At its WWDC conference this year, Apple announced a slew of new and exciting products, along with updates to its popular iMac and MacBook lineup.

Apple's 27-inch iMac with the 5K display is starting a price of Rs 148,900 in India and this one comes with the quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, which is clocked at 3.4GHz, 3.5GHz or 3.8GHz.

First of all, there are two display choices: 21-5- or 27-inch iMac. Aside that Apple updated the existing products like the MacBook with Intel's new Kaby Lake processors, the tech company chose to use the conference to please its pro users with its new iMac as well as iMac Pro desktop computers. All the 27-inch models now come with a Fusion Drive as standard, as does the top-end 21.5-inch version. Apple touts that the A10X offers 30 percent faster CPU performance and 40 percent faster graphics performance compared to the A9X, which is the chip found in Apple's old 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models.

iMac also comes with the best Mac display ever, now 43% brighter at 500 nits and with support for 1 billion colors, delivering an even more vivid and true-to-life viewing experience.


"With major updates to iMac, and a refresh of our MacBook and MacBook Pro lines, the Mac is stronger than ever", said John Ternus, Apple's vice-president of Hardware Engineering. Key highlights included the all-new iMac Pro, iPad Pro, and MacBook devices.

The iMac Pro was designed with power users in mind. It has a slower processor than the Mac Pro, and it has one USB-C port. The revitalized MacBook Pro 15-inch with Touch Bar, MacBook Pro 13-inch with Touch Bar, MacBook Pro 13-inch, and MacBook have a price tag of $2,399, $1,799, $1,499, and $1,299 in that order.

Apple hasn't given up on its most serious Mac customers. They changed the performance into the handsome, quiet iMac enclosure.

iMac Pro also supports up to 4TB of SSD and up to 128GB of ECC memory, and with four Thunderbolt 3 ports can connect to up to two high-performance RAID arrays and two 5K displays at the same time.
