That looks awesome!

I would particularly like the 4TB SSD drive.

Only problem, it's still just a 27" monitor - I love my 5K 27" iMac, but would love it more if it was around 34 or 35 inches. This new release still being just 27" makes me fear that we will never get the really big 5K iMac that I have been longing for for so long.

This doesn't really answer many of the problems with the iMac though. You are still stuck with a very limited non-expandable form factor, to the point that you don't even have room for adding additional internal storage etc. Four Terabytes of fast storage is nice, but it's not necessarily the optimum storage paradigm, especially for those tasks that this system is intended for.

If you really want the ultimate in an all in one computer I would have thought that would be the child of an iMac and a Mac Mini. make the base of the unit laeger so that you have room to add additional storage etc internally, with direct access to the system bus. Thunderbolt might be the fastest peripheral connection bus yet, but nothing beats being on the system bus. Also at the point where you have to add devices in an external peripheral enclosure over an external serial bus you also cease to have an all in one system, which supposedly was the whole point of the iMac all along.

What is great to see is that Apple have finally released a wireless keyboard with an integrated numeric keypad. That was another thing that really annoyed me about the Mac world, Apple had a thing against anyone who was often inputting largish quantities of numerical data. Maybe we might even see a keypad incorporated in one of the larger Macbook Pro series, like you see in just about every Windows based laptop with a 15" or larger screen. If I'm inputting data to a laptop there is a very good chance I might even be using it on my lap, or in some other limited space where using an external wired keypad is going to be a problem.

I got the new 27" 5k iMac, I got the i5, but the 64gb version. I love it, but would be great if it had just a bit larger screen. I'm surprised at how it is noticeably faster than my 2014 5k iMac. I know all the stuff is faster, but I always thought you get to a point were it's not visibly faster. I notice an increase in speed with Lightroom and running filters on very large files in photoshop.

I wish Apple would put out a 27" 5k Cinema display, paired with my new iMac, that would be a perfect setup for me.

As far as the All-In-One, obviously there has been a big demand for it. I can't imagine needing more that 4 TBs of flash storage to work on a project. You could work on 9 hours of 4k video and still have 1TB left, I don't know of anyone that uses internal drives for long-term storage.

With any luck it'll perform nicely as a hair dryer.

I am pretty sure that Apple said there would be one with the introduction of the new Mac Pro coming possibly next year.

I am a little confused by what you have said.

At first, you say that you love your 27" iMac, but wish that it had a larger screen. . Then you say that a 27" cinema screen would be the perfect setup. . So on one hand it sounds like you would like something bigger than 27", but then on the other hand it sounds like you think the 27" size is perfect. . Could you please resolve these statements?

Thanks

What I am saying is that I love the all-in-one iMac, but wish it had an option for a 32" display. Since that size isn't available, adding a 27" Cinema display to the 27" iMac (dual 27" 5k monitors) would be, in my opinion, the perfect setup.

I've become used to having all the tools on one monitor and the full image on the other, using an external monitor with my macBook Pro. I do fine detail editing with the Apple Pencil and larger iPad Pro.

Thunderbolt provides direct access to the PCI-E bus and with Thunderbolt 3 providing 40Gbit/s bandwidth, you are essentially taking full advantage of that fact.

We are in a disposable world now as far as computers and devices are concerned. I used to love building and upgrading PC's years back, but now id much rather have a great looking, great performing laptop like a macbook pro or an all in one iMac that I just replace every few years.

Thanks to advances in connectivity such as Thunderbolt and USB 3.1, I know I can simply attach extra storage and peripherals without a performance hit.

Also, I think 27" is the perfect size for a monitor around the 4k/5k resolution mark. Good pixel density and good size/viewing distance ratio. If you go bigger, you're going to need more resolution, but more importantly, you will have to start turning your head when using your computer screen... Which is bad.

Hey - that's what I did a couple years ago - moved from a 2008 24" iMac to a new 27". The difference is significant, and I think you'll enjoy the upgrade.

Ine 2 years of using a 27" you'll find them to be too little LOL. You get spoiled!!!! I'm running 2 27" Mac Displays on my MAC PRO and I'm just craving more :(. Too bad Mac is out of the display business now :(
