Screen Grab: Apple Launches New iMacs, Remote

Apple_remoteOf course. Of course! A month after I bought an iMac, Apple (s AAPL) goes and refreshes the line. Normally we wouldn’t cover a product line update like this, but as our sister publication, TheAppleBlog, points out, the new, bigger, LED-lit iMacs will undoubtedly be a must-have for NewTeeVee watchers:

The new displays feature 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution for the 21.5-inch, and 2560 x 1440 for the 27-inch, which mathematically inclined readers will note makes the aspect ratio for the screens 16:9. That’s good news for HD movie and TV show watchers, but the changed ratio might not excite web and print professionals quite as much.

Apple also unveiled a new remote control today, replacing the iconic (and easily lost) white-on-white control with a sleek aluminum one with black buttons. Again, from TheAppleBlog: “Is it worth an additional $19 now? Not sure, but at least it matches the machine it works with.”
