5K 27inch
1TB Fusion Drive
RAM:8GB
GPU:AMD m390
CPU:i7 Processor (4.2 turbo clock)


What you guys think? Will it be enough for WoW, Diablo 3 (high/ultra settings with lower resolution 60 fps) and programming

I asked Apple representative if AMD M390 is better than AMD M290 and she said yes, but they don't have the specs for it. Seems strange, but hey. Will i regret it for not buying m295x ? Can someone give me basic advice on e-gpu setup

Your question is asked almost daily, I'd recommend looking through previous threads.

1TB fusion drive only has 24GB SSD, not worth - 2TB should be minimum (3TB or 512 GB SSD are the optimal HD configurations imo)

M395 will not let you play WoW on ultra. You'll have to settle for high on 1080p res.

M395X seems like the much stronger v-card for gaming.

While your order is still processing, you should cancel and do some research first.

I'd be really disappointed with myself if I spent that much money on a sub performing computer.

Really? I presume you understood that I want to play games on 5k res, which I don't. I guess lesser resolution will keep my fps 60

No, I have no idea what you want to do except that you purchased a computer and then asked questions. So I suggested you cancel your order while you can and then get the answers you need.
