New iMac, MacBook and Mac Mini

Apple has just released the revised iMac series of computer. Available in 2 sizes - 21.5" and 27", these are very cool computers.

If you are looking to get started with a Mac, the 27" 3.06GHz version (Core 2 Duo) is a worthy buy at S$2,588 (S$2388 for educational price).

I am a huge proponent of large screens, since that makes you really productive, especially if you are using Xcode and Interface Builder. The 27" iMac also allows you to use it as an external monitor - connect your MacBook/MacBook Pro to it and it doubles up as a 27" monitor. Hence, I think the 27" model is really worth the money.

Of course, if you live in the Windows world as well, this is the perfect machine to dual boot into Windows 7 using Bootcamp.

Besides the iMac, Apple also revised MacBook and Mac Mini. If you are a little budget constraint, these should serve as a quick stepping stone to the Mac world.
