There are four new iMacs to choose from starting at $1,199 – two 21.5-inch models and two 27-inch models – all four come with 4GB of RAM and a FaceTime HD camera capable of shooting video in 720p.

Here are your options:

Intel’s Core i7 processor is available in the high-end 21.5-inch iMac if you choose to configure your own build.

The 21.5-inch iMacs each feature a single Thunderbolt port, while the 27-inch options each boast two Thunderbolt ports.

The new family of iMacs are available to order immediately with shipping currently within 24-hours.
