Apple has today added a 5K Retina 27-inch iMac to its arsenal of Macs to coincide with the public release of OS X Yosemite.
Unveiled at the latest Apple event, the new iMac offers the world’s highest resolution display. Available for order today for $2499, the 5120 x 2880 display contains a mind-boggling 14.7 million pixels – seven times more than a standard HD screen. We’ve been lucky enough to get to get a sneak peek – and we’re bowled over by the display.
It’s just 5mm thin and uses 30 per cent less energy than previous models. It comes equipped with 3.5GHz quad-core engine, a 1TB Fusion Drive as standard and 8GB of RAM.
Apple also announced was a long-awaited update to the Mac mini. As well as slashing $100 from the base price, the Mac mini now has a fourth-generation Intel Core processor on board. In a real performance upgrade, wireless performance is 30 per cent quicker and with its Intel HD Graphics 5000 card, an impressive 90 per cent faster than the previous generation. There’s also Thunderbolt 2 connectivity and support for HD TVs.
Both Macs are available from today.
