Arrggghh... After using a 5K iMac, I keep wanting to refocus my 2010 iMac's screen

    Bought an returned a 2017 i7 iMac. Ordered an i5 iMac instead.

    In the meantime I'm back to my old machine, which is a non-Retina 2010 i7. Performance is fine for basic stuff (aside from the lack of SSD), but using it now reminds me of using a VGA screen which is out of pixel alignment.

    I will be using this 2010 iMac as a second monitor, but I'm not entirely sure how long I'll be able to last with a non-Retina 2nd monitor.

    As the owner of a 2010 27" iMac and 2015 iMac with Retina 5K Display myself, I definitely appreciate how far the display tech has come in those 5 years. :)

    Resolution, contrast ratio, color saturation, even reflectivity/glare all very noticeably improved.

    Haha I can imagine. Setting up my 2011 iMac for sale after getting used to the 5K display did not make me miss the non-retina screen. Such a huge difference!
