Apple has been at the forefront of devices with high-resolution displays over the past few years, with its Retina displays for iPhones, iPads, and Macbooks.
Now the company is bringing a high-res screen to the iMac family of all-in-one desktops.
With a 5,120 x 2,880 pixel display, Apple says the new iMac offers 7 times more pixels than you’d get in a 1080p television, and 67 percent more pixels than you’d see on a 4K ultra HD display.
An entry-level model features a 3.5 GHz Intel Core i5 quad-core processor and AMD Radeon R9 M290X graphics. Apple says it offers 45 percent faster performance than earlier generation iMac computers and also has faster i/o thanks to Thunderbolt 2.
You can also upgrade the iMac with Retina with a 4 GHz Intel Core i7 processor and AMD Radeon R9 M290X processor.
While $2499 is a lot of money to spend on a desktop computer, Apple points out that 4K displays often sell for more money than that. The new iMac has a higher-than-4K display and also features the most powerful PC components the company has ever packed into an iMac.
