    I have 2x27" Thunderbolt Displays currently being used by a Mac Mini (which I will be retiring this month). I'm going to grab the 27" 5k iMac and I'm just looking for people's experiences using the 27" 5k screen - right beside the Thunderbolt displays.

    I'm wondering if over time - you have determined certain apps you will only use on the 5K due to finer detail etc, and other apps are suited just fine on the lower resolution monitor.

    Thanks for your input.

    Interesting. I have the two Thunderbolt displays with my 2015 iMac for a year. No issues with using 3 monitors - but my iMac will crash if I try to sleep it because of a usb powered external HDD I have attached. Haven't been able to sleep my computer in almost a year.
