Apple boosts iMac screen resolution, lowers price of top-end 27-in. machine by 8 percent

Adds Retina display to priciest 21.5-in. iMac, standardizes on 5K Retina for larger desktops

Also yesterday, Apple introduced a new keyboard, mouse and trackpad for its Macs, replacing the AA-battery-powered predecessors with second-generation gear that includes rechargeable batteries brought back to life by plugging them into a Mac's USB port or one of the ubiquitous Apple chargers that litter homes with iPhones and iPads.

The $129 Magic Trackpad 2, for example, is about 30% larger than its forerunner, introduces Force Touch technology to the desktop -- Apple's already dropped it into the MacBook Pro laptops -- and sans the AA battery bulge at the back, sports a slimmer profile than the 2010 original. But at $129, it's almost double the price of the older trackpad.

Apple's new iMacs and accessories were available since yesterday, with Friday delivery with the free shipping option.
