Apple weds stunning 5K graphic visuals into their sleek 5mm thin design aesthetic with their 27" iMac with Retina 5K Display released in late 2014. With a 5120 x 2880 native resolution, the graphics on this iMac are clearer and more eye-catching than on any other previous model.
Apple also features a quad-core 4th-gen Haswell 4.0 GHz Intel Core i7 processor into the mix, along with 8GB of 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM. The four SO-DIMM slots are user accessible, so you have the option to upgrade the RAM up to 32GB for higher-end video or photo production needs.
To help with the enhanced display, this iMac also includes an AMD Radeon R9 M290X graphics card with 2GB of GDDR5 memory. This powerful GPU was designed for high-level gaming, but will do double duty when editing videos or large resolution photos.
Other amenities include an integrated FaceTime HD camera, dual microphones, stereo speakers, a full-size keyboard with 78 keys, including 12 function keys and 4 arrow keys (inverted "T" arrangement), and a Magic Mouse.
Outfitted with 802.11ac Wi-Fi (backwards compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n) for the speediest hook-ups to your home network, this iMac is also configured with Bluetooth 4.0, as well as an SDXC card slot for extra storage, four USB 3.0 ports, two Thunderbolt 2 ports, and a Gigabit Ethernet (RJ-45) jack. It also has a Kensington lock slot for added security.
The 27" iMac with Retina 5K Display runs on the Mac OS X Yosemite operating system. Yosemite has been designed to take advantage of high-end displays, and to integrate iOS devices and your desktop Macs with ease. It also improves almost every area of the Mac OS X, including but not limited to, Safari, Finder, AirDrop and FaceTime, to name a few.
For ports, the iMac has dual Thunderbolt 2 ports (which also double as Mini DisplayPorts) and four USB 3.0 ports. You'll be able to connect with various compatible components. If you would rather go wireless with your peripherals, you can use Bluetooth 4.0 technology where compatible.
