Review: Apple iMac with 5K Retina display

12/09, 6:42am

The Apple iMac with 5K Retina display delivers a stunning

The Apple iMac with Retina 5K display is the first Apple desktop computer to sport one of Apple's vaunted Retina displays.

While introducing a Retina display on the iMac may not be the biggest surprise, Apple certainly raised some eyebrows when it revealed the price. In delivering its latest high-performance all-in-one computer with state-of-the-art display for $2499, it has also managed to redefine the value equation in the segment. Read on in our full review of the iMac with 5K Retina display To see why we consider its asking price to be one of the best computing deals on the market.

First Look: Apple iMac with 5K Retina Display

11/14, 11:10pm

Apple sells 5K Retina Display, includes powerful iMac computer for free

Apple has been adding Retina displays to its mobile product range over the past few years, but desktop users have missed out -- until now. Apple's new iMac with Retina 5K display has landed, with four times the pixel density of previous models - taking its total pixel count to an incredible 14.7 million pixels. But it is much more than just a pretty face: behind the stunning new Retina display, it packs a one-two punch of up to a 4.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 display and AMD Radeon R9 M295X with 4GB of DDR5 VRAM. We've been using it for the past week, and have some first impressions ahead of our full review.

Early benchmarks show Retina iMac processor's power against Mac Pros

10/21, 9:10pm

Retina iMacs beat Mac Pros in single core tests, but lags in multi-core

Early benchmarks of the new iMacs show the Retina 5K iMac as having high enough performance to beat the 2013 Mac Pro in some tasks, suggesting that in some cases it may be better to buy the new high-end iMac than a base-level Mac Pro. Results for the range, appearing on the 64-bit Geekbench 3 benchmark, has the high-resolution 5K iMac's 4.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor option dominating the board for single and multi-core performance when compared to previous iMacs, and it manages to also put up a good fight when compared to configurations of last year's Mac Pro.

Chatter between the staff of MacNN and Electronista is always occurring behind the scenes, but it ramps up when special events or live reveals happen in the tech world.

Four times more pixels than previous model, all-new display technology

At its iPad event, Apple also unveiled a new 27-inch Retina 5K iMac, featuring an all-new display that offers 5K (5120x2880) resolution, 67 percent more pixels than found in a new 4K HDTV.

Analyst claims delays will limit second-gen iPad Air numbers

10/15, 10:51am

Calls for 27-inch Retina iMac, modest Mini update at press event

Apple will announce a second-generation iPad Air at tomorrow's press event, but 2014 shipments of the tablet will be hampered by production delays, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. "Of the new products, we think the market will be more interested in iPad Air 2. However, as the poor yield rate of anti-reflective coating cover lens has delayed mass production, we estimate 2014 shipments of iPad Air 2 to 7M to 9M units, lower than the 12M units of the then-new iPad Air shipments in 2013," he writes. "We thus expect iPad Air 2 to contribute less to the supply chain than iPad Air did last year. We also don't expect the event to boost supply chain shares much."

Yosemite, new iMacs also anticipated

Apple may be planning to hold its expected iPad event on Thursday, October 16, sources indicate. The emphasis will reportedly be on a second-generation iPad Air and a third-generation iPad mini. The sources add, however, that the event could also feature refreshed, possibly Retina-equipped iMacs, as well as OS X Yosemite. Apple has yet to confirm a release date for Yosemite, and the event could give the company an excuse to demonstrate previously-unseen (or little-seen) features. New iMacs would presumably ship with the OS pre-installed.

Rumor has 27-inch Retina iMac announcement in October

09/29, 12:00pm

May make switch to AMD graphics cards

Apple is planning to unveil a 27-inch iMac with a 5120x2880 Retina display at its October press event, a new report claims -- citing an anonymous source. The computer will allegedly make a switch from Nvidia video cards to AMD, and offer a 4GHz Intel i7-4790K Haswell CPU as one configuration option. The 21.5-inch iMac isn't expected to make the jump to Retina graphics, at least not until Intel Broadwell processors launch -- which is most likely in early 2015.

But is not the type of dual-core processor that you might expect; it is in fact the same low voltage dual-core Intel Core i5 processor found in Apple's current MacBook Air range. In the MacBook Air the Intel chip delivers solid performance in its class; but how does it perform in an iMac?
