Apple wants to be ready for the back-to-school and holiday spending spree and in preparation has unveiled a new, thinner iMac line.

I'll have more specifics later, but what I do know is that the new iMacs will have a thinner aluminum casing and sport 20 to 24 inch displays (the 17 inch line has been discontinued).  Prices of the new systems will be between $1,199 and $1,799 depending on configuration.

If you're in the market for the 24-inch iMac then I have some good news for you - the price has dropped by a cool $200.

Other things we know [UPDATED]:

  • Up to 2.8GHz dual-core processor
  • ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT in the 20 inch model, ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO in the 24 inch model 
  • Up to 1TB of storage
  • Up to 1GB of RAM
  • Built-in WiFi and Bluetooth
  • New aluminum wireless keyboard 
  • Firewire 400 and 800 support
  • No HDMI
  • iMovie '08 will support AVCHD and offer one-click YouTube integration
