B&H now has multiple configurations of the new 27″ iMac with Retina 5K display available for pre-order. While the base model is only $2494, I think the one to get is probably the 4GHz Core i7 with 4GB VRAM and only 8GB RAM for $2999. Then pick up some aftermarket OWC or Crucial RAM for a fraction of what Apple charges. Check out all of the configurations here at B&H Photo.

With the upcoming release of OS X Mavericks, Apple has released a new desktop background available at a resolution 5120 x 2880 – or 4x the resolution of the current 27″ LED Cinema Display. [Read more...]
