Apple gets nostalgic and brings back colorful options to the iMac
Remember those classic iMacs with bulbous, colorful backs? Well, Apple just announced what amounts to the 2021 version of those classics.
The new, super thin desktop will be available in seven colors: green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, blue, and silver.
The tech giant dropped the news during Tuesday’s Apple event, the first of 2021.
The new iMacs reminded lots of folks of those old iMacs that donned middle-school computer labs all over the country (if you were lucky).
If customers want to get colorful with their new computer, they can also color-match one of three Magic Keyboard models to pair with the iMac, along with a color-matched mouse.
Here is a closer look at the images of the new, colorful iMacs and accessories.
The new iMac will be the first to feature Apple’s M1 chip, which is made in-house.
“M1 is a gigantic leap forward for the Mac, and today we’re excited to introduce the all-new iMac, the first Mac designed around the breakthrough M1 chip,” Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing said in a statement. “With its striking design in seven stunning colors, its immersive 4.5K Retina display, the best camera, mics, and speakers ever in a Mac, and Touch ID, combined with the amazing performance of M1 and the power of macOS Big Sur, the new iMac takes everything people love about iMac to an entirely new level.”
As Joswiak noted, along with the new colors, the new iMac has an improved webcam, speaker system, and display, among other features.
Pricing starts at $1,299 and they’ll go on sale April 30.
