Apple introduced a 5K Retina iMac today.
iMac has always been about having a huge, immersive place to see and create amazing things. So making the best possible iMac meant making the best possible display. The new 27â€‘inch iMac with Retina 5K display has four times as many pixels as the standard 27â€‘inch iMac display. So you experience unbelievable detail. On an unbelievable scale.
At a relatively mere $2500 (a dell 5K display will set you back just as much, and that’s just a display), this is an amazing machine. It’s not useful for me (certainly not at that price point), but professionals are going to eat this thing up.
Finally. And thank you, Apple, for kicking off the desktop resolution race. I think 5K will be just about enough at 27″.
