I need to buy a new computer and have been looking into buying an iMac for a while. Last fall when no new iMacs were announced and the rumors said Spring 2017 I was fine with it because I knew I had to wait that long anyways until I the money available. However, Spring is now approaching and still no new iMacs on the horizon so I'm now thinking maybe I shouldn't wait any longer and buy what's available right now. Here's my general use for the computer: I work as a photographer so photoshop is probably the program I use most. Since I work mostly with film (film as in analogue photography, not movies) I often work on high-res scans which will easily be files anywhere from 500mb to 1gb+. Other than that I don't think my other uses are very demanding as far as system resources go but I do need a high end display with a wide color gamut and fairly accurate colors when calibrated. I don't necessarily need a laptop but I do work both at home and at my studio so it's definitely a plus to have a computer at both places. Here are the two options I'm considering: 1) current 27" iMac (the top of the line one with the 2TB Fusion Drive, Radeon M395 with 2 GB, maybe with the 4GHz i7 processor upgrade. And upgrade to 16gb RAM from OWC). And maybe a cheap low-end 13" MBP for the studio and when I need something portable. (although I'd probably buy this at a later point) 2) current 15" MBP (the cheaper version of the new ones in it's basic configuration: 2.6GHz i7, 256GB SSD, 16GB RAM, Radeon 450 with 2GB) + the new LG 5K display. I would use a large external HD with either set-ups so HD storage is not necessarily a concern although 256GB on the MBP seems like very little (and I don't want to get the expensive upgrade). Both options seem to add up to roughly the same price which is far from cheap. I'd like to get a good set-up that will cover me for years to come and am willing to pay a bit more for it but I'd also be glad if I didn't have to completely empty out my bank account.
