Apple Launches New 4K & 5K iMacs, Magic Keyboard,
Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2
Apple today announced that it has updated its iMac lineup,
introducing new 21.5-inch iMac with Retina 4K Display and
27-inch iMac with Retina 5K Display models.

The all-new desktop computers 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.

"From the first iMac to today, the spirit of
iMac has never wavered ã deliver the ultimate
desktop experience with the latest
technologies, gorgeous displays and
cutting-edge designs," said Philip Schiller,
Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide
Marketing. "These are the most stunning iMacs
we've ever made. With our gorgeous new Retina
displays, more powerful processors and
graphics and all-new Magic accessories, the
new iMac continues to redefine the ultimate
desktop experience."

Apple has also launched all-new Magic accessories,
including the Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic
Trackpad 2.

The new Magic Keyboard, 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, US$129, features Force Touch
and a larger edge-to-edge glass design with 29% more
surface area. The new Magic Mouse 2, 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 iMac are available
today through the Apple Store, Apple Online Store and
select authorized resellers, with pricing starting 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.

The new iMacs include a Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2
in the box.

So where's the updated *proper* keyboard with a numeric keypad. :-(
Never mind, the existing version is better anyway thanks to not relying
on silly batteries that run out just when you need them not to and wear
out to uselessness.
