The iMac (27-inch Retina 5K, 3.2GHz Intel Core i5, Late 2015) screen introduced in October, 2015 sports the newest innovating quad core processor Intel Core-i5 Skylake and a Fusion Drive as a standard storage.

This is the all-in-one desktop computer in an ultra-thin (5 mm depth at the edges) all-aluminum unibody casing behind the 27” LED-backlit IPS widescreen Retina 5K display. There’s a bulge though in the center of the back panel to house all the hardware. The computer is mounted on an aluminum stand with a slightly tapered foot and an adjusting hinge.
