Following the debut of the 27” iMac with Retina Display last fall, Apple has now brought the higher-resolution screen to its smaller sibling, introducing the 21.5‑inch iMac with Retina 4K display ($1,499). Pushing the display up to a 4096 x 2304 resolution, with 9.4 million pixels, the new model also sports a 3.1GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor and 1TB hard drive with Intel Iris Pro Graphics, two Thunderbolt 2 ports, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi with support for wireless speeds of up to 1.3Gbps.

Users can also choose to upgrade the base configuration with a 3.3Ghz Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB RAM and/or Flash Drives or Fusion Drives in various capacities. The new iMac also comes with Apple’s latest Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2 as standard options, bringing the Force Touch feature first debuted on the new MacBook to the desktop iMac experience.
