Apple has been busy updating its iMac range and boosting the storage found in its iPod digital music players.

The iMac has gained faster G4 processors running at up to 1.25GHz with 333MHz DDR RAM, improved nVidia graphics and USB 2.0.

The 15in iMac sports a 1GHz G4 processor, 256MB of 333MHz DDR RAM, 32MB GeForce MX graphics card, two FireWire and three USB 2.0 ports, plus an 80GB hard drive. It retails for £999.

The 17in model uses the new 1.25GHz G4 processor and adds a DVD writer and a 64MB nVidia GeForce FX 5200 Ultra graphics card to the basic spec for £1,449.

The iPod family also has a new member with a 40GB capacity model being introduced at £399. This top-of-the-range player can hold up to 10,000 songs, so it should be sufficient for even the most prolific audiophile. The entire iPod range can connect via FireWire or USB 2.0.
