It’s go hard or go home when it comes to Apple’s flagship iMac range of computers. These all-in-one computers have for a long time been the leader in design, and for their sheer simplicity of setup are a growing favourite for many. Sales of Mac’s went up 18% last year, there’s little doubt the iMac plays a big role in that. Today in Cupertino Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed a stunning new display for the 27 inch iMac.
Apple calls it “Retina 5K” and as the name suggests, it has a higher resolution than even the newest and latest “4K” screens.
At 5120×2880 there’s 14.7million pixels on the screen. Throw in Intel Core i5 or i7 power and an AMD Radeon graphics card and you’ve got some pretty decent performance on-screen.
Aimed at professional photo and video users the iMac with Retina 5K will start at $2,999 in Australia.
For that money you’ll get:
- 3.5GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz
- 8GB (two 4GB) memory
- 1TB Fusion Drive1
- AMD Radeon R9 M290X with 2GB video memory
If you’re in the “go hard or go home” category, then perhaps you’ll add more power and space:
- 4.0GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 4.4GHz
- 32GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM – 4x8GB
- 3TB Fusion Drive
- AMD Radeon R9 M295X 4GB GDDR5
Those specifications take the total price to $4,509.
The iMac with Retina 5K is available now.
