Verizon Opens Preorder for New iPad Pros #49869 - 06/07/17 02:27 PM

When it comes to the display, MacWorld reported that both the iMac and iMac Pro, except for the former's entry level model, feature new retina displays.

Faster Kaby Lake processors (up to 4.2GHz with Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz) are now included and there's support for up to twice the memory of the previous generation. This will be our most powerful and fastest Mac ever, which carries workstation-class computing to iMac for the first time. If you want more power and that insane 5K display (it's gonna cost you!) then go with one of the 27-inch models. Moreover, it also comes with a new display that is 43 percent brighter.

Apple Monday kick started its annual three-day developer conference by launching an updated iMac Pro. The 13-inch MacBook Air also got a faster processor in a rare update. "The 27" iMac will give buyers a choice of the Radeon Pro 570, Radeon Pro 575, and Radeon Pro 580 graphics processors with up to 8GB of RAM. The 13-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,300 with function keys, or $1800 with the touch bar.

If you're looking exclusively for a machine to run your new HTC Vive, the iMac Pro may not be the best place to play. You'll have to wait until December for it, but if you do, you'll be rewarded with an 8-core Xeon processor and the AMD Radeon Vega GPU.

AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon will offer the all-new 10.5-inch and a new 12.9-inch iPad Pro from the 12-18 June week.

On the outside the iMac Pro resembles its less gutsy brethren but features Apple Space Grey colour scheme rather than the silvery white associated with iMacs. Apple said the system is designed for "advanced graphics editing, virtual reality content creation and real-time 3D rendering".

"The iPad Pro range has also been pimped up to offer more power to DJs and producers with a new 10.5" model being introduced.

The iMac Pro is slated to ship sometime in December 2017, and you can sign up for notifications about preordering now. Apart from the external changes, the new iMac Pro also boasts of a new thermal architecture that makes room for the new components. The good news, then, is that the standard iMac has been given a welcome update. What do you guys think of the iMac Pro? .
