Apple has updated its iMac with Retina 5K Display ($1,999 – $2,299) which first debuted last fall, dropping the price of the original model, introducing a second more affordable option, and emphasizing the higher resolution display by adding “5K” to the product’s name. Sporting the same 27” 5120 x 2880 display, the $1,999 model features a 3.3 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 CPU and AMD Radeon R9 M290 graphics, 8GB of memory and 1TB of storage alongside four USB 3.0 ports and two Thunderbolt 2 ports.
The top-end model now starts at $2,299 and sports a 3.5 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, AMD Radeon R9 M290X graphics and a 1TB Fusion Drive. Configure-to-order options on the higher-end model allow users to upgrade to a 4.0Ghz quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, up to 32GB of RAM, AMD Radeon R9 M295X graphics, and a variety of Fusion and SSD drive options. Both models are available starting today through the Apple Online Store, Apple retail stores, and Apple Authorized Resellers.
