(Topic-based page of Tips, Troubleshooting & How-To Guides for Mac/OS X/iOS Users here.)

New Entry Level iMac (1.4GHz Dual-Core i5) $1,099 (USD)
The Apple store has an updated iMac listing. A new Base 21.5in model is now $1,099 but has a 1.4GHz dual-core i5 CPU, HD5000 graphics, 8GB RAM (no upgrade option), 500GB HDD. The 2.7GHz i5 quad-core was the base model at $1,299. (The $200 delta gets you faster Quad-Core CPU/1TB HD/Iris Pro, option to upgrade RAM.) The iMac specs page has been revised now also. (In a quick scan didn't see any updated GPUs/CPUs or Thunderbolt 2.) No new Mac Mini either.
