Apple’s WWDC usually focuses on different OS updates and new applications. The latest conference, though, shifted people’s attention to the hardware part.
We saw lots of new, upgraded devices, like the MacBook and iPad, as well as the HomePod speaker. Apple also brought something exciting for desktop users. Professionals, rejoice, the new iMac and iMac Pro are almost here.
The updated iMac is already available, and let’s take a look at how well it handles video editing, 4K video editing in particular.
It’s getting more and more popular nowadays and always needs a real powerhouse to satisfy the hunger for resources. But let’s take a minute to talk about the new performance boost the iMac received and the specs overall.
The cheapest 21.5-inch iMac starts at $1,099, but bigger diagonal and faster hardware goes as high as $5,299. We are testing a 27-inch unit, which costs $2,899 and comes with the latest Intel Core I7 4.2GHZ processor, 500GB SSD, and 16Gb of RAM.
This is a capable machine, although we feel users might want to add some more RAM and storage. Unless they don’t do a lot of multitasking and use external drives.
