Apple Unveils Powerful New iMac Pro

Of course, most entrepreneurs don't need the horsepower (or price tag) that comes with the new iMac Pro, which is probably why Apple also introduced updates to its beloved MacBook line. The 27-inch Retina display is not only 5K, but can also support 1 billion colours when switched on, making it flawless for video and image production.

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. DDR4 variety was used for RAM and it is now up to 32 GB on 21.5-inch and 64 GB on the 27-inch model.

Having been accused of neglecting its pro customers for the past few years, Apple has responded by announcing its "most powerful Mac ever" in the form of the iMac Pro.

The 21.5-inch model will come with an Intel Iris Plus 640 GPU, while the 4K 21.5-inch models will feature Radeon Pro 555 and 560 graphics cards. With faster SSDs also coming to the iMac and MacBook and a screen upgrade to 500 nits and 1 billion colors for the iMac, the Mac hardware changes were considerable despite the lack of any external redesigns.

Apple's new iMac will launch just in time for the holiday season starting at $4,999.

A new processor chip - the A10X Fusion - makes the new iPad Pro up to 30 per cent faster, Apple says.

Now for the pricing, the MacBook costs $1299 for the base model while the MacBook Pro with function keys will start at the same $1299.

The updated iMac lineup will have two USB Type-C connectors along with the Thunderbolt.

Despite the massive leap in computational power, Apple claims they will be able to maintain the same thin iMac design by increasing the cooling efficiency by up to 80%.
