Apple New iMac 2011: Updated Bootcamp 3.2 & Additional Info

To the joy of many today, the new Apple iMac 2011 was announced, and although the models resemble their predecessors, there have been changes and for the better. The two main features to speak of are the inclusion of Thunderbolt I/O and Sandy Bridge CPU’s. Along with this, new specs include FaceTime HD standard in place of the iMac iSight cameras and refreshed range of AMD Radeon HD graphics. Here at OSM we have spoken about what features you can expect to get for your hard earned pennies, pricing and your thoughts, a comparison between the 2010 and 2011 models and so on.

Following on from Apple’s news, AppleInsider were keen to share additional information with avid fans of the iMac device. Firstly the issue with Boot Camp which is a new software update set up to fall in line with the new refreshed models. Support and the free download as Softpedia reported, can be found over at Apple.com. The new update 3.2 as its known deals with the issues surrounding Japanese and Korean keyboards on some of the earlier iMac models. In basic terms, the new Boot Camp 3.2 will allow you to run Windows 7 on Intel based Mac computers and as stated, the 638KB update is only accessible for early 2011 model iMacs.

Other information to take note of, is that on ordering the new iMac, something as Debbie here at OSM reported, they are actually available to purchase now with a shipping turn-around time of 24 hours. On choosing your iMac, you will also be given the option of choosing between the Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad at no additional cost. If you decide to purchase both items, then they can be bought together for a price of $69 with AppleInsider reporting that the Apple mouse is an optional item at no additional cost.

Lastly onto the subject of Thunderbolt and its inclusion. It was highlighted that the new 27-inch iMac model will support three displays and that this higher ended model will include two Thunderbolt ports for speedier in and output plus MiniDisplayPort for additional monitors. To find out more on this head on over to AppleInsider or check out Engadget where the team actually tested this out using two 30-inch Dell devices linked up to the 27-inch iMac via the two Thunderbolt ports.

What are your thoughts on the refreshed iMac 2011 models? Are you impressed or slightly disappointed? Have you already ordered or thinking of getting yours now?

    ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!
    they can hear and see what your visually thinking
    this is the complete total truth

    the reason alot of asians have completely expressionless faces, only associate with asians and dont associate with non asians very much is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read read minds, if all over a billion asians were to show facial expressions all the time just as much as non asians, associate with non asians much more, and be much more friendly and talkative, then alot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they dont like or find astonishing or funny, and if they were all to associate with non asians alot more there would be alot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those other people think things they dont like, so they only associate with asians so there wont be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place

    think about it, its not normal how alot of them act, and the entire way they act is all to hide their mind reading abilities, it makes perfect sense to do all of that to hide that they can read minds, because all of that is the perfect way to do it!
    every single asian on the planet is hiding their mind reading abilities, they will lie about having mind reading abilities forever!
    because they value hiding their mind reading abilities more then their own lives!
    thats why nobody knows about it!

    try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something something absolutely crazy as you possibly can when you are around asians, and try looking for asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, that is them giving people looks when they hear and visually see someone thinking something they dont like, find funny or astonishing
    it still happens despite a large number of them having completely expressionless faces all the time, it would just happen alot more if none of them had completely expressionless faces all the time, its not uncommon!

    i know this sounds crazy, impossible, and completely unbelievable, BUT IT ISNT CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE

    the reason you think this truly is crazy, impossible and unbelieveable is because our society has propagandized people into believing that nothing extra ordinary is real and that is really is impossible, and that its crazy to think that its true that people can read minds, all just to cover up that asians can read minds! who says that cant exist? the people who have mind reading abilities who are trying to cover it up!

    you have to spread the message!!!!
    the world has to know about this!!!!
