Unboxing Apple's 'ginormous' new 27-inch Retina 5K iMac

Apple's newest iMac and desktop accessories are here, so let's rip the packaging open and get a closer look.
For 2015, Apple updated its 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs to feature new screens and a host of internal hardware improvements, maintaining their status as the best all-in-one machines youcan buy. Apple also revamped its wireless keyboard, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad, finally doing away with the need for pesky AA batteries.
The design hasn't changed at all, but the ultra-thin iMac was already gorgeous, so this isn't really an issue. For the accessories, the look has changed subtly: The keyboard gets Apple's new San Francisco font, and the trackpad is now white.
If these freshly upgraded machines sound appealing to you, they're available for purchase on Apple's website right now. And before you laugh at my usage of "ginormous" in the headline, those are Apple's words, not mine.

A screen to die for

The 5,120 x 2,880 5K display on Apple's 2015 iMac is simply best-in-class.

  • Business in the back

    The iMac has four USB 3.0 ports, an SDXC card slot, two Thunderbolt 2 ports and a Gigabit Ethernet port.

  • Wider color gamut

    The late-2015 iMac features a wider color gamut which means there are 25% more colors available to display. Greens and reds especially pop.
  • New Magic accessories

    Along with the new iMac, Apple has updated its wireless keyboard, mouse and trackpad accessories
  • Same classic Magic Mouse look

    The outside of the new Magic Mouse 2 looks the same. But turn it over...
  • Look mom, no batteries

    The Magic Mouse 2 has a built-in rechargeable battery and improved feed. To charge the mouse, just plug in a Lightning cable into the bottom.
  • A new Magic Trackpad

    The Magic Trackpad 2 has 30% more surface area, is white and supports Force Touch.
  • Type on me

    The Magic Keyboard takes up less space than the old keyboard but features larger keycaps and full-size function keys.
  • Sleek and svelte

    The rechargeable battery means the Magic Keyboard has a slightly lower incline.
  • Two of a kind
