It's all go at Apple: the company has just rolled a stack of new desktops: the Mac Pro, the iMac and the Mac Mini have all been updated.

The Mini's long awaited revamp sees the small machine gain Nvidia's GeForce 9400M integrated graphics as Apple's laptops now possess. As early leaked pics revealed, the new model has five USB ports, a Firewire 800 connector, Mini DVI and Mini DisplayPort.

The Core 2 Duo CPU's set to 2GHz, backed by a choice of 1GB or 2GB of 1066MHz DDR 3 memory with 120GB or 320GB of hard drive space, respectively. Prices are $599/£499 and $799/£649.

The iMac tweak sees the 20in model's price fall to $1199/£949 and gain the 9400M IGP. So does the entry-level 24in iMac, which likewise gains a 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo CPU. It has 4GB of DDR 3 memory to the 20in's 2GB, and a 640GB HDD to the lesser model's 320GB. It's priced at $1499/£1199.

Two more 24in models, priced at $1799/£1499 and $2199/£1799 gain, respectively, 2.93GHz and 3.06GHz CPUs, and GeForce GT 120 and GeForce GT 130 graphics. The slower model has 640GB of hard drive capacity - the top-end unit tops out at 1TB. Both have 4GB of DDR 3.

The two new-spec Mac Pros come with, respectively, one and two 2.66GHz 'Nehalem' Xeon CPUs; 3GB and 6GB of triple-channel 1GHz DDR 3 ECC memory; a base 640GB hard drive; 18x dual-layer multi-format DVD writers and GeForce GT 120 graphics. They're priced at $2499/£1899 and £3299/2499.

The iMacs and Mac Minis are available now, Apple said, while the Pros will ship in a few days' time. ®
