New iMac and 13-inch MacBook Pro with retina display details
Apple has announced several new products, including a new smaller iPad mini and an updated version of the larger iPad, but it also showed off a new iMac and a new version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Read on to find out all the latest info.
What is the new Apple iMac?
The new iMac is Apple’s latest all-in-one computer featuring a new design, improved screen and updated processors. The new iMac is 80% thinner than the previous version at the edge of the screen, measuring just 5mm thick and has 40% less volume than the old iMac.
According to Apple, the new display reduces reflections by 75% thanks to an anti-glare coating, making it easier to read than previous screens. It is available in 21.5-inch versions and a 27-inch model.
As well as updating the design and screen Apple has refreshed the processors making the new iMac faster with third generation quad-core Intel Core i5 processors – with the option to upgrade these to i7. Apple also claims the latest NVIDIA GeForce processors provide 60% faster graphics.
Each iMac now comes with at least 8GB of Ram and a 1TB hard drive, which can be extended to 32GB of Ram and 3TB of storage or 768GB of flash storage for faster access.
When can I buy it?
The new iMac starts at £1,099 for the cheapest 21.5-inch version and £1,449 for the 27-inch model. The smaller version will go on sale in November with the larger arriving in shops in December.
What’s new in the 13-inch MacBook Pro with retina display?
