The second model includes a dual-core i5 processor 2.6GHz, with 8GB of RAM, Intel Iris Graphics, and 1TB of hard drive storage for $699. The most expensive $999 model is equipped with a 2.8GHz dual-core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, Intel Iris Graphics, and a 1GB Fusion Drive.
All models are also configurable to get an upgrade to a 3.0GHz dual-core i7 processor, up to 16GB of memory, and 1TB of flash storage.
