The new Apple iMac with 4K Retina display (2015)

Last year, the 21.5-inch Apple iMac line announced a huge surprise for its customers, reducing the price to 1,099 dollars. Well, the new version aims higher. Apple has updated its flagship device, the 2015 iMac, with interesting configuration and stepped up to an incredible 21.5-inch 4K resolution display.

Of course, this new device is a little bit expensive, coming at the starting price of 1,499 dollars. However, there are two other base models, at the price of 1,099 dollars and 1,299 dollars, but they come with 1,920x1,080 displays.

Well, customers who already have the last year's iMac are probably not going to upgrade their device, unless they want the new implementation of 4K. The display resolution is 4,096 pixels wide, meaning that this new device is targeting professional video and photo users, who may shot at 4K resolution.

However, there are many other changes besides the enhanced resolution, including the new Retina display that comes with the wider P3 color gamut, meaning that the display can show more of the red and green color options.

Furthermore, the model jumps from Intel’s fourth-generation Core i-series processors to the latest fifth-generation chips. That is an important change because iMacs were two generations of CPU behind.

To be added that the new 21.5-inch iMac comes with Thunderbolt 2 ports for quicker data transfer and new hybrid hard drive features, called Fusion drives. Probably, the most obvious changes, besides the new CPUs and the higher screen resolution, are the collection of accessories.

These include the Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad and the Apple wireless Keyboard. These 3 accessories has received an update after years of waiting. All three accessories have lost their reliance on disposable batteries and moved to internal rechargeable lithium-ion batteries.

With this new update, the trackpad and keyboard become slimmer and lose the bulbous battery compartments. Now, the new Magic Keyboard is both flatter and smaller and features slightly larger key face, while the Magic Trackpad has a larger surface area.

To be added that the new Magic Trackpad 2 supports Force Touch, a new feature that can also be found on MacBook Pro laptops.
