Apple refreshes MacBook and MacBook Pro at WWDC 2017

The iMacs start at $1,099. "This will be our fastest and most powerful Mac ever, which brings workstation-class computing to iMac for the first time", said John Ternus, Apple's vice president of Hardware Engineering. There's also a 21.5-inch iMac Retina with a 4K display starting at $1299.

Coming along with the new processors is an update to Intel's Iris Pro Graphics 640, which offers better overall performance.

The displays on the current iMac line-up also got an upgrade, with brighter 500nits panels and support for 10-bit dithering that allows the display to output a billion colours on screen. You'll be provided with an option to shell out moolah to include up to 16GB of VRAM and up to 4TB for SSD storage. To that end Apple announced upgrades to almost every single product in its computer line up, and thoroughly fucked over every single person who bought a MacBook Pro back in November.

5K display, plus support for two more 5K displays.

The MacBook Pro 2017 model is nearly certainly going to be shown, but fans who are looking forward to an external overhaul shouldn't get their hopes up as Apple is likely just going to upgrade the machine's internal modules.

iMacs are getting an internal upgrade boosting processing power and display quality.

The new entry-level Retina iMac comes with 1TB of 5400rpm hard disk, but by spending an extra Rs. 17,000 i.e. Rs. 1,24,900 you can get a 1TB Fusion Drive - Apple's flash storage + HDD hybrid - and a faster processor, as well as a better graphics card. It is also expected to get new chips and increased RAM. Nothing to get too excited about, but Apple has been inconsistent with keeping up with the industry, so this is a good step. The announcement also touts the GPU's half-precision computation abilities for machine learning, which doubles the compute power to 22 teraflops. Meet the iMac Pro.

The iMac Pro is targeted at heavy users who demand more from their desktops. Those Thunderbolt ports open up a lot of capability, letting you run two additional 5K display and two high-performance RAID arrays simultaneously.

The tech giant said that its iMac Pro will start at $5,000 and that it would start shipping in December.
