Apple has announced a huge update for its iMac range of computers. As expected, the 21.5-inch model has received an optional 4K display, whereas all the variants from the 27-inch range have been granted 5K monitors. Besides, more powerful processors and graphics as well as enhanced storage options have also made their way into them.
The new Retina 4K display on the 21.5-inch iMac showcases its visuals in the stunning 4096 x 2304 pixel resolution, resulting in 4.5 times more pixels than the standard 21.5-inch iMac monitor bearing a 1080p display. This is topped by the 27-inch iMac with its Retina 5K monitor featuring 7 times more pixels than an HD display.
These Apple all-in-ones can now be grabbed with sixth-generation Intel Core processors and the latest AMD high-performance graphics. They feature not one but two Thunderbolt 2 ports for offering transfer speeds of up to 20Gbps. Moreover, built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi ensures fast wireless connectivity as well.
The smart Fusion Drive combinations have been updated as well, whereas all-new wireless accessories including the fresh Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2 have been unveiled. There’s no need to mention that OS X El Capitan comes pre-installed on all these iMacs.
Apple has already made the 21.5-inch iMac available in the US via the company’s official website and its retailer stores. It can be purchased in the form of three models, with the two base variants going for $1099 and $1299 and the Retina 4K display-equipped edition available at $1499.
The 27-inch Apple iMac with Retina 5K display too is available now. It can be grabbed at $1799, $1999 or $2299, depending on the configuration you wish to opt for.
