The new iMacs are much more powerful. They come with the Intel 7th generation Kaby Lake processors. (I know it’s kind of late to introduce these processors at this time because a lot of people are already using them on Windows PC). Moreover, the new line up comes with much better display. Apple calls it “the best Mac display ever,” and it comes with 500 nits of brightness which makes it 43% brighter than the previous generation.
The new iMacs come with two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports which make them the first Apple’s desktop lineup to have USB-C ports.
