The all new, 5k Retina iMac if officially official and can be all yours, starting at $2499. Of course if you want bigger and better, it will run you quite a bit more than the base price. It's packing a ton of awesomeness, including a 5120x2880 resolution display, 1TB fusion drive, 8GB of RAM and a 3.5 GHz Intel Core i5 CPU (which is upgradeable) — so it's no slouch when it comes to the desktop space.

"Thirty years after the first Mac changed the world, the new iMac with Retina 5K display running OS X Yosemite is the most insanely great Mac we have ever made," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. "With a breathtaking 14.7 million pixel display, faster CPU and graphics, Fusion Drive, and Thunderbolt 2, it's the most beautiful and powerful iMac ever."

It will ship with OSX Yosemite (which is free to everyone starting today) and is available to purchase from
