Apple Releases New 27-Inch iMac Model

The new 27-inch 5K iMac is an all-around improvement on the previous version, but not a new design. The new Intel processors are faster, and new GPUs are also available. The FaceTime camera is now at 1080p and there is an option for the same Nano Texture screen finish as the Apple Pro Display XDR. Fusion drives are now completely gone as an option, with SSDs ranging from 256GB to 9TB.

Prices start at $1,799 and can run as high as $8,799 with maximum RAM, storage and options. It is available for order now.

    almost bought one i was on apple and was in the bag but i really don’t know i am 75 and have a 2011 iMac and in between thinking. i heard that you might not be able to upgrade the ram on the silacon version and it may be a long time before it comes to iMac, i could really need some advice.thank you.💚

    Timothy: Is upgrading the RAM really something you need? And if you do, why not just get that extra RAM now and enjoy it over the entire lifetime of the iMac?

    Timothy, you could pick up additional RAM at OWC for much, much less than adding it on through Apple at the time of purchase. From what I read, it is simple to install. I’m in the same boat as you. I have a 2010 iMac and am thinking I’m going to jump on this one. I do a lot of stuff with photography so wanted the extra RAM. I did add extra RAM on my 2010 iMac (through a 3rd party – probably crucial.com at the time). I’m 70 if that helps – so us guys can still do it! :)

    Gary,
    I have a 2010 iMac with a 1TB HD. It’s 3/4 full. Looking at the new Macs,would you have a suggestion? 1TB, 2 TB (or 512GB and move my photo library,etc off to something external?). I save photos/documents to the Cloud but do not have it set to optimize so my photo files still reside on my machine. I use time machine (2TB) and Backblaze. Currently my storage is showing 232GB of photos, 211GB of Documents, 150GB iTunes, and then misc.Under recommendations, I have optimize storage checked

    Mark: Get as much as you can afford. If you are almost full on a 1 TB, then why consider the same or less? Thunk of 4 years from now. So why not get 2 TB, at least? Storing things externally is often a pain in many ways. If you can afford it, get enough internal storage to house everything you need on a regular basis.

    Gary,
    Thanks! Might as well do 2TB. Figure that should last me 10 years and if I’m still kicking at 80, well a 10TB by that time will be nothing! :) I can spread it over 12 months with Apple Card, so that is some help (and get 3% off in the process)

    Hi Gary –
    Do you think the 2020 27″ iMac with the 10 core CPU, 64GB and the Radion Pro 5700 XT 8GB will be able to run Microsoft Flight Simulator on top of Bootcamp with passable performance?
    Thanks,

    Michael: It should, right? I mean that’s a lot of power. It should run it just as well as the same specs for a Windows machine. That’s my guess anyway.
