mini, iMac, Time Capsule, Airport, MacPro


Apple has updated the iMac, Mac Pro, Mac Mini, Time Capsule, and Airport today.


The iMac has been updated with the following:
Prices start at $1,199 for the 20-inch and $1,499 for the 24-inch. At the base level Apple offers a 20-incher with 2.66Ghz Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM, a 320GB HDD and GeForce 9400M graphics, the rest of the iMacs are 24-inch numbers with 4GB of RAM standard. In the high end Apple has 2.93GHz and 3.06GHz processor for $1,799 and $2,199, respectively, with GeForce GT 120 256MB and GeForce GT 130 512MB graphics. In between there’s a 24-incher for $1,199 with 9400M graphics, a 2.66GHz processor and a 640GB HDD. On the outside it’s that same iMac candy shell you know and love, though Apple has oddly replaced the standard wired keyboard with a new numeric keypad-free model — those pesky numbers are available as an option.

The Mac Mini has been updated with the following:

  • 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
  • 1GB memory
  • 120GB hard drive
  • 8x double-layer SuperDrive
  • NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics

Mac mini, $799:

  • 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
  • 2GB memory
  • 320GB hard drive
  • 8x double-layer SuperDrive
  • NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics
Time Capsule and Airport have been updated with the following:
“Apple’s new Airport Extreme actually brings some fun stuff to the staid wireless router market, while a similarly refreshed Time Capsule does the same for NAS land. The power comes from its new dual-band WiFi radios, allowing them to work in 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands simultaneously, support up to 50 users simultaneously and even set up separate limited-access networks for guests. That $179 pricetag on the Airport Extreme doesn’t get any easier to swallow, and neither do the $299 or $499 tags on the Time Capsule (500GB or 1TB, respectively).
