Apple at an event launched a completely new iMac. The 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display has the highest resolution screen in the world. The screen has a 5K display which is seven times more than the pixels of a normal HDTV. The screen of the iMac is built upon the technology Apple uses for its iPhone and iPad.
The new Retina iMac is just 5mm in thickness which is same as previous iMac. In order to maximize details, the display has a greater contrast ratio.

The recently launched iPad Mini 3 is 45% faster in terms of graphics than the last version. 27-inch iMac with 5K Retina display also has a thunderbolt 2 port that ensures faster IO transfers.
