Apple Updates iMacs with New Processors and Graphics

In addition to the new processors and graphics card, the new iMacs have been updated to support a 802.11ac base station which will give wireless performance that is three times faster than the previous generation of desktop computers. Also standard with the latest iMacs is 8GB of ram, expandable to 32GB, and a 1TB hard drive, expandable to 3GB. All-Flash storage options are available in configurations of up to 1TB.
