Apple reduces prices of old iMacs
Apple Computers seems to be working on phasing out more models of their older generation Macintosh computers as the company is now working on a transition to Intel based products. They have already launched their new range of Intel powered iMac and MacBook Pro and are scheduled to launch more in the coming months.
The company has just announced that they are reducing the price of once the top of the line iMac by around USD 200. This means that the 20-inch iMac G5 is now priced at a yummy $1,499. It also puts this Mac dangerously close to the price of the 17-inch PowerPC model.
Apple has plans to continue supplying the older generation products until the supply lasts. As a result, the prospective buyers might get a generous discount on these deals as the company moves towards their new generation Macintosh products in the coming times.
The company usually keeps 4-5 weeks’ worth of systems in stock though they have not revealed any further plans to cut prices of other products in their range. The 20-inch iMac G5 comes powered by a 2.1GHz PowerPC G5 processor, 512MB of memory, a 250GB hard drive, an optical drive, and integrated wireless and Bluetooth.
They have not yet reduced the price of the 17-inch iMac G5 which costs the same as the new generation Intel iMac at USD 1299.
