Apple has confirmed that its brand new iMac desktop devices will be available from Friday, 30 November, with the cheapest 21.5in model starting from £1,099.

The 21.5in model will be available to buy online and in Apple's own stores and via its resellers, while the 27in model will be available for order online but not in store as yet.

Apple also merely stated that orders for the 27in version "will begin shipping in December", but no specific release dates were announced.

The 21.5in iMac is available with a 2.7 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor for £1,099. A second version, with a slightly faster 2.9GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, will be offered from a starting price of £1,249.

Meanwhile, the 27in iMac is available in two standard offerings. The first sees it kitted out with a 2.9GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor for a suggested retail price of £1,499.

The second model is equipped with a 3.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor and will be offered for a suggested retail price of £1,699.

Apple showed off the devices when it unveiled the iPad Mini device in October, touting their ultra-thin build at just 5mm on the edge and with an improved display that reduces reflection by 75 percent.

The new iMacs also include 8GB of 1600MHz memory, a 1TB hard drive and the latest Nvidia GeForce graphics processors that deliver up to 60 percent faster performance, according to Apple.
