    I am purchasing the same desk in this video and looking to get a imac as well but need to know the screen size of the imac in the video. would anyone be able to let me know how big the screen is ? its important as the desk needs to have a similar size screen on it for me to reach all components.. Much Appreciated!

    It is a 27" iMac.

    Even if it were 21.5" I would suggest you go with the 27" model. You can upgrade the memory after purchase, better graphics which will be important if you are into music and videos etc. If money is not a proble, suggest going for the 1TB PCI-E Flash Storage. It is lightning fast.

    It's not an iMac, its a 27" Cinema Display hooked up to a Mac Pro under the desk, which you can see at 0:58 in the video.

    Yeah, that's no iMac.

    But it looks more like a 24" model to me.

    i was leaning towards the 24" as well.... i think its obviously an older model. Now i am pretty sure this model is the 27" for sure... it will work in my setup but will partially block my controllers. How significant is the performance between a pretty maxed out 27" to 21.5" imac? can i still produce music, edit videos, etc at a high level with both ?

    I agree. Looks like a 24" cinema monitor to me.

    If you compare the monitor to his music keyboard which is a Masterkey 61, and is 38" long, I still say that's a 27" Cinema Display.

    The 27" has a markedly faster processor, and double the RAM. Also, you wouldn't want to do high level stuff of that kind on a 21" these days.

    It is for sure a 27" Cinema Display. The 24" had the silver aluminium visible around the edges, as can be seen on this picture

    The one in the video does not seem to have that (plus it look like a 27" screen)

    It's an iMac.

    Note the silver bezel along the base, and the Apple icon is black, not silver as in Cinema displays.

    The second clip is, the first clip isn't. The OP is all over the place.

    Definitely NOT an iMac.
    All iMacs have a silver "chin", a wider bezel at the bottom - black Apple on aluminum.
    The Apple displays have that even, black bezel, with the silver Apple.

    (edit: missed the second clip :rolleyes: which is surely an iMac.)
    Anyway, to reinforce the idea: If you get a new iMac, with that kind of use, should be a 27-inch.

    The confusion is coming from two different clips posted by the OP o_O

    One is the Cinema Display and the other an iMac.
