24-inch iMac upgraded at last

The 24-inch iMac two years ago came as a pleasant surprise with not only the then-new M1 chipset, but also a fun, colourful design. It replaced the 21- and 27-inch iMacs. But last year’s launch of the M2 chipset was unfortunately not followed by any iMacs using it. That’s about to change!

Now we finally get a new model of the colourful all-in-one computer for consumer use. Thanks to its use of the new M3 processor, performance has almost doubled, according to Apple. If you still have an old Intel model, now might be the moment to upgrade. Apple says it’s 2.5x faster than the 27-inch model and 4x faster than the old 21.5-inch model.

“We’re excited to give iMac a big boost in performance with the M3 chip. Millions of users absolutely love iMac for its stunning design and expansive 24-inch, 4.5K Retina display that’s the perfect size to spread out with all their favorite apps and get things done, said John Ternus, Apple’s senior vice president of Hardware Engineering
