For photographers and videographers looking for high performance and superior screen color gamut, MPG recommends the late 2015 iMac 5K for its wide color gamut and ultra high performance SSD. That is, this late 2015 iMac 5K model in particular, upgraded to 32GB or 64GB memory.
Note: working with 4K video on a 5K display is nice: even full 4K (4096 wide) fits entirely with room to spare on the display.
Save money on 32GB or 64GB OWC memory for late 2015 iMac 5K (~$400 savings vs Apple!).
