The smallest Apple iMac trades up to a 4K display, and jumps to newer, but still not the latest, processors. While the design hasn't changed, newly crafted accessories with rechargeable batteries and Lightning connectors add flair and convenience.
The iMac with 5K Retina display now starts at $1,999, but keeps last year's CPUs.
While its sealed-case limitations will turn off power users, Apple's least expensive Mac delivers a solid OS X experience in a compact box with similar performance to the entry-level MacBook Air and iMac models.
Apple skips 4K and goes directly to what the company calls a 5K display in this expensive, extravagant all-in-one iMac desktop that will appeal to photo and video professionals -- or anyone else looking for the best possible screen resolution.
Apple radically re-imagines the professional desktop with the new Mac Pro, featuring a design that looks fantastic and offers genuine breakthrough advantages. But, consumer-level Apple enthusiasts should note that this product isn't specifically targeted at them and DIY upgraders will lament the loss of traditional desktop tower flexibility.

Unless your current iMac is on its last legs though, we'd be inclined to wait and see what the upcoming quad-core version of the 27-inch iMac offers
The iMac is still the best all-in-one desktop on the market. We love the physical design of the system, and the new components on the inside make it very quick.

The Apple Mac Mini is an unquestioned winner among budget desktops, but HP has a small-form-factor PC whose feature set will woo many would-be Mac Mini buyers.
The ultimate small form-factor PC gets even better thanks to the addition of a high-speed, dual-core Intel processor and the latest chipset. It's the perfect machine for anyone who requires a second home PC, and is also ideal for those who want to jump on the shiny white Mac bandwagon without spending a fortune
