Hi-res iMac and Displays Coming this Fall

Of interest to our Mac-using friends, which the majority are - might find this news interesting. The discovery of a Retina-equipped iMac referenced in an OS X 10.10 Yosemite file (French) (in English via Google) follows the recent news of OS X 10.9.3, which Cupertino released last month, adding “true” Retina display support for external 4K monitors. While 4K monitors exist on the market, short of the really expensive ones - they're not all that good (yet). That may soon change however, as Intel, display makers join forces to introduce $400 4K monitors by year's end. Stands to reason that besides a new iMac, a new Apple Thunderbolt Display is also in the works - which would complement the Mac Pro (designed with video editing in mind).

Now all that's missing is a fresh copy of Adobe Lightroom 6 and you'll be in photo editing heaven!

The file includes a series of scaling resolution options for this machine, maxing out at 6400 x 3600 pixels, or 3200 x 1800 as a Retina display. The display itself would carry a somewhat lower native resolution, perhaps 5120 x 2880 to simply pixel double the current 27-inch iMac, but as with the Retina MacBook Pro higher resolutions are specified and generated by the machine before being scaled back down.
