The updated iMac features faster Kaby Lake processors up to 4.2 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 4.5 GHz and supports up to twice the memory as the previous generation. The 13-inch MacBook Pro TouchBar models are cheaper by Rs. 1,000 each at Rs. 1,54,900 and Rs. 1,71,900 respectively for the 256GB and 512GB SSD storage variants.

From brand new iMacs to revamped iPads, Apple has revamped nearly every personal computer and tablet it has to offer, and also showcased its upcoming operating software for new devices. Many important announcements have been made at the event, some focused towards developers and some to attract consumers. The report also mentioned that a source from Foxconn claimed in a post on Reddit that the MacBook Air product line has been discontinued. Each falls into the three-dimensional graph of price, performance, and size in a different spot. More details can be found at apple.com/imac-pro.

As for pricing and availability, the new updated iMac models will be made available for order in the United States starting Monday via company's official online store, apple.com, and will be made available for purchase in the United States starting Wednesday via Apple Stores.

Apple calls this new computer the iMac Pro, and from the dark space grey exterior to the "Pro" moniker, it's clear this isn't your regular iMac.

The Surface desktop is posing some serious competition for Apple, and now we know what Apple thinks of it: look out, Surface, there's more powerful iMac coming. The major highlight of the device will be the next-generation of Intel Xeon processors with up to 18 cores. The iMac Pro will come with a new AMD Radeon Pro Vega discrete graphics cards with up to 16GB of high-bandwidth memory (HBM2) memory.

The new iMac Pro is targeted towards specific set of people, so it doesn't really matter to Apple if the PC market is declining. The new iMac Pro is scheduled to ship in December starting at $4,999. The standard iPad and iPad Mini 4 remain unchanged. The all-new iMac Pro, with its 27-inch Retina 5K display, up to 18-core Xeon processors and up to 22 Teraflops of graphics computation, is the most powerful Mac ever made.

All MacBook Pro refreshes will arrive with Apple's Touch Bar with Touch ID with 500-nit Retina display, and Thunderbolt port.

Second, longevity. The iMac Pro will be a stonking spec when it launches, but of course technology never stands still.

How much will alll this cost? ' The redesign follows the company's admission that the Mac Pro's innovative three-sided central heatsink design fails to allow for the use of a single high-performance graphics card, requiring two lower-performance cards in order to correctly balance the thermal output.

For customers with slightly less workload-heavy needs, the standard iMac desktop is also getting a boost.

What the Mac Pro offers - in its current configuration - is customization and after-sale upgrading by the user, something virtually impossible to do with an iMac.

There was no word on the Mac Pro.
