Apple Has Launched The New 5K iMac With Retina Display

Apple has launched their newest iMac, the 5K iMac with Retina display at the October 16 event.

"Precision and innovation have always been a part of the iMac story," says Apple. "Bringing the Retina 5K display to the 27-inch iMac was no different. It meant making incredible leaps in design at every level, from re-engineering the brains of the display to maintaining the 1/100th of a micron tolerances with the display cell."

But this great piece of technology does not come for cheap. With the basic model costing $2,499, the iMac has a pixel count of 5120 x 2880 and a 27-inches display measure that is framed by a 5-mm bezel. It also has premium hardware needed to make every spec of its 14.7 million pixels perform its best. It comes in the options of 3.5 GHz, quad-core Intel i5 processor or with a 4 GHz, quad-core i7 processor.

The iMac is also equipped with a 1-TB Fusion drive that can be changed for a 3 TB one. Users also have the choice to pick a full-fledged 1-TB SSD if they want. It has two Thunderbolt 2 ports with a bandwidth of 20 GB each.

"All the pixels in the world won't do you any good if you can't quickly and efficiently command them into action," says Apple. "That's why the new iMac with Retina 5K display features the latest AMD high-performance graphics -- with up to 3.5 teraflops of graphics compute power. So you experience stunning motion graphics, jaw-dropping visual effects, and 3D graphics so true to life that you'll feel like you're part of the action."

Along with all these great features, the iMac with Retina display also comes with the latest OS X Yosemite installed on it.
