Next, we also have improvements in graphics processing units (GPUs). In fact, you can now enjoy Radeon Pro Vega for both iMac models. In addition, it should be noted that the new macOS computers are already available in the official store in Portugal.
MacOS computers in the iMac line are more powerful
Prices start at 1549 € for the Apple iMac 21.5 “with 4K screen and updated specifications. However, the Cupertino technology still sells the iMac of 21.5 “without a 4K screen for 1349 €, being the most accessible of all macOS computers in this line. In short, this model has not undergone any change.
On the other hand, the 27 “models start at € 2199. Also these already with the new configurations (processor and graph of the last generation). You can find these products here at the Apple Store.
We also note that both computers continue to use a hard drive, although in Fusion Drive mode. So it will not be until 2019 that we will announce the end of HDDs on Apple workstations. Still, if you want, you can choose the configuration with a 2 TB SSD.
New RAM and Processor Options for iMac Pro
Now with several new configurations available to consumers, not only, but also to the top line, the iMac Pro. Among the new “extras” we have the Radeon Pro Vega 64X graphics, plus 256 GB of RAM.

Secondly, the base version of the macOS computer costs 5 828.00 € without any extra added. Thus, we have a total of 256 GB of RAM for 6 240 €, DDR4 ECC 2666 MHz. In short, the value of this addition ends up exceeding the initial value of the computer macOS.

Undoubtedly costly, these options add a lot of potential to this macOS computer, which is already extremely powerful. Finally, we can still opt for extra internal storage. Then, if you choose the 4 TB of SSD storage, you have to invest another 3 364.31 €.
