Now don't get me wrong .... I love the iMac, and would not be considering a change if not for an Act of God crippling my mid-2011 27" i7 CPU iMac. Most of what I do ..... tons of photo editing ..... mild video editing (4k) ..... and generic office type apps. I am NOT a gamer .... at least not in the sense most people think. I can walk in and pick up the Mac Pro for $1,000 out of pocket as the Insurance company allowed me a little over $2,00 for the Mid-2011 iMac.
