Apple revealed the new Retina iMac at the October 16 event yesterday. The new iMac comes as a follow up to the cheaper version of iMac released on June 18. The new iMac is a 27 inch Retina 5K, a much more impressive version than its predecessors. The new Retina iMac was just one of the new products Apple made public at their official event. The other products include the new iPad Air 2, the iPad Mini 3 and the OS X Yosemite.
Let’s see what’s so special about the new iMac, shall we? First of all, the new Retina iMac looks exactly the same as the previous iMac models, so nothing’s changed so far. It has a 5mm thin design which makes it look sleek and super modern. Apple hasn’t made any changes regarding the Retina iMac’s look but it played a bit with the display. It features the 27 inch Retina display, made from 23 layers and containing 14.7 million pixels. If that’s not impressive, we don’t know what is. And all these in just 1.4 mm of thickness. This adds a super resolution to the overall screen, making the colors look vibrant and alive. The new Retina iMac features very efficient LEDs which makes it use 30% less power, despite the fact that there are so many pixels involved.
All the new Retina iMac computers come with the OSX Yosemite, which is a powerful new version of the previous OS X. The new operating system has been redesigned and refined, which gives the new iMacs a fresh and modern look. The new apps look and work amazing and the latest Continuity features make the new iMac more fluid than it’s ever been. The OS X Yosemite has been designed especially to work perfectly with the Retina 5K display, meaning that the clarity is stunning on all the apps.
The new Retina iMac – price and availability
The new Retina iMac is available to buy from the Apple online store and Apple says it will be shipped in 3-5 days, depending on the number of orders, at the retail price of $2,499.
