Apple preps Core i7-based iMacs for shipment

updated 02:50 pm EST, Tue November 10, 2009

Follows after Core i5 models

Apple has begun prepping for shipment the more powerful Core i7 version of the 27-inch iMac, according to shipping notices. A variant of the already high-end Core i5 model, which began shipping yesterday, the i7 boosts core speeds from 2.66 to 2.8GHz, and also enables performance-enhancing technologies such as hyperthreading. Features are otherwise identical to the i5, including options for up to 16GB of RAM and 2TB of hard drive storage. A Magic Mouse is included by default.

No delivery dates have been confirmed, but the computers are only now being prepared for shipment in China. Likewise, i5 systems have yet to cross the Pacific to reach North American buyers. Products should appear on doorsteps within seven to 10 days.
