Apple has just announced its new 5K Retina iMac during the October 16 keynote and the device is impressive to say the least. Featuring a 5K resolution (making it “Worlds highest resolution display”) on a 27inch device of course comes at a high cost. So how much is will the new 5K Retina iMac cost?
Taking a look at Apple’s history, we can see that mostly bigger sized devices get a Retina display first, this was the case with the iPad (which got it before the iPhone) and with the 15-inch MacBook (which got it before the 13-inch one, source). But now it is time for the 27inch iMac to receive a Retina display.
During its presentation, Apple announced that the new Retina iMac will cost $2,499. While some of you might be surprised at this high price, it is actually cheap, as Apple mentioned during its keynote a standard 4K monitor for your PC these days costs about $2000 to $3000, the Retina Mac is just $2,499 and is both a monitor + a computer. Of course, you can configure and upgrade the specs of the device, a maxed out Retina iMac will cost you about $4000.
