New 21.5-Inch Apple iMac Announced With 4K Display

Publish date:

The little brother of the iMac family is finally going 4K. The 21.5-inch iMac is being updated today with a faster processor, faster RAM, and improved graphics, but the most exciting announcement is that it's now going to house a beautiful 4K display.

This means that every Apple iMac model now has either the option of 4K or better.

The 21.5-inch iMac is also getting a much-needed spec refresh. The line hasn't been updated in over two years so it was time for an upgrade. They will now house Intel's Broadwell processors. The 4K iMac's will now come with a 3.1GHz quad-core i5 - definitely worth the upgrade. The RAM, although less of an upgrade, still has one going from 8GB of 1600MHz LPDDR3 to 8GB of 1867GHz LPDDR3, upgradeable to 16GB.
