Apple Announces the 5K-display iMac and New Mac Minis

imac5k_2up_yosemite_features

If you’re a professional then the biggest announcement for you will be the arrival of the new 27″ iMac with 5K-resolution (5120 x 2880) displays. That makes it the highest-resolution display in the world with a mind-blowing 14.7 million pixels in total and 67% more pixels than 4K displays. Yet, they use 30% less power than before and maintain the 5mm thin waistline.

With new iMac there’s also a chip to control the display called the “Timing controller”, as well as Oxide TF, organic passivation and a new low-power backlight. The better resolution also means that you can have more room to fit in all your video controls.

Underneath the mesmerizing display sits a 3.5Ghz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, AMD Radeon R9 M290X graphics, 8 GB RAM and 1 TB Fusion drive, in the base model. (Even more) Power users can have a 4 Ghz Core i7 model with 32 GB RAM and 3 TB Fusion Drive/1 TB SSD.

For all this power, 5K panel and the Apple logo, the new 27″ iMac with 5K-resolution costs $2499. That’s superb value for money, no matter how you put it. Meanwhile, the old 21.5″ model now costs $1099 while the 27″ one now costs $1799.

Mac Mini

The new Mac mini marks the first time that Apple has remarkably updated its “BYOKDM” system in quite a while. There’s not much to say really apart from internals because those are really about it.

You get three power-configurations in the Mac mini. The base model has a 1.4Ghz dual-core Intel Core i5 CPU, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB hard drive and Intel HD 5000 Graphics. Next version gets a 2.6Ghz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, Intel Iris Graphics and 1 TB hard drive.

The top-end version gets 2.8Ghz dual-core Core i5 processor, 8 GB worth RAM, 1 TB Fusion Drive and Intel Iris Graphics. The three versions cost $499, $699 and $999 respectively, though, power users can get a 3Ghz dual-core Core i7 processor with 16 GB RAM and 1 TB worth flash storage.

Other than that, users will also get 2 Thunderbolt 2 ports and Wi-Fi 802.11AC with MIMO.

Both the products, i.e. the new iMac with 5K Display and the Mac mini will start shipping from today.

            Yar msla ye hai k jab tk tumhain isky architecture ka hi nahi pta main tumse kya behas karoun tum 30000 wala hi chlao tb tk aur us pe inky differences ko smjho.

            • Muhammad Abrar Ali

              get an architecture and then ask. i am talking about the quality not architecture. Samsung, Sony, HTC are fool. They are producing and selling the best things in the world and for your kind information you are apple freak. nothing else

        There’s a huge difference between building and designing. Apple designs while Samsung, among dozen other companies, manufactures (and gets paid for it). See the point?
