Faster and thinner are (yet again) the keywords here: the new iMac would appear to be a powerful music production machine that also looks nice in your living room.
The volume of the new model is said to be 40 percent less than its predecessor, and the edge of the screen is a mere 5mm. Apple claims that you get less reflection from the display, too.
Inside, you’re looking at a third generation 2.7 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 for the 21.5-inch base model - you can also go for a 27-inch iMac. If you can afford the extra £400/$500 it’ll cost you to have it, the extra screen real estate will come in handy when you’re managing multiple DAW windows and plug-ins.
Storage is handled by the Fusion Drive, which combines flash memory and a hard drive and promises to ‘intelligently’ manages files and applications to give you the best performance.
