Apple Inc. (AAPL) continues to launch out new products. Just last week, the tech giant released its two new phones: the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c. This time, Apple has updated its series of iMac desktops. The new iMacs are faster and more efficient thanks to Intel's latest Haswell processors.
Another important improvement is a new set of flash memory storage. As mentioned, the latest iMacs pack on Intel's fourth generatuion, quad-core processors. This features faster and better graphics.
