Hello. I'm new. Be gentle.

So I took delivery on my iMac yesterday. Scored a mint condition 2015 27" retina version on Amazon for $1295. 1Tb Fusion drive with 8GB RAM. I was flip-flopping between this and a non-retina version for $800 on Craigslist but I'm glad I went this route.

The screen is absolutely gorgeous! I'm coming from a 13" MacBook Air as my primary computer so this is a big step up! Having the retina screen is definitely a must-have and I'm thinking there really isn't any going back to non-retina at this point. I won't be doing anything crazy on it like gaming or video editing. The heaviest lifting it will do is Photoshop for my photography. And I gotta say, my images never looked better! Gets me excited about the hobby all over again.

Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself.

I also have the 2015 27" iMac, it's a beast! I hope you're satisfied with the fusion drive. And the RAM is super easy to upgrade yourself.
