Apple’s New iMac

27-inch iMac with 5K Retina Display

The iMac remains our favorite all-in-one desktop, and returns this year with great graphics, faster WiFi and brisker disk speeds. There are a lot of options to consider, so let’s take a look at what Apple is offering. Whats next?

We live in a high-resolution world—our phones have been shooting HD video for years, and 4K-capable cameras are finally within reach of regular consumers. And now Apple’s new iMac with Retina 5K display will let you push those pixels with maximum efficiency. With a native resolution of 5120×2880 pixels, this iMac shows a ridiculous amount of detail in everything you look at.

In the hands-on area at Apple HQ, I saw the new 27-inch iMac editing 4K video in pixel-for-pixel resolution, with enough room left on the screen for all of Final Cut Pro’s toolbars and controls. Final Cut Pro wasn’t even running full screen—in the photo below, notice the Dock still hogging some space along the bottom. Not bad.

I also saw some 4K photos displayed at full-resolution in iPhoto. You can see individual strands of fur on close-up puppy portraits, and the hair-thin barbs on the feathers of an owl. If you take detailed photos of cities, beaches, and crowds, you’ll appreciate being able to fit so much on the screen at per-pixel accuracy.

Zooming in and out was quick and smooth thanks to the base model’s 3.5GHz quad-core i5 processor. I only got to play with iPhoto and Final Cut briefly, but in that time—and while watching an Apple rep whip through her demos—the dreaded rainbow beach ball was nowhere to be seen.
