If you have seen Apple’s 27-inch Retina 5K iMac in the stores, then you know that it is a thing of beauty. The display is incredibly sharp and while some might debate the need for such a high-end display, one has to admit that it looks good. Unfortunately its price also put it out of reach for a lot of customers, but thankfully that is no longer the case.
Along with the announcement of the updated 15-inch MacBook Pro with the Force Touch trackpad, Apple has also announced a cheaper iMac configuration which starts at $1,999 for the 27-inch 5K model. This particular model will feature a 3.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor and will sport an AMD Radeon R9 M290 GPU.
It will be accompanied by 8GB of RAM, 1TB of storage, and twin Thunderbolt 2 ports. Oddly enough there is no option for users to choose the Apple Fusion drive so that’s something worth considering if you absolutely have to have it. Sounds good so far, right? Now for those who are still hankering for the top of the line model, it seems that Apple has dropped the price on that as well.
Previously the model was priced at $2,499 but it looks like Apple has dropped it by $200 because it is now priced at $2,299, making it slightly more affordable for customers. The specs and configuration remains the same as before except that it comes with a new price tag. If you’d like to place an order, pop on over to the Apple Online Store for the details.
