    hey guys.

    Im currently running a Quad Core system and looking to upgrade.

    I've recently been looking at getting a PC setup with the i5 2500k Unlocked processor. Are the new Macs shipping with these or the older CPUs? Very confused over here ...

    Depending on model, the new iMacs ship with Core i5-2400S (low-end 21"), i5-2500S (high-end 21" and low-end 27"), i5-2400 (high-end 27") CPU's in their standard configurations. BTO variants are available with Core i7-2600S (high-end 21"), and Core i7-2600 (high-end 27").

    I actually didn't know the iMac used all low-power Sandy Bridge designs ("S") for their CPU's except for the high-end 27" model (both in its BTO variant and not).

    All CPU's here were introduced in early 2011 and I believe at the same date as the 2500K. :)
