How is 720p/1080p quality on iMac?
I'm looking at buying an iMac, but my deciding factor is Movies. I watch a lot of movies, so I need to know if the 720p/1080p up-scaled to 1440p looks any good in comparison to a 1080p monitor?
If it doesn't look that good then I'll most probably go for an Macbook Pro Retina with 1080P a monitor.

The MBPRs don't have 1080P displays. They will upscale as well. Only the 21.5" iMac has a 1080p monitor. The 27" iMac displaying 1080p in a window will have a window size of 20.25", making it bigger than any MBP.
27" i7 iMac, 15" MacBook Pro, Mac mini with Mavericks Server, 5 other Macs and an unused Apple TV.

Yes, I have used a 21.5 inch iMac with a 1920x1080 display and a 27 inch iMac with a 2560x1440 display, and both play 1080p video that looks very good.
I don't really know how to quantify that, but I have no complaints. As good as any TV.
You will notice, however, that the display tends to crush the blacks a bit, which is sort of annoying in dark scenes in movies. This can be fixed just by calibrating the display either in System Preferences, or by buying a proper color calibrator.
