The new iMac with Retina display will make your desktop radiate in high-resolution glory. This is the most amazing iMac Apple has ever made.

The new iMac with Retina display has a 14.7 million pixels on a 27-inch display in 5210 x 2880. They're calling it a Retina 5K Display. That's way more pixels than even the 4096 x 2160 4K displays we've been seeing on TVs.

Despite the new super high-res display, Apple's maintained a very similar design to the last generation iMac, with an edge that's just 5mm thick.

The iMac with Retina display comes standard with hybrid SSD/HDD 1TB Fusion Drive. It starts with a 3.3 GHz Intel Core i5 processor, AMD Radeon R9 M290X graphics, and 8GB of memory. It's configurable with up to 32GB of memory, a 3TB Fusion Drive, or up to 1TB SSD.

The iMac with Retina display starts at $2500, and it's available from Apple online today.

$2500 is a lot of paper but considering Dell wants to charge $2500 for a 5K display that doesn't even have a computer inside, you start to get a sense that this might be a good value—even if it's not cheap.
