It’s been rumored for quite some time, but Apple is now ready to unleash some 4K goodness on its entry-level iMac all-in-ones. The new 21.5-inch iMac can be equipped with an optional Retina 4K display that has a screen resolution of 4096x2304, which delivers over 9 million pixels, which is 4.5 times more than what’s available in the base systems. Base models still start at $1,099, which will get you a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, Intel HD Graphics 6000 and a 1920x1080 display. If you add another $200, you’ll get bumped up to a 2.8GHz quad-core Core i5 processor and Iris Pro Graphics 6200.

The early reports were off by a day, but Apple has indeed refreshed its 15-inch MacBook Pro and iMac Retina lineups. You won’t find any external changes to tip you off to the changes that lurk beneath either product line, but they are still quite notable. As previously reported, the 15-inch MacBook Pro has gained a Force Touch trackpad that debuted with the 12-inch MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro. The Force Touch trackpad features what Apple calls a Taptic Engine which provides haptic feedback for the user when “clicking” on its surface. But that’s not all, Apple has also upgraded the 15-inch MacBook Pro’s storage system by including flash storage that is 2.5 times faster than last year’s model.... Read more...
Is this an April Fools joke, a simple error on its part, or a massive, high-profile leak from one of Apple’s largest suppliers? We may never know, but LG Display last week issued a press release announcing its next generation of high-resolution 8K display panels. While the arrival of 8K displays is headline-grabbing in its own right, what makes this reveal so intriguing is the fact that LG managed to slip this peculiar sentence into its press release: “Apple has also announced that they will release the ‘iMac 8K’ with a super-high resolution display later this year.”LG's 8K scale (Source: LG)8K scaling courtesy Wikipedia (Source: Wikimedia Commons) For starters, Apple hasn’t announced anything...
