Apple Rolls Out Sub-$900 iMac For Education

The 17-inch iMac is built with a 1.83GHz Core Duo processor from Intel, with a series of multimedia functions. The systems are also integrated with Apple's AirPort Extreme Wi-Fi connectivity.

Apple said the new iMacs would replace the CRT-based eMac.

The lower-priced iMac comes to market in the middle of a growing price war among PC makers Dell, Hewlett-Packard and Lenovo, and ahead of the back-to-school selling season that traditionally targets the education and higher-education spaces.

Apple said the new iMacs would be bundled with its iLife '06 suite, which includes iPhoto, iMovie and iWeb software, and will run with OS X version 10.4.6.
