If you really need one then get one, but buy Apple refurbished at a discount if you can. There's nothing that feels outdated about mine, except maybe the design, but that's no big deal. The 5K display in the iMac continues to be one of if not the best display in an all-in-one.I've heard before from friends that Apple no longer cares for its desktop computers. So I was wondering if it was a good investment to buy the iMac?
I really need one tbh. It would be great to get the 27" 5K!
For the second time, you are missing the Late 2014 introduced October 16, 2014. I should know, having ordered one the very day it was announced because of the 5K display.And late last year I purchased my new i7 iMac and am delighted with it. Apple have released on schedule the last few models:-
Late 2017 on schedule.
Any chance these knowledgable friends are PC users?
I think the 5k introduction was a major release. It was a game changer in a number of ways. Apple used a media event to show off the iMac, they'll not do that for a minor update.For the 3rd time it was not a major release, just introduced the 5k display and a coupleof other sweeteners and upped the i7 to 4GHz.
The 5K display was major, at least I and many others thought so at the time. Apple had even mentioned it in the October 16, 2014 event complete with an introduction video highlighting the 5K display, which is not the typical coverage for a minor refresh.For the 3rd time it was not a major release, just introduced the 5k display and a coupleof other sweeteners and upped the i7 to 4GHz.
