Apple has begun shipping the 27-inch iMacs with Intel’s Core i7 processor, according a Cult of Mac reader. The i7 is Intel’s beefier update to its Core 2 Duo, running 2.66 – 2.8 GHz.

The i7 27-inch iMac shipped today and is expected to arrive in the U.S. by Nov. 17, according to the email. The unit had been ordered nearly one month ago on Oct. 23.

Earlier this week, word leaked out that Apple had begun shipping orders for the 27-inch iMacs with Intel’s 2.66 GHz i5 processors.

The i7-based 27-inch iMacs retail for around $2100.
