    The Best Desktop Computer. Ever., November 10, 2015

    When Apple introduced the iMac with Retina 5K in Late 2014, it was groundbreaking and it stood alone as the most impressive desktop computer in the world. A year has passed since then, and it still stands alone.

    When it came out, a lot of people felt it was too expensive, but as it stands a year later high quality 4K monitors still cost between $1000 and $2000 or more, just for the monitor. For example, Dell’s 5K monitor is $1600 by itself. Dell Ultra HD 5K Monitor UP2715K 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor. This means that if you bought a Dell tower PC with similar specifications, it would cost far more than the 5K iMac, and it would be stuck running Windows.

    The price of 4K monitors are finally dropping, but 5K has 67% more pixels and when it comes to editing photos and videos, that extra space is a welcome luxury. We’re talking about a screen that can show a 14.7 Megapixel photo, without zooming. That’s simply amazing.

    The other thing to keep in mind is that because the 5K monitor is built-in, it has direct access to the graphics hardware. Using a cable creates a bottleneck because HDMI specs weren’t designed with that kind of resolution in mind. Another benefit of the built-in display is that you know that it will work. If you bought a 5K monitor and tried to plug it into any old PC, you’re going to need an expensive graphics card and a good CPU to keep up with it.

    I can edit and playback 4K video just as seamless as 1080. That’s pretty amazing.

    Another major benefit is Thunderbolt 2, which doubles the speed of the previous generations. It has two Thunderbolt 2 ports, and because the monitor is built-in, you won’t need to use either to connect the monitor.

    PLEASE NOTE: Most Apple Retail stores and Amazon are still only selling the ENTRY LEVEL configuration. To me, that’s like going into the Chevy dealership and to buy the Camaro, but finding out that if you spend just a little bit more, they’ll ship you a Corvette.

    As far as I’m concerned, the price difference for upgrades is so small, that just about everyone who is in the market for this system should upgrade to the 4.0 Ghz i7 and the AMD Radeon R9 M395X with 4GB of GDDR5 memory… that configuration cranks out 3.7 Teraflops of graphics power. That’s about as fast as a Mac Pro.

    In my case, I also upgraded to 512 GB Flash Storage, because speed is more important to me than storage. The stock configurations come with Fusion Drives, which is a mixture of 128GB of flash storage with a conventional hard drive. I’m not a fan of conventional drives… I like the speed, silence and durability of solid state drives.

    I am very happy to have gotten the 27″, November 11, 2015

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This iMac has replaced my 2010 3.2GHz i3 27″ iMac, thats been running daily since purchased. The computer served it’s purpose and exceeded it’s potential for myself. I looked at buying a new iMac about 6 months ago and I ended up not pulling the trigger, with my nearly 6 year old iMac running slow, I’ve decided to look once more. I was getting ready to buy a 21″ iMac, the newest version, but it was pulled out of stock, even though it didn’t say there was a low quantity. I was angry at that, because with the 27″, it’s a $600 leap, but I talked to my wife and she just told me to get it. I am very happy to have gotten the 27″, because this display is well worth it. The new keyboard is amazing, the mouse being the same, but being rechargeable is definitely a bonus since my other mouse was dying and in need of new batteries. The sound quality is amazing on the computer, it has more of a surround sound, sound to it and it’s just a joy to listen to. I was hesitant on buying a new iMac, even though of my great experience I’ve had with my old one, and now that I’ve got it and it’s mine, I remember how it felt when I got my first iMac in 2010. Great machines that are built to last a long time, you truly pay for what you get with Apple.
