Apple announced a new iMac with a 27-inch high-resolution “retina” display on Thursday at its event in Cupertino. The new iMac will cost $2,499 and starts shipping today.
Apple said the new “retina” 5K Display features the world’s highest resolution display, and has 14.7 million pixels on one screen.
Phil Schiller, Apple’s SVP of marketing, announced the new iMac, and said the desktop computer with a 5210 x 2880 pixel display has seven times more pixels than an HD television. The iMac will also use 30% less energy than its predecessor.
The new iMac comes with a 3.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, an AMD Radeon R9 M290X for improved graphics, better storage with a 1TB Fusion Drive, and 8GB memory.
