Apple announces 21.5-inch iMac with 4K display and other ‘Magic’ accessories


Apple is giving its 21.5-inch iMac a good boost of 4K resolution (4096 x 2304) on the new HiDPI Retina display which is a big leap from the 1080 resolution display. That means a sharper and vivid display which will make it even more desirable. Along with that Apple is giving it a boost with faster processor, RAM and graphics improvement. The 27-inch 5K model (5,120 x 2,880 resolution) also comes with the wider color gamut boost for reproducing colors on the screen.

While the inside hardware has been beefed-up for both the models, on the outside the things haven’t changed much. Display panel looks almost the same with a broad bezel area. But no one’s complaining much about that as the 4K option of 21.5-inch display overshadows everything else. The new 4K model for 21.5-inch iMac is going to cost $1,499 while you can still buy the older 1080p model for $1,099.
