New iMac – I Think I Just Wet Myself

New iMac (2007)

Apple has released an update to the iMac! I’m looking forward to seeing one of these up close, but by the description it sounds like a sweet ride. A creative use of aluminum and glass make for a sleeker look and better viewing of multimedia. Steve Jobs claimed that it is more environmentally friendly, which makes sense if people will find a way to recycle. Glass and aluminum are certainly more renewable than the plastics used on previous iMacs or any PC.

Here are the mad specs:
– Intel Core 2 Duo processor, pick your speed: 2GHz, 2.4 GHz, or 2.8 GHz. TRANSLATION: Very fast.
– 2 FireWire ports (one FireWire 400; the other a FireWire 800)
– 3 USB 2.0 ports
– 8X DVD-burning SuperDrive
– Gigabit Ethernet
– built-in Bluetooth 2.0+EDR
– AirPort Extreme wireless networking
– a built-in iSight camera
– brand-spanking-new keyboard design
– remote control for Front Row (app for movies, music, photo slide shows, etc)

Software included:
– Mac OS X v10.4.10 Tiger (includes Spotlight, Dashboard, Mail, iChat AV, Safari, Address Book, iCal, DVD Player, etc.)
– iLife ’08 (includes iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, iWeb, GarageBand)
– Front Row
– Photo Booth
– iWork ’08 (30-day trial)

Let the drooling begin.
