    I am really liking the latest update, I may be getting the 27" model. I have a 2011 MBP and it is starting to lag. In addition to the iMac a will most likely look at an ipad as my companion to the desktop.

    If you think you will have enough storage, then I would say yes. I have both Fusion Drive & SSD Macs, both are very quick, although the SSD has the slight edge when processing large files. Fusion Drives are still very worthy for the the money that you save and the storage you gain. It also depends on what you will be using your machine for.

    If you've got it in your budget, YES!! or 512GB if you can.

    Myself I'm tempted, but still very pleased with my maxed out 27" late 2013 iMac, so for now I won't, besides it'll take time for those new 5K iMacs to show up in the refurb store. :)

    Just returned a 2 week old iMac when I heard about this update. Got the base model. I run off an external thunderbolt ssd. Glad I saw this update before the return period ended.

    If you're getting the new 27" 5K iMac, that machine comes with 1867MHz DDR3 memory so you'd wanna stick with that variety. I'd buy the basic 8GB, and then upgrade yourself to 16, 24, 32, or if you want to go gung-ho 64GB* even, all of which are less expensive than the equivalent BTO option from Apple. The installation process is very straightforward and dead simple. Just don't forget the anti-static mat.

    *Apple's BTO for the new 27" 5K iMac doesn't offer a 64GB option, but third parties like OWC do.

    I would have been an instant buyer, but this new DCI-P3 Color Space is something I"m going to have to think about.
