Riccio: Whether you're looking at photos or text, the picture is stunning. Also increased contrast ratio so whiter whites and blacker blacks.
Now testimonal by a photographer
Will Apple start offering 4K video, perhaps in the iTunes store?
For professional video people, Apple really pushed last year's Mac Pro desktop as 4K-friendly.
Riccio: With its stunning Retina 5K display, the new 27 inch iMac is by far the most amazing iMac we've ever built
Would you buy this as a standalone 5K cinemadisplay?
Video wraps up. Schiller is back on stage
How much? Don't know yet, but it's not gonna be cheap.
Schiller: Not only have we built an iMac with the most incredible display we've ever made, but throughout the product line we've update.
Intel 3.5GHz, quadcore i5. Upgradeable to 4 GhZ.
AMD Radeon R9 295. Upgradeable to 295X
Ah, there's the AMD. Radeon R9 -- the Mac Pro desktop was also AMD-powered for GPU.
Schiller: It's also built together in the most environmentally friendly manner
No talking Intel's delayed Broadwell chips. This is strictly Haswell.
Schiller: What does this amazing state of the art new iMac cost?
Schiller: Let's make a comparison. If you try to buy a new 4K display, not quite as many pixels as iMac. Range from $3000 and more.
Schiller: new iMac with Retina 5K is going to cost $2,499
Pricing on a 4K display? Schiller says $3K. Guess he doesn't shop Monoprice.
Ships today, at $2,499. But old non-5K versions still available, including the recent 21.5-inch, which is essentially a MacBook built into an iMac case.
Schiller: Can't wait for you to see it and experience the incredible images
Schiller: We have one other small update today. Mac Mini
Ok, I might be the only guy more interested in the Mac Mini.
Schiiller: Updated with faster processors, fourth generaiton Intel Core processors, Intel Iris and HD graphics 5000, 802.11 ac Wi-Fi, two Thunderbolt ports, world's most effecient
Haswell CPU and integrated GPU, 802.11ac, that's about it.
Previously started at $599. New one starts at $499
For $499, the least-expensive way to get an OS X machine.
Mac Mini hadn't been refreshed for two years. The device is Apple's most affordable computer, and it has a cult following. An owner must also purchase a display, keyboard, and mouse for the device to work, and the most expensive version of the box also works as an OS X server.
