WAIT! You said 4K on an 21.5 inch iMac? Yep, that’s right! Apple secretly released a new line of iMacs yesterday.
These 21.5 iMacs now have retina display. The resolution of this iMac is 4,096 x 2,304 which is 4K. These displays are truely beautiful. The color accuracy has improved to make colors more richer and sharper! Unfortunately, the 21.5inch iMacs no longer have the choice of a discrete graphics card anymore. All the 21.5 iMacs now run using Intel integrated graphics, which shares your system memory to the interpreted card. Intel chipsets aren’t bad for 4K. They actually do really well, until you start to play games on them. Apple chose to use the Intel iris pro graphics which are worlds better then the Intel HD xxxx graphics.
The specs on this iMac aren’t the best but, they will get the job done. iMac (2015, 21.5-inch, 3.1GHz quad-core Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, Iris Pro 6200 Graphics). The HDD is a 5,400RPM Hard Drive which is 1TB. Not the fastest drive in the world but again, you can upgrade the HDD when you select to buy out of these iMacs.
Oh, YES! They do come with the new Magic Keyboard and the Magic Mouse 2. Which are both rechargeable. Overall this is a wonderful upgrade that Apple has done.
The 21.5 inch iMacs with start at $1,499.00. You can upgrade the specs to an Fusion Drive, more RAM, etc.
