Apple’s new 21.5-inch iMacs will feature a 4K Retina display, tech reporter Steven Levy writes on Medium.
State-of-the-art 5K Retina display technology was introduced in the 27-inch iMac just last year. The new 21.5-inch model will have the same pixel density as the larger version and nearly 5 times the resolution of Full HD.
This new display will make images and text on the smaller screen much sharper. The screens were originally capable of showing 100% of SRGB (Standard Red Green Blue), which is more than can be said for a lot of other desktop computers. It will now show a new color standard called P3, which provides a 25% wider range of colors that Levy writes will allow you to see “startlingly detailed photos and scalpel-sharp text display.”
The new monitors, which are available today, include additional new features as well. The mouse is now lighter with reshaped “mouse feet” that eliminate an irritating noise issue and allow it to be handled more smoothly. The iMac now has a wireless keyboard that’s smaller overall, but has larger buttons, and a Magic Trackpad with Force Touch support, both of which can be recharged through a port on the device that has been labeled “lightning.”
