Apple announces New 27″ iMac with Retina 5K display

Apple just announced its highly anticipated 27″ iMac with Retina Display. The display, which comes ing at 5120×2880 pixels, features a stunning 14.7 Million pixels. Apple states that it’s the world’s highest resolution.

To put these numbers in perspective, the display has 7 times more pixels than standard 1080p Full HD. It allows for full 4K video editing with room to spare.

With such a high resolution, you’d like the power usage would be driven up to be significantly higher than the previous 27″ iMac. Not so, Apple has made it so that the display is actually 30% more power efficient than before.

Of course, the iMac is more than a display. It features the following standard hardware:
  • 3.5GHz Intel i5 (upgradable up to 4GHz i7)
  • Radeon R9 graphics
  • Thunderbolt 2
  • 1TB fusion drive
  • 8GB RAM
All of this costs $2499 at the low end of the spectrum. Build to order options will, of course, can raise the price substantially.
