re: iMac 5K
Got a high school or college student who needs a computer? How about yourself on that pitifully small laptop screen and the neck-ache from hunching over your laptop?
Think of the Apple iMac 5K as an outstanding display with a free computer included. It was true and remains so! The iMac 5K is the best solution Apple ever produced.
Why spend nearly double the price at Apple for an inferior display (eg M1 24" model)?
Fantastic screen, more than enough CPU power, and user-upgradeable memory to 128GB. And an Apple 1 year warranty (select models, OWC warrants some of the higher-end ones). Nothing else comes close to the value proposition.
Multiple persons can use it — create one login account for each.
These iMac 5K models have only 250GB or 500GB SSDs. But for most all users that is ample space, and adding more fast SSD storage can be done with fast but inexpensive drives like the OWC Envoy Pro Elektron. Really need to keep thecost down? Go with the 4K model shown below.
Note: keyboard and mouse are NOT included. Upgrading the CPU is done by OWC and does not enhance video card options.
