Apple Announces The iMac With 5K Retina Display


In addition to showing off updates to the iPad lineup, Apple today announced this year’s new iMac, the first Apple desktop to receive a Retina display. Packaged in a thin body like the last few iMacs, this new all-in-one packs a Retina 5K display with 14.7 million pixels (67% more than even 4K) and will come with Mac OS X Yosemite, the operating system Apple debuted at WWDC back in June.

This new iMac is, by far, the most powerful all-in-one Apple has ever released. They’ll start with a 3.5 GHz Intel Core i5 and AMD’s mobile Radeon 290X graphics chip, both of which you’ll be able to upgrade (to a 4.0 GHz Core i7 and a mobile Radeon 295X GPU, respectively). All of that will start at $2499, putting it in the same ballpark as Apple’s other high-end desktop, the Mac Pro. If you’re willing to drop that kind of cash on a computer, you don’t have to wait long – Apple says that the new iMac will be available to order today.
