Apple has updated and released its new iMac: Retina 4K display to the 21.5-inch iMac for the first time and the Retina 5K display to every 27-inch iMac.The latest iMac, with its impossibly thin enclosure and brilliant display, which together create the most immersive desktop experience there is. So, this time, is there any new features of the updated iMac family? Here, I have collected some new features and the price information of the new iMac.
New features of iMac
—Compared with previous iMac, the new iMac has 14 million more pixels, 62,000 times faster graphics, 366 times more processing power, 1,000 times more RAM and 750 times more storage.
5,400 RPM 1TB Hard Drive on 4K iMac
— The new 21.5-inch 4K iMac's standard configuration for $1,499 includes a 5,400 RPM 1TB Serial ATA hard drive, which is considered long obsolete for a 2015 desktop computer. Upgrades to a 1TB or 2TB Fusion Drive are available for $100 and $300 respectively.
Fusion Drive Changes
— To allow for lower prices, Apple's 1TB Fusion Drive is now a 1TB hard drive paired with a 24GB SSD. Previously, a 1TB Fusion Drive was a 1TB hard drive with a 128GB SSD. Mac users looking for 128GB of flash storage will need to upgrade to a 2TB or larger Fusion Drive. 256GB and 512GB all-flash storage options can also be ordered.
