Apple’s all-in-one iMac is one of its most popular computers, but, like most Apple products, it's a bit pricey. Now, Apple has released a "budget" version.
The new iMac cuts $200 off of the iMac's typical starting price of $1,299. Of course, to do it Apple made some cuts to the $1,099 model.
The cheaper iMac has 500 gigabytes of storage, half of the previous generation’s terabyte hard drive. It also features a slower 1.4 GHz dual core processor, and a weaker on-board graphics card.
Fortunately, when it comes to everyday computing, powerful hardware doesn't mean much. Web browsing doesn’t need a giant graphics card, and streaming media doesn’t take up all that much space on your hard drive.
If you love Apple’s design but hate their prohibitive pricing, then the new iMac could end up being your next desktop PC.
