Oh look a new 5K iMac dropped

Apple quietly updated its 5K iMac yesterday with tweaks to its CPU and camera, but as with all of Apple’s machines the sting comes in the price-tag. Especially when customising.

The new 27″ 5K iMac internals look largely the same albeit for an update to Intel’s latest 10th-gen i5 & i7 processors and a bump to the latest Radeon GPUs.

Missing from the new versions is Apple’s hybrid Fusion Drive, which I doubt many will miss. Strangely though, the base version, which only has 256GB of storage, cannot be configured to have any more.

A new configuration option that many will be excited about is the introduction of Apple’s “Nano-texture” glass. Essentially a return to a matte screen option is something users have been screaming for essentially since they went away. The downside here is that to have the option you’ll need to fork out another A$500!

Available to order immediately the new 27″ 5K range starts at A$2,799 for the i5 3.1GHz, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Radeon Pro 5300 4GB up to the A$3,549 i7 3.8GHz, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD Radeon Pro 5500 XT 8GB.
