Budget iMac for students to be revealed next week?

Share

imac-2011.jpgiMacs, Apple’s lustworthy all-in-one computers, are a bit out of reach of the majority of penny-watching students. That may change next week however, as rumour has it that the Cupertino kings are preparing to launch a budget-friendly version of the machines, aimed at volume buyers and college-goers.

Considerably lower spec’ed than the current standard iMac line-up, the budget version is rumoured to featre a 3.1GHz dual-core processor and AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics card, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 250GB hard drive. If rumours prove true, it’s expected to cost less than $1,000 (£610).

Compare this to the standard entry-level iMac 21.5 inch iMac model with 2.5 GHz quad-core processor, 4 GB of RAM, 500 GB hard drive, and identical AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics processor with dedicated memory doubled to 512 MB. That sets you back $1,199 (£730) stateside.

So, is 200 bucks worth a considerable downgrade in specs? Or is a month or two of avoiding the booze in order to bag the standard issue iMac a better bet? With the budget iMac expected to be revealed next Tuesday (August 16th) you may have to make that decision sooner than you’d think.
