Apple reveals Aussie pricing for new Macs

Australian pricing for the iMacs starts at $1,599 for the 3.06GHz Intel Core i3 model

Apple this morning released Australian pricing on its refreshed iMac and Mac Pro lines, as well as a new multi-touch trackpad peripheral.

The new iMac family -- shipping now in Australia -- now includes options for Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 CPUs, as well as more discrete graphics card options based on ATI's Radeon family and various other additions.

Australian pricing for the iMacs starts at $1,599 for the 3.06GHz Intel Core i3 with a 21.5 inch screen, 4GB of RAM and a ATI Radeon HD 4670 graphics card. The model with the 3.2GHz Intel Core i3 and a 21" display is at a recommended retail price of $1,999, while the price goes up to $2,199 for a 27" iMac with a 3.2GHz Core i3 CPU.

The 27" 2.8GHz quad-core Core i5 iMac models start at a recommended price of $2599.

"Configure-to-order options" are available for the 3.6GHz Core i5 and 2.93GHz and Quad-Core Intel Core i7 iMac models -- these can include up to 16 GB of RAM, a 2TB hard drive and a 256GB sold state drive. All models on the new iMac line feature ATI Radeon graphic cards and 1333 MHz memory. The option to purchase a 256GB solid state drive as a primary or secondary drive is available for consumers who purchase an iMac with a 27 inch screen.

The new multi-touch Magic Trackpad announced today -- which is similar to trackpads found in Apple's MacBook Pro line, but larger -- is available for an extra cost for $99 and is available now in Australia.

Apple also upgraded its Mac Pro high-end professional desktop overnight, featuring new quad-core and 6-core Intel Xeon processors, new graphics cards and the option for up to four 512GB SSD drives to be included. The new models will be available in August.

The basic Mac Pro goes for $3499, and includes one 2.8GHz quad-core Intel Xeon CPU and 3GB of memory with an ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card. But an 8-core model is also available for $4,899 -- shipping with two 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Xeon CPUs and 6GB of memory. The Mac Pro can be extensively configured to users' requirements.

Finally, overnight Apple unveiled a new 27" display with a number of improved features such as the ability to automatically adjust display brightness based on light conditions in the room. "The new LED Cinema Display will be available in September through the Apple Store, Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorised Resellers," said Apple in its statement. "International pricing will be made available at time of launch."

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
