Summary: This computer is beautiful and powerful. I'm always pleased with the quality that Apple creates. It's worth the extra money in my opinion to get the solid hardware/software marriage that Apple provides.
Excerpt: This has got to be the most beautiful desktop ever. Built like a tank and very classy.Apple build standards are just way off the charts. I totally love the crisp and clean display of this iMac. Evenly lighted and very bright.Processing power is also great and the option to add more rams is icing on the cake for this desktop.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Great Display, Great Software
Excerpt: Being a motion graphics and video guy I am not always interested in what's bleeding edge and just released. This computer which has been out a year is rock solid and perfectly balanced. It also runs FCP 7 which I am still using and on a 5K iMac with Yosemite, I might not be so fortunate. Also It does not suffer from overheating, excessive fan noise, or stuttering performance risks like some have experienced with the newer model.
