I need to get a new computer, and have been doing quite a bit of research. My research has been leading me to the newer iMac with the 5K Retina monitor.
Here is some reference material that I have found during my research. I found these links to provide some very useful information, so I thought I would share them with others who may be facing a similar decision:
A good comparison of the features of the iMac vs. those of the Mac Pro.
The host sounds like a bit of a fanboy, but makes many valid points that do seem to be based on facts, and not on his preferences.
If what he says from 1:46 to 21;14 is true, and what he says from 5:38 to 5:56 is also true, then there really is no logical choice other than the 5K iMac if one demands that type of screen resolution.
The Apple One to One program......a HUGE factor in why I am choosing an Apple. Users who are not as computer-illiterate as I, or who live in an area where there are other help sources available, may not find this program to be as helpful as I think it will be for me.
While he entitles his video "Negative Review", he actually has a lot of good things to say about the 27" Retina Display, and little bad to say about it. It seems his main grief with it is the price, which may not be an issue for many who are considering this class of machine.
A discussion about whether to get a fusion drive or an SSD drive in an iMac. The host leans heavily toward the SSD because speed is most important to him, and internal storage space is not so important to him.
"The best photography editing machine that exists anywhere in the world....although are some drawbacks."
I will add more research links as I find them.
In the meantime, I would appreciate any additional insights that you may have to add.
