Barely making it under the promised November deadline, Apple has started shipping the slim new iMacs first shown off at last month's iPad mini event -- but the 27-inch model may not arrive until Santa Claus does.
Apple is now selling its new 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs, which start at $1299 for the base 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 model. The 21.5-inch models are available to ship in one to three business days at this writing, but big-screen iMac fans won't be receiving theirs for two to three weeks.
All of the new iMacs come with a number of build-to-order options as well, with the base models capable of doubling RAM from 8GB to 16GB (or a Fusion Drive on the 27-inch model), while the faster, more expensive models of each can choose faster processors or Fusion Drive options.
Since the new iMac went on sale almost a full day ago in other parts of the world, MacRumors has posted the first known unboxing video as well as initial teardown photos from Japanese website Kodawarisan. We'd imagine the gang over at iFixit will be ripping one of the 21.5-inch models fairly soon, so stay tuned for that as well…
