Apple announces the much rumoured 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display, starting at $2499

Apple has finally introduced its much-awaited new 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K Display at its October 16th event.

According to Apple, it is spreading the Retina display technology across all of its devices and the iMac was next in line. The new iMac features what Apple is calling the world’s highest resolution display with 14.7 million pixels. The iMac features a 5K display with more than seven times the number of pixels in a HDTV. Despite the massive increase in the number of pixels, Apple has kept the iMac just 5mm thin, just like the previous generation.
