Apple Releases Faster, Brighter iMac (mid-2017)

The new iMac features more powerful graphics, faster processors, Thunderbolt 3 and brighter displays

Apple just updated its iMac line for 2017, while the look and design remains unchanged. The internal changes provide up to three times more powerful graphics, faster processors, Thunderbolt 3, faster storage options and brighter Retina displays. Pricing starts at $1,100 for the 21.5-inch model and $1,800 for the 27-inch 5K iMacs (same as before). But the headline is the 21.5-inch iMac includes a 4K Display for $200 less than the previous generation.

The updated iMac features faster Kaby Lake processors up to 4.2 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 4.5 GHz and supports up to twice the memory as the previous generation. Fusion Drive is now standard on all 27-inch configurations and the top-end 21.5-inch iMac. SSD storage options are now up to 50 percent faster, and iMac comes with Thunderbolt 3, the most powerful and versatile port ever.

Graphics on iMac are more powerful across the line with the new Radeon Pro 500-series graphics with up to 8GB of vRAM. The 21.5-inch 4K models deliver up to three times faster performance and the 27-inch 5K models are up to 50 percent faster.

iMac also comes with the best Mac display ever, now 43 percent brighter at 500 nits and with support for 1 billion colors, delivering an even more vivid and true-to-life viewing experience.

Price and Availability
The updated iMac (mid-2017 models) are available to order now on apple.com and will be in Apple Stores starting on Wednesday, June 7, 2017. Additional technical specifications, configure-to-order options and accessories are available online at apple.com/imac.
