To start with, Apple has finally teased a new iMac Pro and has finally updated the old iMac series during the event.

On the outside the iMac Pro resembles its less gutsy brethren but features Apple Space Grey colour scheme rather than the silvery white associated with iMacs.

The updated iMac features faster Kaby Lake processors up to 4.2GHz with Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz and supports up to twice the memory as the previous generation.

Along with the new iMac internals, the new models will come with a pair of USB-C ports, as well as Apple's hybrid fusion hard drives, standard.

Apple iMac Pro personal computer comes with the new Radeon Pro Vega GPU, the most advanced graphics ever in a Mac.

Coming to the 13-inch MacBook Pro, it features the latest Intel Kaby Lake processors up to 3.5 GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 4.0 GHz, and the 15-inch MacBook Pro goes up to 3.1 GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 4.1 GHz.

Apple looks like it's touting the new iMac Pro as the firm's most powerful Mac computer ever in the history.

The iMac Pro is scheduled to launch in December, with a United States retail price starting at $4,999 - which, given the current exchange rate and Value-Added Tax, will work out to £4,999 in the UK.

On Monday, Apple announced a slew of new updates for its iMac desktop and MacBook laptops.

That specification will set buyers back by $4,999 (£3,870), higher specifications which include 10 and 18 core Xeon chips and up to 128GB or ECC memory, will push that princely sum up another notch. The iMac Retina 4K 21.5-inch, meanwhile, will have a Radeon Pro 555 or 560 and up to 4GB VRAM. This CPU grunt is paired with AMD's Radeon Pro 56 or 64 Vega-based graphics processors, offering 11 trillion floating-point operations per second (T/FLOPS) of single-precision compute and 16GB of High-Bandwidth Memory 2 (HBM2) on-package. Apple also confirmed that the standard iMac lineup will ship with new 7th generation Intel Kaby Lake processors, at up to 4.2 GHz with Turbo Boost or up to 4.5 GHz. And for half-precision computation, ideal for machine learning, iMac Pro delivers up to an incredible 22 Teraflops of performance. The prices remain largely the same across the board, aside from a newly-cheaper 13-inch MacBook Pro for $1,299. The 21.5-inch model delivers up to three times faster performance, and the 27-inch model is up to 50 percent faster, as per company's claim.
