Apple has revealed that its new iMacs will go on sale on Friday, November 30.
Unveiled last month, the new iMacs features what apple calls a “stunning design” and a new manufacturing process called “friction stir” welding which allowed the company to make their new computers thinner than the previous generation.
However, that same production method was rumored in the past to cause delays in mass production of the new iMacs. These rumored delays was earlier reported to cause the new iMac computers to be delayed until next year.
The new iMacs include both the 21.5-inch model and the 27-inch model.
However, the 21.5-inch model will be the first to be released this Friday. Apple says it will be available on November 30 through its online store and through authorized resellers.
The 27-inch new iMac will be available in December but Apple did not give any specific dates.
