Apple has just unveiled its new range of iMac all-in-one desktop computers. These were one of the highlights of the company's ‘Spring Loaded' virtual event, which also saw the launch of AirTags, Purple iPhone 12, new and iPad Pro tablets. While a lot was said about the new range of computers, we have consolidated the most useful information here about the iMacs. These include the prices, availability details, specs, features and more.

New iMac price and availability

The new range of iMac computers starts at 1,19,900 and is also available at 1,39,900 and 1,59,900 based on different GPU and storage options. You cannot buy it right now in India as these will be made available in the second half of May. It is, however, possible to pre-order it starting April 30, as mentioned on the company's India online store.

New colours for new iMacs

Since years we saw Apple launching its iMac desktops in just Silver colour and minor design changes. However, this time Apple has added a whole lot of colours into the mix and has gone back to the rainbow colour like it was for G3 Macs years ago. The new ones come in Blue, Green, Pink, Yellow, Orange, Purple and Silver. These have a two-tone look as the back side has a deeper saturated look while the front chin and the sides are of lighter shade.

M1 based iMacs for the first time

On the inside, the key feature of the new iMacs is that they now run on Apple's own M1 Silicon. This was introduced by the firm last year and debuted in MacBook Air, MacBook pro and Mac Mini. You can get these in 8-core CPU + 7-core GPU and 8-core CPU with 8-core GPU.

Difference in three variants

The base model comes with a Magic Keyboard and has 8-core CPU and 7-core GPU, 256GB storage, 8GB RAM, 24-inch 4.5K Retina screen, Two Thunderbolt + USB 4 ports. It comes in Blue, Green, Pink and Silver only. The second variant has 8-core CPU with 8-core GPU, same RAM, storage and display. However, it additionally supports two USB 3 ports, Gigabit Ethernet and Magic Keyboard with Touch ID. The most powerful variant has 512GB storage, same CPU and GPU, same RAM, storage, display, ports and colours.

M1 iMacs get a new power brick

What's different about the new power brick is that the adapter has an inbuilt port for Ethernet. It makes sense considering that none of the new iMacs have an Ethernet port on them and it will also help in clearing the clutter at the back of the table.
