I'll start by saying I pulled the trigger on a fully spec'd 27" 5k iMac last night after the event. Begrudgingly would be an understatement. Backstory: I use my computer primarily for audio production, so screen real estate and raw power are generally more of a priority than portability. My mid-2011 iMac croaked in May - the dreaded GPU issue (pink bands, etc.). There was a replacement program for this, but my machine was way past that deadline. I felt reasonably confident there'd be a minor spec bump at WWDC, but alas. I felt more than reasonably confident there'd be a spec bump at the iPhone event, but alas. Up until last week, I felt dead certain we'd get a redesign or at the very least, a spec bump and upgraded ports yesterday. BUT ALAS. Last month I began to ponder an alternate solution - a new MBP and 5k Cinema Display, being reasonably confident the display would be unveiled. Obviously the LG display is an option, but it's not shipping until December. And it's ugly and expensive. And the biggest laptop innovation (touch bar) is not terribly practical or useful to me - more than likely I'd be docking the laptop/keeping it closed. Plus, all USB C ports means additional investment for all my peripherals. Ultimately the year-old 5k iMac felt like a better value and the better of two pretty lousy choices. I'm very bummed be buying so far off cycle. I usually time this perfectly! And what I was REALLY hoping for was Thunderbolt 3/Target Display, so that when it comes time for the next upgrade, I could at least continue to use that 5K display. And I'm just bitter about having waited nearly 6 months for nothing, all while being unable to create music and do something I love to do. Waiting another 6 months is simply unpalatable. Lesson learned. On the bright side: -It doesn't look like Kaby Lake is going to bring drastic improvements. And GPUs are of limited import to me. -The 5K is still a great machine and of all the "Don't Buys", is probably closest to the "Caution" stage. -Aside from target display, Thunderbolt3 would not provide a huge practical benefit otherwise...and when the time comes, 5k displays should be much cheaper. All told, I'm excited to get a new machine and get back to business, but this is the first time I've ever truly resented throwing money at Apple. I'm sure others are in the same boat. Let's commiserate!
