$999 iMac 2011 for Education

New iMac for Education

Apple is always supporting Educations by giving discounts to students and teachers. Today Apple launches the new $999 iMac 2011 for education market. This will be a great asset to school as iMac will be the best computer you can get in school’s Computer Lab.

Below are the stats of the new iMac for Education:

  • 21.5 inch Display
  • 3.1GHz Intel Core i3
  • AMD Radeon HD 6750 GPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 250GB Hard disk
  • Super Drive for Optical
  • Lion OS

It is a pretty neat iMac, having enough horsepower and good amount of screen for work. But I’m pretty surprised why Thunderbolt and just 2GB of RAM. I’m quite sure running virtualization to run Windows should be useful, as some software that school use might still be Windows only.

Nevertheless, hope this Mac will help School purchase more affordable Computers and benefit the students.
