Apple just revealed its newest desktop to the world. You can get your hands on an iMac with Retina Display, which boasts a 5K screen. That amounts to a resolution of 5,120 x 2,880 pixels.
Not only does this screen offer loads more pixels than 1080p (1,920 x 1,080 pixel) displays do, but the iMac with Retina Display also surpasses what 4K (3,840 x 2,160 pixel) screens boast by a wide margin.
However, as Apple touted its newest rig, we couldn’t help but wonder how it stacks up against its closest sibling, along with its biggest competitor. Here, we take a look at how the non-Retina 27-inch iMac and the Dell XPS 27 Touch stack up against the new iMac with Retina Display.
