2020 iMac released: no redesign, nano 5K display, upgraded mics and speakers
The news: The long-awaited iMac is available now…but it’s not the machine with slimmer bezels we were hoping for.
- Faster 10th-generation Intel processors up to 10 cores
- Double the memory capacity (up to 128GB)
- Next-generation AMD graphics
- SSDs now standard across all iMacs
- New nano-texture glass option for less reflectivity
- 1080p FaceTime HD camera
- Higher fidelity speakers
- 3 studio-quality mics
- The design is identical to last year (and many, many years before)
- The new wallpaper is slick, as always
Our take: While I’m happy the new iMac is finally here, it’s certainly nothing to write home about: it’s a spec refresh. I have a feeling that the Apple Silicon refresh, maybe some time next year, is when we’ll see the new iPad Pro-like design with ultra-slim bezels. But I still ordered one of these new iMacs now.
