These could smack of the nifty.
On Tuesday, Apple announced its 2015 iMacs, including a new 21.5-inch iMac with Retina 4K Display and 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K Display.
The new desktops feature faster processors and graphics, two Thunderbolt 2 ports and up to 2TB of Fusion Drive storage for stock configurations. The 4K 21.5-inch iMac has a 3.1GHz Core i7 Broadwell processor and integrated Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200, while the 5K 27-inch iMacs have 3.2GHz to 3.3GHz Core i5 and i7 Skylake processors and dedicated AMD Radeon R9 GPUs.
The company also debuted the new Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2.
The new Magic Keyboard, which retails for US$99, features Bluetooth for wireless connectivity and a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery that charges fully in about two hours using a Lightning to USB cable. The redesigned keyboard has a reengineered scissor mechanism with 33% more key stability and a lower profile for more precise and comfortable typing.
The new Magic Trackpad 2, which retails for US$129, features Force Touch and a larger edge-to-edge glass design with 29% more surface area. The new Magic Mouse 2, which sells for US$79, also has a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery and redesigned internal structure that includes fewer moving parts. The trio of new wireless accessories are available through Apple and resellers today.
The new 4K 21.5-inch and 5K 27-inch iMacs are available today and start at US$1,499 and US$1,799 respectively. Apple will also continue selling the non-Retina 21.5-inch iMac in two models starting at US$1,099 and US$1,299.
