Apple has released the latest updates to the iMac and Mac mini product lines.

The iMac product line now ranges from a 1.83Ghz 17″ Core 2 Duo model for $999 to a 2.33Ghz 24″ Core 2 Duo model starting at $1999.

The new base 17″ iMac model has integrated Intel GMA950 graphics, a 24x Combo drive, and lacks the Apple Remote (this system was previously sold as an Education-only configuration). The 20″ model has been upgraded to 2.16Ghz Core 2 Duo CPUs, 4M shared L2 cache (versus 2M in the previous Core Duo model), and 1G of RAM as standard. The new 24″ model features a 2.16 or 2.33Ghz Core 2 Duo processor, 4M shared L2 cache, a 250G SATA hard drive, NVIDIA GeForce 7300GT graphics (native display of 1920×1200), built-in Bluetooth and AirPort Extreme, and an Apple Remote. All Core 2 Duo-based systems are now 64-bit.

The Mac mini product line has been upgraded to Core Duo processors across the board (the Core Solo option was discontinued).

The base mini Core Duo system at 1.66Ghz and a Combo drive is available for $599, with the high-end model at 1.83Ghz and a SuperDrive is $799. Both systems still ship with 512M of memory as standard.
