Apple iMac 2017 may be equipped with the freshly announced Intel Kaby Lake processors, according to several reports, with the device expected to be launched in March of this year.
Fans want to see the 27-inch Apple iMac with the S-series desktop chips while speaking of the smaller 21.5-inch iMacs, there won’t be almost any updates. The starting price of the 27-inch version that comes with 32GB of Ram and 2TB Fusion Drive will be $3,199.99. This computer could come equipped with a 5K display, while VR support is also an option.
The 27-inch Apple iMac 2017 will be offered with Core i5-7500, Core i5-7600 or the Core i7-7700K, as PC Advisor says. For the iMac 2017, Apple may opt for an AMD Polaris 10 graphic unit, while rumor has it that the new computer will have 10 USB 3.0 ports. Last time we had a chance to see the new iMac was when it was launched in 2015 with new Retina screens, while the larger models had the Skylake processors. Ever since 2015, the fans have been waiting for new iMac with enhanced specs and features and everything points out that the 2017 model will arrive soon.
The desktop segment is still essential for the Cupertino-based tech giant, and besides Apple iMac 2017, there are some other Macs in the pipeline. The smartphone segment has always been the best for this company, and every new iPhone broke some records. Even the CEO Tim Cook confirmed that the new iMac 2017 is being developed and that desktops are still a key for the company.
At a special event in October, Apple released a MacBook Pro with a Touch Bar above the keyboard. Back then, there wasn’t even a word about the new 2017 Apple iMac, leaving the fans disappointed. The good news is that the new device is coming, and the fans can cheer up now.
