Last month Apple said it would start selling new, ultra-thin iMacs in November, and on the very last day of this month, the Cupertino, Calif., company will follow through on that promise.

Apple Tuesday announced that the smaller version of its revamped iMac computers, the 21.5-inch model, will be available for purchase at stores and online on Friday, Nov. 30.

The new 21.5-inch iMac has a $1,299 base price, features a 1,920 by 1,080 pixel resolution display, and at its edges, the computer is just 0.2 inches thick. The base model runs on a 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor and has 8 GB of RAM.

Additionally, the new iMacs feature the new Apple Fusion Drive 1 TB hard drive. Those drives use both a flash drive and a standard hard drive to optimize how files are stored on the machine.

The 21.5-inch model is also available in a more potent $1,499 version.

As for the larger 27-inch versions of the iMac, Apple reiterated that those models will roll out next month. The renovated 27-inch iMac will be available in $1,799 and $1,999 versions.
