Apple’s new iMac is its fastest computer ever, even faster than previous Mac Pro models, according to Macworld, via MacRumors.

To appreciate the difference, watch this MacRumors video of a user opening a bunch of Mac apps at once. It’s insanely fast.

(This is something current generation MacBook Air owners can attest to vs. those who owned previous generations; the new ones use quick SSDs while the old ones used tiny, slow, spinning hard drives.)
