Apple’s $1,099 education-only iMac is cheaper, but…

With little fanfare, Apple rolled out this week a new low-price version of its 21.5-inch IMAC especially aimed for a special market: educational institutions.

The company is taking advantage of a cheaper dual-core Intel Core i3 processor and integrated graphics to offer pricing of $1099, $200 cheaper than the entry-level model available to the general public. But at this price, you will have to give up quite a bit of hardware!

The education-only iMac will features

  • new education imaca dual-core 3.3GHz Core i3 CPU, instead of a quad-core 2.5GHz Core i5 CPU,
  • 4GB of RAM spread across two 2GB sticks, instead of 8GB of RAM in two 4GB sticks,
  • an integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics processor, instead of the dedicated Nvidia GeForce 640M
  • 500GB 5400RPM hard drive, instead of a 1TB 5400RPM hard drive.

Many of these components can be -of course – upgraded at purchase, including the RAM and the hard drive but you will have to pay.

Like its predecessor, the new machine can only be purchased by learning institutions, and is not available to individuals through Apple’s educational discount program. As of now, the new educational iMac is listed with an estimated ship date of five to seven business days.
