As Gizmodo notes, Apple has upgraded its 27-inch iMac, as well. However, it’s the 21-inch iMac that has caused most of the excitement. Ars Technica gave Apple’s latest desktop a very positive review.

“The best thing about the 4K iMac is that you don’t have to use a gigantic 27-inch model if you want to get a Retina display. There are plenty of people who prefer the larger screen, but for those who find it intimidating or just too big for their workspace, the 4K model is here and it’s waiting with open arms. The more-than-doubled resolution and Retina scaling modes give it more multitasking potential than the non-Retina iMacs too,” says writer Andrew Cunningham.

Macworld is impressed with the new 4K iMac, as well.

“It offers a lot of screen space but isn’t awkward to maneuver around a table top… Most importantly, it’s got that screen. 9.4 million pixels of screen, making your photos and your webpages and your word-processor documents and even the text of your emails look substantially better than ever before. Retina has arrived on Apple’s most affordable iMac model. You won’t regret the upgrade,” says critic Jason Snell.
