    I've just purchased an iMac 27 Retina 5K mid-2015 via eBay.

    Touchwood it'll be here November 1.

    Granted it's not the model released last October but for those of you who have the mid-2015 variant are you happy with it?

    Thanks!

    Mid 2015 is equivalent to the late 2014 in hardware. As long as you got at least a Fusion drive it should be fine though.

    Yes it comes with a Fusion Drive, one of the reasons I went for it.

    Have had a Mac Mini since January 2015 and whilst it's been great I wanted something with a little more 'grunt' if that makes sense.

    @iGeek2014 curious if the Fusion Drive is a 1TB or 2TB?
    The 2TB offers a larger SSD; hence my question...

    Is that true even in the mid '15s though? I thought those were maybe still at the full 128. Please someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    You'll be fine then. As long as it has an SSD or fusion with 128 SSD you'll be fine.

    The mid 2015s didn't come with the junky m380 option. lowest they had was the m290 which is fine. So you will be fine.

    Yes the Fusion Drive is 1TB of HDD and 128 of SSD.

    Would have preferred SSD altogether but found they were out of my price range.

    One thing I won't miss about my Mac Mini is it's lack of dGPU.

    The Intel Iris Pro is fine for light usage sure but when it takes up 1.5GB of RAM it makes a difference for more intensive tasks.

    The seller was waiting for packaging as it didn't ship with the original box from Apple.

    Not disappointed with the Fusion Drive... made me realise how slow the one in my Mac Mini is!

    The display is lush... can't believe how crystal clear it is.

    Also impressed with the Stereo speakers too. Even on full my Mac Mini sounded too quiet.
