Apple launches new iMac range; Retina 5K Display now standard on all 27in models

After unveiling its latest iPhones and overhauled Apple TV box last month, Apple has today announced its new iMac family - and the company is focusing on high-resolution displays in a big way with its latest releases.

For the first time, the 21.5-inch iMac gets an optional Retina 4K Display with 4096x2304px resolution. And in another first, all 27-inch models will now include Retina 5K Display as standard - the company says that this panel is "the world's highest-resolution all-in-one display with a stunning 14.7 million pixels."

As you'd expect, Apple has upgraded other key specs of its latest desktop too. The 27-inch iMac gets the latest sixth-generation 'Skylake' Intel Core processors, along with AMD graphics. However, the 21.5-inch models are available only with an older fifth-gen processor and Intel Iris Pro Graphics.

All iMacs now get two Thunderbolt 2 ports, along with three-stream 802.11ac Wi-Fi, while expanded Fusion Drive options are now available at a lower price, in a new 1TB hard drive + 24GB 'fast flash' configuration.

The new iMacs are available today - the 27-inch models start at $1799, while the 21.5-inch models are priced from $1099, or $1499 with a Retina 4K Display.
