iMac (27-inch Retina 5K, 4.0GHz Core i7, Late 2015)

The iMac (27-inch Retina 5K, 4.0GHz Intel Core i7, Late 2015) is a built-to-order iteration of the iMac (27-inch Retina 5K, 3.2GHz Intel Core i5, Late 2015) or the iMac (27-inch Retina 5K, 3.3GHz Intel Core i5, Late 2015) but with the top-class Core-i7 Skylake processor designed for overclocking. The desktop exterior design is similar to the iMacs of 2012. 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.

The iMac (27-inch Retina 5K, 4.0GHz Intel Core i7, Late 2015) features a quad core 3.2GHz Intel Core i7 I7- 6700K processor (Skylake), with four independent processor cores on a single chip, DMI system bus and an integrated graphics core, 8 GB of RAM, a 1 TB or a 2 TB Fusion Drive, an SD memory slot card reader, an AMD Radeon R9 M390 / M395 graphics with 2 GB of shared memory, a built-in FaceTime HD webcam and stereo speakers, as well as two “Thunderbolt-2” ports and 4 USB 3.0 ports. It also has built-in AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 4.0. The cooling system is CPU controlled and the in-built speakers are mounted beneath the 27-inch screen for the clearer less distorted sound to bounce off the desk or other surface. The speakers’ grills also work as the vent ones. The iMac (27-inch Retina 5K, 4.0GHz Core i7, Late 2015) is shipped with a compact aluminum Apple Wireless Keyboard and either with a “Magic Mouse – 2” or a traditional wired Apple Mouse or a multi-touch Magic Trackpad. Upgrade from “Magic Mouse – 2” to a Magic Trackpad-2 is optional for an extra cost.
