PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN LIKE NO OTHER

For the best in performance and sleek design, the all-in-one iMac cannot be beat. The gorgeous Retina 5k display offers 27 inches of spacious widescreen brilliance, vibrant color, and powerful, lightning-fast graphics. This spectacular new machine offers a wider color gamut than ever before, broadcasting breathtaking vibrant colors. Your photos and video will appear so realistic, you will think you’re looking through a window rather than into a computer monitor. 

With its 5mm edge, this iMac is so amazingly thin it's almost invisible from the side! By using a cutting-edge “friction-stir” welding technique, Apple joined the front and back together, resulting in 40% less volume than its predecessor. Not only slender and beautiful, the iMac also gives a cutting-edge, smooth performance.

AMAZING GRAPHICS & FAST PERFORMANCE

This beautiful model has a 5120 x 2880 crystal-clear, stunning resolution that’s 7 times the resolution of standard HDTV and has over 67% more pixels than a 4k display, considerably more spectacular than any previous model. The anti-reflective coating on the expansive IPS panel allows for wider viewing angles, so the entire family can watch a movie or slideshow together without having to squeeze in front of the screen. This 27” iMac with Retina 5K display features 14.7 million pixels, exhibiting your content in breathtaking, vivid composition. The whites are brighter, the blacks are darker, and the colors are more radiant than ever before. The latest AMD high-performance graphics delivers up to 3.7 teraflops of graphics computing power. Perfect for a high-end work machine or a focal point for entertainment, its simple, elegant design complements any room in your home. Delight in the hyper-realistic pictures and video inviting you to jump right into the screen and join the fun. 

But it’s not only gorgeous, it’s also powerful with a quad-core 6th generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor with Turbo Boost 2.0. All this comes with the ability to upgrade to 32GB in the four available SO-DIMM slots for high-end video or photo production (or to dive headlong into that awesome video game). Since it includes an AMD Radeon R9 M290/X graphics card, it’s designed for high-level gaming, and with the 2GB of GDDR5 memory (custom-configurable to 4GB), it is also great for editing video and high-resolution photographs. Revel in those millions of pixels, quickly accessible to display outstanding visual effects. Smooth and responsive, so more lagging. No more ghosts. No more glitches or blur–only vibrant brilliance.

If you thrive on the cutting-edge of technology, consider upgrading to the optional 4GB of GDDR5 memory and the AMD Radeon R9 M295X along with the 4.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor for the ultimate experience. For processor-intensive applications like Logic Pro or Final Cut Pro, Turbo Boost 2.0 ensures this iMac won’t fall behind.

The Thunderbolt 2 ports diversify the types of devices you can connect and enable faster data transfers at twice the bandwidth of its predecessors–up to 20 Gbps.

These innovative Thunderbolt ports also function as mini DisplayPorts for an additional monitor (just in case 27 inches of visual real estate isn’t big enough for you), presenting up to a 3840 x 2160 resolution.

The USB 3.0 also performs fast transfer of large files. Its speed is up to 10x faster than the USB 2.0, and it enables connection to your other iDevices, as well as your digital camera. Don’t worry, these USB 3.0 ports are backward compatible to your USB 2.0 devices and external HDs.

STORAGE & SECURITY

If you’re tired of waiting for your old machine just to boot up, configure this iMac with up to a 3TB Fusion Drive for a faster, smoother experience providing the huge storage capacity of a hard drive coupled with the high speed of a flash drive. This intelligent machine manages your data and sorts it based on frequency of use, storing them on the 128GB flash module, so you can get to your most-used files in a split second. As Apple inches ever more closely to full AI, this incredible iMac learns all this on its own!
