Apple iMac 5K Purchased and Arrived: It’s a Keeper for Professional Use, which is Unprecedented

The loaner review model went back, but today the late 2015 iMac 5K arrives as a permanent addition for Lloyd’s professional photography work. Money spent as an investment in saving time, previewing very high resolution images for publication, etc.

The late 2015 iMac 5K elbows into the professional scene, an unprecedented statement for MPG to make, particularly for heavy-duty Photoshop work for professional photography.

The fact that the late 2015 iMac 5K can take 64GB of memory* is critical for professional users, but then there is also its superiority over a 3.3 GHz Mac Pro on Lloyd’s most critical task. Add the blazingly fast SSD which translates to substantial gains on real world tasks and it’s a winner.

Memory: see Apple iMac 5K: 8GB and 16GB Configurations can *ADD* Memory While Keeping the Two Modules You Already Paid For.

The 14.7-megapixel iMac 5K display is a wonder to behold: unprecedented detail, contrast and pleasing color, a total combination that has no peer for sheer eye-popping beauty. That said, the iMac 5K display is not the best choice for professional image editing (pixel density is too high) or color management (not there), but that is easily solved with a wide gamut display. If the iMac 5K display were offered as a display only, say at $1629, it would be worth it.

So why not get a discounted entry-level late 2015 iMac 5K, if only for sheer viewing pleasure (the 5K display includes a free built-in computer). But of course MPG recommends the high end iMac 5K for power users, along with 64GB OWC memory (don’t throw away money on Apple memory).
