Rest assured, I'm not looking for future predictions of iMac releases. I'm looking for purchasing advise when considering my uses (below). Thanks in advance. I'm considering purchasing a 2017 iMac - currently I own a 2016 MBP but the screen size is limiting for my work flow and I could do with a tad more power which the iMac might provide (?) The configuration I am considering is 27" Retina 5K Mid-2017 Intel Quad-Core i5 3.4 GHz with 1TB SSD. My uses are word processing, photography, photo editing and software development - no video editing, though it would be interesting to know how it might cope.
