New 17-inch iMac is not that new …

And the rumor released this weekend by an Italian website has just been brought down by the “new” 17-inch iMac that appeared on Apple's education website, in fact, the old white polycarbonate model.

Interestingly, both he and the white MacBook are still being marketed by Ma. In the case of the iMac, even more understandable: the screenshot above was registered on an Apple Store Online page restricted to schools / universities, that is, it kept a machine that it costs little to produce, enabling its sale for the announced $ 900.

The newsletter quoted on Saturday remains on the air, but it has already been updated and the word “new” is no longer there, avoiding confusion. In case you're curious, the machine in question includes a 1.83GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 24x Combo Drive and Intel GMA 950 graphics. That is, unlike the white MacBook, the iMac didn't even have some of its internal components updated since it left the market, still in 2007.
