WWDC 2017: Apple announces all-new iMac all-in-one desktop range

The new iMac Pro with a gorgeous 5k display, considered to be not only the most handsome iMac version to be made by Apple, but rather also the most powerful Mac ever to be made.

Apple has acknowledged that it needs to do better and it addressed some of these concerns by unveiling a new iMac Pro with super-fast Intel Xeon chips, AMD's Radeon Vega graphics processor, and up to 128 GB of pre-installed RAM. The 27-inch Retina 5K display that supports one billion colours makes the device gorgeous as ever. Then new MacBook Pro comes with 2.8GHz or 2.9GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, and supports Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz. This 21.5-inch iMac also has the option of Radeon Pro 555 with 2GB of video RAM for graphics or a Radeon Pro 560 with 4GB of video RAM. This will be our most powerful and fastest Mac ever, which carries workstation-class computing to iMac for the first time.

The 21.5-inch iMac will start at $1,100 and the 4K 21.5-inch model will be available at $1,300. Moreover, it also comes with a new display that is 43 percent brighter.

The updated iMac (mid-2017 models) are available to order now on apple.com and will be in Apple Stores starting on Wednesday, June 7, 2017.

The iMac Pro features four microphones, stereo speakers, and a 1080p FaceTime HD camera. When it comes to price, the iMac Pro is said to cost about $5,000, as a starting price. More details can be found at apple.com/imac-pro.
