It’s not just new iPad Air 2 that Apple unveiled today, but also a new 27-inch iMac with Retina Display. Yeah, you hear that right! The new 27-inch oxide TFT display is what Apple’s calling “Retina 5K,” comes with a 5,120 x 2,880 resolution – thats 67% more pixels than 4K. Even with all of that new screen power, the new iMac is said to be 30 percent more energy efficient. The outer edge is also 5mm thick, keeping the trim frame all the way around.
Now you’re probably wondering about the new iMac’s guts. There’s a quad-core 3.5GHz Intel Core i5 processor that can be upgraded to a 4GHz i7, AMD Radeon R9 M290X graphics by default, 8GB RAM, 1TB Fusion Drive and Thunderbolt 2 ports that offer 20 Gbps transfers.
If you need more power you can equip the new iMac with up to 32GB of RAM, AMD Radeon R9 M295X graphics, a 3TB Fusion Drive and 1TB of PCIe flash storage.
You can pre-order the new Retina Display iMac today and the base model is priced at $2,499.
