Apple (AAPL) announced updates to its line of iMac desktops and MacBook laptops while also unveiling its new iMac Pro at its Worldwide Developers Conference in Santa Clara on Monday.
The company said its line of iMac desktops would be priced between $1,099 and $1,799, with the 4K 21.5" iMac priced at a relatively aggressive $1,299. On the laptop side, the 12" MacBook and MacBook Pro models have been refreshed with Intel (INTC) Kaby Lake CPUs.
Apple's high-end iMac Pro will start at $4,999 and will be available for sale in December. The desktop will support 8, 10 and 18 core Intel Xeon CPUs, as well as AMD's next-gen Vega GPUs.
Meanwhile, Apple used the conference to showcase the progress it has made in virtual reality by showing off the graphics capabilities of its new desktops with aStar Wars-themed VR presentation. Apple, unlike Microsoft (MSFT) , has been late to adopt VR technology on its platforms. But based on the demo on Monday, the company seems to finally be taking VR seriously.
