Apple continues to surprise its tech savvy patrons. It has been reported that the new iMac desktop will feature a 21.5 inch screen with 4k Retina display.
Along with the newest OS X El Capitan beta, Tech Crunch reports that the newest Apple desktop will sport a 21.5 inch screen with 4K Retina display (4096 x 2304 resolution). The larger Retina display gives users the opportunity to watch “a 4K video in its native resolution, without having to scale it down.”
In addition, 9 to 5 Mac writes that this could possibly be a “smaller screen upgrade” to the current iMac Desktop 27 inch with 5K Retina Display, which is larger and more costly.
Images regarding the information can also be viewed on the French website Consomac.
The titanic resolution does not only catch the attention of the Apple fans, but video professionals as well.
9 to 5 Mac has additional information about the specs and feature:
“References to four new AMD Radeon R9 processors (M380, M390, M395 and M395X) are also found in the beta, which could indicate additional Mac models or 4K iMac upgrade options.”
Should the news be true, Apple will create a variety of choices between a 15-inch MacBook Pro with a retina display, a 27-inch iMac with a 5K display or the 21.5 inch with 4K Retina display.
Currently, Tech Crunch also has a handful of insight regarding the possible price:
“With prices now starting at $1,999, the 27-inch, 5K iMac is much cheaper than when it first came out. When Apple announced the 5K iMac, it cost $2,499. But even at $1,999, you still have to spend a bit more money to get an SSD or fusion drive. Add another upgrade or two, and you could end up with a powerful yet expensive desktop computer.”
Apple has yet to provide an official announcement regarding this newest development.
