Apple IMac 27" Retina 5K I5 3.5Ghz Review
The Apple iMac 27" Retina 5K i5 3.5Ghz is another great step in the right direction when it comes to development of solid iMac solutions for Apple fans. Although a bit pricey, this iMac model is well worth the money if you decide that you want some solid power packed within an elegant and slim design. Apple computers have come a long way since the beginning, but the basics have always been the same, being preserved this time, as well.
When it comes to specifications, the Apple iMac 27" Retina 5K i5 3.5Ghz is packing quite a lot of power and most of the hardware can be upgraded to something better if and when you need it. The heart of this iMac is an i% processor that runs at 3.5GHz thanks to its quad-core architecture. Aside from this, there is also an instant Turbo Boost mode that takes the CPU up to 3.9GHz when heavy tasks need more juice. In terms of memory, the iMac comes with two 4GB sticks, although there is support for up to 32GB of RAM memory.
Storage has become crucial these days, considering that multimedia content and games are taking up tens of gigabytes in a single shot. If you care about space and if you’re looking for a fast solution, as well, the Apple iMac 27" Retina 5K i5 3.5Ghz comes with a Fusion Drive that has a 1TB capacity. The drive combines the large capacity of usual hard drives with the accessibility and speeds of flash storage, so you won’t have to worry about read and write speeds. The powerful AMD Radeon R9 M290X GPU is also found inside the iMac, making it a suited solution if you want to truly experience the beauty of the Retina 5K display.
Although standard iMacs provide around 4 million pixels on the 27-inch displays, the Retina 5K display manages to take this number up to 14.7 million, in order for crisper graphics to become the standard. Despite the fact that the Apple iMac 27" Retina 5K i5 3.5Ghz is packing a lot of power, it has also become slimmer than its predecessors, its edges being only 5mm thick.
This iMac runs the OS X Yosemite and the overall usage experience should be much friendlier than what you’re already used to. This version of the operating system is tailored to the Retina 5K display. There are a number of interesting features available inside OS X Yosemite, such as AirDrop, iCloud Drive and the Safari Power Saver, but this is not all. The operating system also comes with a wide range of built-in applications that make day-to-day computer usage incredibly friendly. You can check your mail, talk to friends and listen to music without having to open a browser anymore, thanks to the apps provided within OS X Yosemite.
The Apple iMac 27" Retina 5K i5 3.5Ghz does not come alone, as the package also features a wireless keyboard, a magic mouse, and a magic trackpad that will make the overall experience great.
