Apple’s online store is back up following some downtime this morning and just as we all expected, it now features a nice new family of iMacs.

These new all-in-ones boast Intel’s next-generation quad-core i5 and i7 processors, the company’s high-speed Thunderbolt technology, 3x faster graphics, and a FaceTime HD camera.

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:

21.5-inch 2.5GHz Quad-Core i5 processor, AMD Radeon HD 6750M 512MB GPU, 500GB HDD – $1,199
21.5-inch 2.7GHz Quad-Core i5 processor, AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512MB GPU, 1TB HDD – $1,499

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.
