Apple iMac Pro vs 27-inch iMac: What's the difference?

Aside from updating existing products like the MacBook with new Kaby Lake processors, and announcing the new Siri-enabled HomePod speaker, Apple chose to use WWDC to please its pro users with new iMac and iMac Pro desktop computers.

The new announcements were made during Apple's important developer conference and as we said a MacBook Pro refresh was also included among other news.

For more information on the new Radeon Pro 500 series jump over to the AMD website for details by following the link below.

The other notable change for the MacBook Pro 2017 has to do with the solid-state drive boost, now 50-percent faster compared to the previous models.

The new iMac Pro won't ship until December, but the speed-bumped iMacs are something pro users can buy today.

Lastly, Apple's powerful new iMacs begin at Rs 90900, Rs 107900, and Rs 148900 for the 21.5-inch non-Retina, 21.5-inch Retina, and 27.5-inch Retina versions, correspondingly. Of course, most entrepreneurs don't need the horsepower (or price tag) that comes with the new iMac Pro, which is probably why Apple also introduced updates to its beloved MacBook line. The 13-inch version starts at $1,299, the same price as the 2015 MacBook.

The company also says the keyboard of the new MacBook also received an upgrade to be more like the MacBook Pro, which means it should be more responsive. So aside from the difference in color of the upcoming 27-inch iMac and the iMac Pro which was described as being seriously badass space grey finish, what are the things to look forward to on iMac Pro?

Reports earlier this year claimed that Apple would break the current 16GB barrier for MacBook Pro memory, allowing the 32GB (or more) that some RAM-craving professionals demand.

Customers will be able to order the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and 12.9-inch iPad Pro starting June 7 at https://www.verizonwireless.com/tablets/ and both models arrive in Verizon stores next week. Speaking of which: Apple will also start to sell external graphics processing hardware that will help video and VR artists to use their iMac for image-heavy computing.

It's much the same story with upgrades: The iMac can be upgraded to a four-core Intel Core i7 processor, up to 64GB of memory, and up to a 2TB SSD. The top-tier Mac Pro, meanwhile, is now powered by a 3.0GHz octa-core Intel Xeon E5 processor, Dual AMD FirePro D700 GPUs and 16 gigs of RAM.

The iMac now comes with Intel's latest seventh-generation Kaby Lake processors.

iOS 11 will add iPad-specific features that have normally been available on Apple's macOS. Some might still find the MacBook a tad expensive for what it has to offer, especially considering that comparable Windows notebooks with similar specs are more affordable, but Apple has always had a loyal fan base.
