Yup. That’s right.

In the last keynote event in September, the classic one-liner “one more thing” was missing and it was probably missing intentionally as that “one more thing” was announced just today, in the form of updated iMac.

More notably, the smaller of the two-model iMac lineup will get the option of 4K, which provides 4 fold in resolution. While it may seem like the 27-inch model aren’t going anywhere with display resolution, Apple surprises us with Retina 5K display – now available across all 27-inch iMac and not just for the range-topper.

for hardcore PC gamers, customizing peripherals like the mouse to suit your gaming style is not an option and with that in mind, Logitech wants its new G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse (quite a mouthful, eh?) to have the customization aspect covered. starting off with a sensor that offers a huge DPI range of 200 all the way up to 12,000 with zero sensor acceleration, zero smoothing or filtering, and zero pixel rounding – allowing an astounding track movement at 300 inches per second. high-resolution aside, what really makes this gaming mouse stands out is the ability to calibrate the sensor based on the gaming surface that you are using it on, regardless whether you are using it on hard or soft, dark or light mouse pads.

running on Windows 8, but lack of a touchscreen to fully optimized the the latest Windows OS’s multitouch gestures functionality? no worries at all cos’ ASUS has just the answer for that: the ASUS VivoMouse Wireless TouchPad Mouse. aesthetically, this 3-in-1 input device looks suspiciously like the remote from the comedy Click (except it looks a little less ‘comical’), but less the funky life forwarding/skipping and pause buttons. speaking of remote, this little guy is also a handy remote control that gives you one-handed control away from your desktop and the large circular thing there, is a touchpad that offers full support for Windows 8 multitouch gestures. of course, by nature, it is also a regular optical mouse too. so there you have it, a single sleek input device that does it all. so, who really cares if your PC’s display is not touchscreen capable? cos’ this mouse will take care of that.

nuts about Iron Man? then you probably have amassed a slew of its official merchandise, but we bet a wireless mouse isn’t one of them. well, fret not Iron Man-natics, now you can complete your metal-clad superhero altar with this Officially Licensed Iron Man Mouse served up by Japanese firm e-Blue, otherwise known as E-3LUE (don’t ask us why). powered by a pair of AAA batteries, this gold and hot-rod red computer peripheral is crafted in the likeness of the big screen Iron Man’s mask and boast a resolution of 1,000 dpi and of course, light-up eyes. so why a mask instead of the iconic Arc Reactor? we have absolutely no idea, but logic tells us that the mask might be a better (palm) fit as a practical mouse than the puck-like LED-laden thingy. don’t you think so? no word if this awesome mouse will be made available to the USA, or to the rest of the world for that matter, but from what we hear, it will be available to the Chinese market for 699 Chinese money (or about US$113).
