Retina iMac hands-on: Tim Cook explains the “Wow!”

Retina iMac hands-on: Tim Cook explains the “Wow!”

The iMac has always had a certain wow-factor, particularly in its most recent design iteration with its 5mm-thick body, but pair that with the new Retina 5K Display and you have an even more eye-catching machine. Announced at Apple's event this morning, the iMac has a whopping 5120 x 2880 display for a huge 14.7m pixels, and while that means you can't see them individually, check out after the cut for the sum impact... with a surprise interruption from Apple CEO Tim Cook to tell me about the new all-in-one's "wow" factor.

Here’s how much Apple’s Retina 5K iMac will cost you

Here’s how much Apple’s Retina 5K iMac will cost you

Apple's new iMac with Retina 5K Display may have a huge number of pixels, but surprisingly the new desktop doesn't have a crazy sticker price. Slotting in at the top end of the iMac range, the 27-inch iMac will start at $2,499. That gets you a number of specifications as standard that, on the regular-display iMac, would cost a premium during the upgrade stage of ordering.

Retina 5K iMac display has insane pixel count

If you were thinking the iMac display was lacking, you might not be alone. Apple has taken the next step forward with their desktop machine, bringing in the “world’s highest resolution display”. Not only Retina, the new iMac is going to be Retina 5K. What does that mean, exactly? It’s got seven times more pixels than your awesome HD TV. It’s also only 5mm thin at the edge, and uses a lot less energy than the existing iMac. Less power and more pixels? Yes, please.

iPad Event to be “live” with Apple

iPad Event to be “live” with Apple

On the 16th of October, 2014, Apple will hold a special event for the reveal of their next hardware release. That’ll almost certainly be the next iPad or iPads as well as a new desktop system of some sort. That could mean a new MacBook Pro, a new Mac desktop, or any number of other systems that are set to showcase the newest version of OS X - Yosemite. The question remains though - will the event have a livestream video, or will they opt just for a live feed of images and text?

Apple iPad/iMac event may happen October 16

Apple iPad/iMac event may happen October 16

Apple’s iPhone 6 and Apple Watch event was chock full of good stuff, but gave up nothing more than a few phones and a wearable. Adding more would have extended the conference beyond our level of comfort, so Apple decided to host a second event later on. Originally believed to be toward the end of this month, it seems the iPad event we’ve been anticipated has been bumped up.

5K iMac tipped to launch with OS X Yosemite

That’s one whopper of a display panel there, folks, but it’s certainly a possibility in rumors that’ve appeared pre-launch for OS X Yosemite. The OS X Yosemite Beta builds released to testers thus far include references to 4096 × 2304, 5760 × 3240, and 6400 x 3600 pixel displays, and we have heard that Apple could be releasing far more densely-packed desktop machines in the near future.

Mac sales and the PC decline

Mac sales and the PC decline

PC sales have been on a steady decline, and the reasons for which have largely been attributed to increased adoption of tablets and ever-larger smartphones. Both IDC and Gartner have shown largely similar numbers in terms of PC sales, and Gartner has recently shown a blip of health in PC growth, but Asymco's Horace Dediu has pointed out that uncoupling Mac shipments from non-Mac PC shipments hints at a bigger story.

4K iMac or Thunderbolt Display tipped for Yosemite debut

Apple's desktop Mac line may finally be getting the Retina update OS X users have been hoping for, with chatter of a 4K model headed to stores around October. Although Retina display technology is already offered on the MacBook Pro and across Apple's iPhone and iPad line, so far the Mac Pro and iMac have stuck with their lower pixel-density panels, despite both computers being easily capable of driving significantly higher resolutions.

Apple’s entry-level iMac has an upgrade problem

Apple’s entry-level iMac has an upgrade problem

Apple may have lowered the entry point to picking up an iMac, with its new more affordable model announced yesterday, but a teardown of the new all-in-one shows it comes with an sting in its upgrade tail. The $1,099 21.5-inch iMac - which some had expected to be announced at WWDC 2014 earlier this month - became the most affordable version in Apple's range, but there's a catch.

New 21.5-inch iMac targets entry-level

A new entry-level iMac pushes the slimline all-in-one to its lowest price so far, with Apple's new 21.5-inch model cutting the cost of desktop OS X ahead of Yosemite's release later in the year. Priced from $1,099, the starter iMac gets a 1.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor and Intel HD 5000 graphics, though Apple's Fusion Drive storage isn't included as standard.

New iMac listing spotted in OS X beta

A refresh for the iMac lineup is expected soon, and could be announced as soon as Apple’s WWDC next week. The company may have tipped their hat a touch early, though, as three new iMacs were spotted in an OS X Mavericks beta version.
