WWDC 2017: Apple announces new iMac range

The iMac line is will lead off with the 21.5-inch at $1,099, the Retina 4K 21.5-inch at $1,299, and the Retina 5K 27-inch for $1,799.

Want some more unbelievable specs? iMac Pro also supports up to 4TB of SSD and up to 128GB of ECC memory, and with four Thunderbolt 3 ports can connect to up to two high-performance RAID arrays and two 5K displays at the same time.

Apple® today updated its iMac® line with up to three times more powerful graphics, faster processors, Thunderbolt 3, faster storage options and brighter Retina® displays, and added a Retina 4K display and discrete graphics to the $1,299 (US) 21.5-inch iMac. 'Radeon Pro 500 Series graphics are enabling new generations of makers with compute-accelerated creative tools and new APIs, bringing their imaginations to life in ways like never before. Perhaps most notably, however, the company teased the iMac Pro: an ultra-powerful model coming later this year. Together, these deliver up to 11 Teraflops of single-precision graphics computation (22 Teraflops at "half precision"), and the most advanced graphics ever put inside a Mac. Quite an impressive difference.

Who needs a Mac Pro when an iMac offers better performance and an awesome screen?

No matter; for this particular iMac, the magic is in just what Apple's engineers have managed to squeeze in.

The new beefed-up iMac is meant to address the concerns of professional creatives, who until now have been limited to either the consumer 27in 5K iMac or the older Mac Pro, which hasn't been updated since 2013. The good news, then, is that the standard iMac has been given a welcome update. In other words, while the size and resolution of the screen hasn't changed compared with the current iMac, the Pro offers outstanding visuals boasting true realism.

The other notable change for the MacBook Pro 2017 has to do with the solid-state drive boost, now 50-percent faster compared to the previous models. The 12-inch variant is priced at US$1,299 (AU$1,736) though folks may be well off going for the 13-inch model (with function keys) offered at the same price.

The updated iMac with Retina 5K display features more powerful graphics, faster processors, Thunderbolt 3 and a brighter display. Oh, and theres a 1080p FaceTime camera and a UHS-II port.

Due on sale this December, the iMac Pro has the same exterior design as the standard 27-inch Mac but with an alluring Space Grey finish plus matching keyboard and mouse. That of course is a big jump in price over the existing 27-inch iMac, so you better get saving now for that leap in performance.
