“Though the new 27-inch iMac with Retina display has the same overall design as Apple’s previous all-in-ones, it ushers in a 14.7-million-pixel 5K display with screen resolution of 5,120 x 2,880. That’s seven times as many pixels as 1080p, and 67 percent more than you’ll find even on a 4K panel,” Dana Wollman writes for Engadget. “I’m not exaggerating when I say there’s nothing like it. As it is, you’d be hard-pressed to find a 4K all-in-one, and meanwhile, here’s this machine from Apple, with enough pixels to view a 4K video at full resolution, and still have room left onscreen for other stuff, like the Final Cut Pro dashboard. Needless to say, it’s in a league — and price class — of its own. ”
“The Retina display iMac is the best all-in-one desktop you can buy right now, and yes, the $2,499 seems fair, considering the amazing display,” Wollman writes. “For people who are serious about their photos, and serious about their videos, this new model is in a class of its own. There’s simply nothing else like it — no other 5K all-in-one, not even a 4K machine that would come sort of close.”
