A surprisingly quiet release by Apple Inc.
Just recently, the super tech giant, Apple Inc. has quietly launched a new low-end version of the iMac. This keeps educational institutions to save over $200 from the regular model.
Apple Inc. seems to release the newer version to avoid all fanfare of its low-end iMac. The company clarified though that this new gadget is only for educational institutions. It costs at $1,099, saving up to $200 from the price of the regular version of iMac.
It is still not confirmed though when Apple has launched the new low-end iMac for educational institution consumers. However, according to MacRumors, the company seems to have released the product just recently. The new version has replaced the $999 iMac. This iMac for educational institutions was released last year.
This new product features a 21.5-inch screen. Its hardware has a 3.3 GHz Core i3 processor, 4GB or memory, and 500GB of storage. The user can do upgrades for $270 each — one is for custom configuration RAM and the other is storage upgrades.
This new iMac for educational instiutions can only be ordered and purchased directly by the institution itself on the Apple store. Furthermore, no students or teachers can buy this product for personal use.
Everybody is anxious waiting for the highly projected Motorola Droid Bionic to arrive at Verizon. The Droid Bionic will be the first dual-core LTE gadget of Verizon. It is projected to come at stores on September 8, the InfoManager system of Verizon said, even though Verizon has so far to confirm any date. The newest sign of a close release date came from the Droid Bionic showing up in Verizon’s TestMan site, which will often happen when a gadget is near release. The cost is unluckily too expensive for the ordinary man at $99,999.99 since this is not an actual product page and just a placeholder. The actual anticipated cost is supposed to be $299.99 after a discount.
If you are unfamiliar with the Droid Bionic, it spots a 1GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3” qHD display, Android 2.3, an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 1GB of RAM, and a 16GB microSDHC memory card pre-installed. The LG Enlighten was also spotted on the TestMan site. It is a mid-ranged device with a touch screen and a full sliding QWERTY keyboard. It features a 3.2″ HVGA display, a 800MHz processor, and a 3.2MP autofocus camera.
