Apple iMac 27" 5K Display Early 2019 Overview

  • 1Description

Apple weds high-res 5K visuals into its sleek 27" iMac with Retina 5K Display (Early 2019). With a 5120 x 2880 screen resolution, this iMac provides one billion colors and 500 nits of brightness. The Retina 5K display also features the wider P3 color gamut, which provides a larger color space that shifts away from standard white LEDs to red-green phosphor LEDs that more equally represent red, green, and blue. And with more available colors, the images will appear more vivid and reveal greater detail, with more balance and precision.

The iMac's processor has been upgraded and now houses a 9th-gen 3.6 GHz Intel Core i9 Eight-Core processor that can be overclocked up to 5.0 GHz, as well as 8GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM in a 2 x 4GB configuration that can be upgraded to 64GB by using a 16GB module in each of the four SO-DIMM slots. Visuals are powered by a dedicated AMD Radeon Pro 580X graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 video memory, and for storage, there is a 512GB PCIe SSD.

Outfitted with Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and backwards compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n for speedy hook-ups to your home network, this iMac is also configured with Bluetooth 4.2, as well as an SDXC card slot, two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports, four 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a Gigabit Ethernet jack, and a FaceTime HD camera. It also has a Kensington lock slot for added security.

Apple's 27" iMac with Retina 5K Display (Early 2019) operates using 100-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz and includes an Apple Magic Keyboard , an Apple Magic Mouse 2, a Lightning to USB Type-A cable, and a power cord. Protection is provided by 90 days of complimentary technical support and a limited 1-year warranty, which can be extended by purchasing AppleCare+ for Mac.

This Mac comes preloaded with macOS. Updates can be downloaded for free via the Mac App Store. Please check Apple's website for upgrade eligibility.

General Features

Retina Display

Bright and Colorful
Available with a 5K resolution of 5120 x 2880, the Retina display shines beautifully on iMac. With one billion colors and 500 nits of brightness, graphics, text, television shows, and movies are sharp and lifelike, while games also display fine details.
True-to-Life Color
The world is full of color, and iMac brings more of them to your screen. The Retina display uses P3 color that shifts away from standard white LEDs to advanced red-green phosphor LEDs. That means all three colors - red, green, and blue - are more equally represented and show off real-world color with more balance and precision, bringing all your photos and content to life more vividly.


This iMac is equipped with a 9th-gen 3.6 GHz Intel Core i9 Eight-Core processor and an AMD Radeon Pro 580X graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 video memory. Storage moves along quickly too, with a 512GB PCIe SSD, so no matter what you're into, you can get it done on your Mac.
Eight Processing Cores
With a powerful eight-core processor, this iMac clocks Turbo Boost speeds up to 5.0 GHz, which means you get more muscle when you're using processor-intensive applications like Logic Pro X or Adobe Photoshop.
This iMac features robust AMD Radeon Pro 580X graphics with 8GB of GDDR5 video memory to deliver visual effects and 3D graphics that exhibit raw power in a polished form.
Storage is about space, but it's also about speed. That's why this iMac has a 512GB PCIe SSD.


iMac + macOS
MacOS is the operating system that powers everything you do on a Mac. It lets you do things you simply can't with other computers. That's because it's designed specifically for the hardware it runs on - and vice versa. macOS has features inspired by its most powerful users but designed for everyone.
iMac + iPhone
Your iMac works seamlessly with your iPhone. So whether you're texting, or snapping a photo, you can move between devices without missing a beat.
iMac + Apps
Powerful creativity and productivity tools live inside every Mac. These apps will help you explore, connect, and work more efficiently. They include Safari, Photos, Mail, Siri, Calendar, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, News, Messages, FaceTime, and Notes.
App Store
Find even more apps in the Mac App Store, including Microsoft Office 365.


Iconic Design & Advanced Engineering
iMac has always stood out in form and function. It is an elegant, quiet, all-in-one computer that puts everything - display, processor, graphics, storage, memory, and more - inside one simple, stylish enclosure. And thanks to its superslim profile, which measures 5mm at its edge, it fits in almost anywhere, yet stands out everywhere.


Packed with Ports and Possibilities
Two Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) ports come standard on the iMac, each delivering data transfer speeds of up to 40 Gb/s for external drives and cameras, as well as ample bandwidth for video and display connectivity. Four 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports give you plenty of options for connecting peripherals, including your printer, iPhone, thumb drive, and more. And with fast three-stream Wi‑Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technology, you're instantly connected to all your favorite content.
Turn Your Workspace into a Showcase
Thunderbolt 3 lets you add one 5K display alongside the one already on your iMac. Or, you can connect two 4K displays and put over 32 million pixels into play.

Keyboard & Mouse
Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Keyboard pair with iMac and come included in the box. If you're looking for extra functionality, Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad and Magic Trackpad 2 are sold separately and offer some additional options.

    Apple iMac 27" 5K Display Early 2019 Reviews

    27" iMac with Retina 5K Display (Early 2019) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Video Editing Beast! Im going from a 4-core i7, 1TB HDD, 16gb ram, and an old Nvidia graphics card to this sexy beast, my first ever apple computer. Having used windows all my life it is taking some adjusting but I cant explain how happy I am to be able to play back 4k footage in Premiere Pro with out having to pre-render the clip. Not to mention the learning curve from windows to apple is not nearly as tough as I expected. Ive had it for less than 24 hours and already feel pretty good navigating the system and finding things. This machine operates smoothly and the display is beautiful. Its also lightening fast. I was able to transfer over a file that used to take 18 minutes to write in roughly 3 minutes. Before I even turned it on for the first time I added the extra 32gb of ram from Crucial. That was plug and play and when I finished setting up the iMac for the first time it immediately knew that it had now 40gb of ram, didnt have to do anything for it to recognize the upgrade.  The speakers on this thing are incredible, much louder than I expected and crisp sound. The mouse takes some getting used to but I actually like the swipe features. Keyboard feels small but Im used to having a number pad which is likely why this feels small.  Theres a reason Apple is consistently on everyones list for video editing machines and now Im glad I get to experience it for myself.
