The idea behind iMac has never wavered: to craft the ultimate desktop experience. The best display, paired with high-performance processors, graphics, and storage — all within an incredibly thin, seamless enclosure. And that commitment continues with the all-new 21.5‑inch iMac with Retina 4K display. Like the revolutionary 27‑inch 5K model, it delivers such spectacular image quality that everything else around you seems to disappear. Adding up to the most immersive iMac experience yet — and another big, beautiful step forward.
The most stunningly powerful iMac yet.
You know iMac by its incredibly thin enclosure. But that just sets the stage for massive performance. With a new Intel Core processor, the latest AMD graphics, advanced Fusion Drive options, and Thunderbolt 2, iMac delivers lightning-fast speed. And striking power.
Built for speed
A fifth-generation Intel Core processor in the 21.5-inch iMac.— and 1600MHz memory. You couldn’t ask for more speed. Yet Turbo Boost 2.0 gives you even more when you’re using processor-intensive applications like Logic Pro or Final Cut Pro. It all takes place behind the scenes, but you’ll see the difference in performance.
Performance right to the core
Turbo Boost 2.0, which comes standard on iMac with Retina display, gives you an automatic increase in speed when you’re using a processor-intensive application like Logic Pro or Final Cut Pro. And by shifting core frequency in small increments, Turbo Boost allows the processor to manage performance without sacrificing efficiency. All this takes place behind the scenes, so your work — and play — goes smoother and faster.
The latest Intel Iris Pro graphics.
All the pixels in the world won’t do you any good if you can’t quickly and efficiently command them into action. That’s why iMac with Retina display features the latest Intel high-performance graphics. So you experience stunning motion graphics, jaw-dropping visual effects, and 3D graphics so true to life that you’ll feel like you’re part of the action.
Great built-in apps for work and play.
Every new Mac comes with Photos, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. So you can be creative with your photos, videos, music, documents, spreadsheets, and presentations right from the start. You also get great apps for email, surfing the web, sending texts, and making FaceTime calls — there’s even an app for finding new apps.
The world’s most advanced desktop operating system.
OS X is what makes a Mac a Mac. Not only is it designed to be intuitive and easy to use, but it’s also engineered to take full advantage of the Retina display, so you’ll see everything on your desktop with stunning clarity. It features an incredible collection of apps you’ll use — and love — every day. And it’s designed to enable your Mac and iOS devices to work together in amazing ways.
