Apple cuts processor speed in half, drops two cores, and cuts the price by $200
It has been
rumored for the past few weeks
that Apple would launch lower cost iMacs to make its desktop range more appealing to customers. Early reports pegged the launch for
, but that obviously didn’t happen. However, Apple today made its move, announcing a new budget-minded 21.5” iMac with a 1080p display.
Given its bottom-rung placement in the iMac family, this machine is in no way a speed demon. In fact, it comes with a lowly dual-core Intel Core i5 processor running at a mere 1.4GHz (Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz) and an Intel HD Graphics 5000 integrated GPU. For comparison, the previous entry-level iMac comes with a 2.7GHz Intel Core i5 processor (Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz) and Intel Iris Pro Graphics.
Other features include 8GB of RAM, a 500GB HDD (5400 RPM), 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0.
The new entry-level iMac starts at $1,099, which represents a $200 reduction compared to the previous entry-level model.

Most of our marketing department is on 27" iMacs, but I also think that's because people still think that Adobe runs like crap on Windows, which hasn't been the case in over 20 years.

It isn't just for creatives. About everyone I know in Silicon Valley develops in OS X. Google, Facebook, my good friends at Artillery, all use OS X. If you're developing for non-MS platforms then it makes sense given that most IDEs outside of .NET are a pain in Windows.
OS X clearly has lots of users in the creative fields. I work in the film industry and Macs are used
That said, programming for open platforms such as the web is mostly done in OS X or some other *NIX variant. Its weird seeing how much Mac hate there is around here (almost all from Android fanatics, no less) given that Google supports about 50k OS X machines.

"I work in the film industry and Macs are used everywhere."
It all makes sense now. The complex rationalizing, the feeling superior but being treated inferior complex that you seem to go through about your Apple products. The inability to grasp why other people see things differently than your myopic view of the tech industry.
It's OK, TYP, they do work well. Just use them an enjoy them and don't worry that other people don't like them or care.
