Apple updates iMac computers with Retina displays

Apple has introduced a major update for its entire iMac computer line that brings the stunning new 4K Retina display to the 21.5-inch iMac for the first time and the Retina 5K display to all 27-inch iMac models. The new iMacs also come with faster processors and graphics cards and offer Thunderbolt 2 technology as well as new storage options to all users out there.

“From the first iMac to today, the spirit of iMac has never wavered – deliver the ultimate desktop experience with the latest technologies, gorgeous displays and cutting-edge designs,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “These are the most stunning iMacs we’ve ever made. With our gorgeous new Retina displays, more powerful processors and graphics and all-new Magic accessories, the new iMac continues to redefine the ultimate desktop experience.”

The visual quality in both models has been immensely improved with the introduction of the new displays. The 21.5-inch iMac now features a 4K display that works at 4096 x 2304 pixel resolution, bringing 9.4 million pixels to the table. The 27-inch iMacs now come with Retina 5K displays, which Apple claims is the world’s highest resolution. The new 5K displays come with 14.7 million pixels, which happens to be 7 times the pixels seen in an HD display. They also bring a wider color gamut for more brilliant and true-to-life colors on the desktop.

Apple has touched the insides of the iMac line too – the new computers now come with better processors and faster graphics cards. The 27-inch iMacs with 5K displays come with 6th generation Intel Core Skylake processors and the latest AMD high-performance graphics cards that deliver up to 3.7 TFLOPS of computing power. The new 21.5-inch iMac with 4K Retina display features an Intel 5th generation Broadwell processor inside with Iris Pro graphics.

Along with these improvements Apple has also introduced all-new Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad peripheral devices. They are now more comfortable to use, capable and environmentally friendly. The devices have built-in rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and solid chassis and come with various improvements. The new Magic Keyboard features a full-size keyboard in a sleek new design that takes up 13 percent less space on your desktop. The new Magic Mouse 2 is lighter, sturdier and features an optimized foot design for a smoother glide. The new Magic Trackpad 2 features a 29 percent larger surface and brings Force Touch to the desktop for the first time.

The new 27-inch iMac with 5K Retina display is available now. Depending on the model the 27-inch 5K iMac sells for USD 1799, USD 1999 and USD 2299. The 21.5-inch iMac is also available now and sells for USD 1099, USD 1299 and USD 1499, depending on the model you choose. All new Apple computers run Mac OS X El Capitan out of the box.
