iMac 2014 Apple Release Date, Cheaper Price, Specs & Retina Display Details
Apple unveiled a new cheaper iMac a few weeks back (June 18th) when the Apple store went offline for 5 hours when the site was back up there was a new iMac available.
The new cheaper iMac is listed at $1,099 which is $200 under the previous low for a 21.5-inch iMac. Like its still-available $1,299 iMac, the new $1,099 iMac (known specifically as model MF883LL/A) uses an Intel "Haswell" (4th-Generation) Core i5 processor, but here it's a dual-core 1.4GHz CPU with Intel HD 5000 integrated graphics, rather than a quad-core 2.7GHz chip with Intel's stepped-up Iris Pro graphics. The allotment of memory is the same (8GB), but the hard drive is cut in half (from 1TB to 500GB, which is still adequate for most users, especially in this age of iCloud).
This also brings speculation of a Retina display to the all-in-one desktop Mac. Here, we bring you the new Retina iMac's release date, features, specs and price, so you'll know the latest iMac news. Read on for all of the new iMac news and future iMac rumours.
Apple is working on a new iMac with a Retina display in the developer preview of OS X Yosemite. MacBidouille reports that the developer preview includes a file that refers to a display scaling resolution option for the iMac. Apparently, the file includes a collection of scaling resolution options for the new iMac. They max out at 6400 x 3600 pixels, or 3200 x 1800, which is a Retina display.
One reason why the new iMac might NOT be Retina display is that as screen sizes get larger, the graphics card requirements also increase. The 27in iMac currently has a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 - the Retina display resolution on that model would need to be 5,120 x 2,880, although it has been suggested that to qualify for the 'Retina display' definition the resolution would only need to be 3,840 x 2,400 if Apple used 'pixel doubling'.
