Hello, I've been fantasising with the idea of getting an iMac for the last couple of years or so and, now that I have the money, I've realised it may actually not make much sense and that I might be better off getting a high-end 27'' display for less than half the cost. I happen to have a maxed-out 13'' 2017 MBP (except storage-wise: it's got a 512GB SSD), which is quite a powerful machine, at least CPU-wise. It's obviously not quite there in terms of GPU (no dedicated one) and DRAM (16GB is the maximum in the case of the MacBook), but it can definitely handle anything that I will ever through at it with relative ease. It also gives me portability (which is nice, even if I require it for just 5% of the time) and, assuming I invest on a good monitor, it can also match the screen real estate and quality of a 27'' iMac. If I have to ask, it means I probably don't need the iMac that said, I would be curious to know whether other people have a case for having both a high-end MBP and an iMac and, if so, what are the use-cases. I would argue that, if the MacBook Pro gives you the performance that you want, and you can afford the MBP+Display combination, the iMac is less attractive as an option. I would definitely like to hear other opinions though.
