It’s the return of the … iMac? Get it? Like the Mark Morrison song? Whatever, Apple made a new iMac and you can get it now.
Specifically, Apple issued an almost entirely internal update to the 27-inch iMac. The company’s signature desktop computer now comes with a Retina 5K display, 1080p webcam, and faster 10th-generation Intel processor across all three new configurations. It starts at US$1,799 and goes up to US$2,299 if you want the beefiest specs.
You also get an SSD no matter which variant you buy, with the option of getting a whopping 8TB SSD. By default, you get a 256GB SSD in the US$1,799 model and a 512GB one in the US$1,999 and US$2,299 models. Apps will load so fast.
The processor, memory, and display upgrades come with the aforementioned 1080p webcam and “studio-quality” microphones for all that teleconferencing you may be doing right now.
Unfortunately, anyone who was hoping for a total revamp of the iMac will have to wait longer. Apple didn’t change the physical build of the computer at all, instead opting for more of an incremental upgrade.
These new specs will surely make the upgraded iMacs adept at running macOS Big Sur when it launches later this year. Apple’s website shows expected shipping dates for the end of this week if you order now. Plenty of time to listen to “Return of the Mack” on repeat.Apple, iMac
