Coming Soon for Review: 2017 iMac 5K

Update: the OWC 64GB memory kit for the 2017 iMac 5K worked flawlessly for all the review testing.

Coming soon for review courtesy of B&H Photo is the 2017 Apple iMac 5K 4.2 GHz / 8GB / 1TB / Radeon Pro 580. Ordered with 8GB memory to save about $820; to be tested with 64GB.

I'd prefer the 2TB SSD but it gets pricey and 1TB is good for most users. Videographers and Adobe Lightroom users with very large catalogs should opt for the 2TB SSD model.

Since I own the late 2015 iMac 5K, I can do a head-to-head to see how much better the 2017 model is. Aside from Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.1 gen 2, I don’t expect much difference, but I hope to be surprised in some unexpected way.

In general the things I strongly recommend are the fastest CPU long with ample memory, adding the OWC Thunderbay 4 for external storage of big files and the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock for extra USB3 ports.
