IMac Pro and new iMac first look: Apple's VR-ready machines

IMac Pro is the most powerful computer Apple has ever announced.

The new iMac is claimed to feature the best Mac display ever as it is said to be 43% brighter with a peek brightness of 500 nits. The $2,299 iMac comes with a four-core 3.8GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, 8GB AMD Radeon Pro 580 VR-ready graphics, and a 2TB Fusion drive. 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?

The fully upgraded iMac goes for $5,299, but we're not privy to the final iMac Pro pricing yet.

As for the software running on all these machines, WWDC also saw Apple announce macOS High Sierra, the successor to last year's Sierra. The updated iMac is available to buy in Apple Stores starting on Wednesday, June 7. "We're also increasing CPU and SSD speed on MacBook, adding faster processors and making faster graphics standard on our 15-inch MacBook Pro and introducing a new $1,299 (US) 13-inch MacBook Pro", he added.
