Apple just announced the iMac with Retina Display, a newer and more expensive version of its desktop computer. It has an insanely sharp 27-inch display with a 5210 x 2880-pixel resolution – which adds up to 14.7 million pixels.
“You’ve never seen the level of detail that you’ll see with this display on the new iMac,” Apple said, noting that the screen is officially called the “Retina 5K display.” There are 7x more pixels on the Retina iMac display than on a 1920 x 1080-pixel display, Apple said, noting that the screen also uses less energy.
Under the hood you’ll find a 3.5GHz Intel i5 processor on the entry-level model, but you can add up to a 4GHz Intel Core i7, the fastest processor Apple has ever offered in an iMac computer. Other features include Thunderbolt 2 with 20 Mbps bandwidth per port, AMD Radeon R9 graphics and a 1TB Fusion Drive.
Apple will sell the new iMac with Retina display will start at $2,499. That price includes 8GB of memory and 1TB drive, and pre-orders start today.
