    Hi to all, having read about peoples R iMac problems in various threads I thought it might be a good idea to get poll on good and bad experience's with R iMac machine's.

    Please list your config like below. my config

    Delivery date 28th November 2014

    RiMac
    4.0ghz i7
    R295
    SSD
    32G ram

    After your config you can list the issue's your having. the idea is to see if there is something common in a certain config that gives issue's.

    Myself its been a faultless experience so far, smooth running, quiet and no issues.

    The poll is easy to follow 4 parts and the most common configs.if your config isn't here vote to closest config to yours.

    1) Standard config i5 cpu R290 GFX standard, fusion, SSD drive GOOD
    2) Standard config i5 cpu R290 GFX standard, fusion, SSD drive BAD
    3) Upgraded config i7 cpu R295 GFX standard, fusion, SSD drive GOOD
    4) Upgraded config i7 cpu R295 GFX standard, fusion, SSD drive BAD

    lets try and keep the thread as clean as possible to let others view to see if they can see any common faults, or determine they are random on some R iMac's only

    When you spend that kind of money on a computer it'd better be a good experience. Mine is certainly living up to my high resolution expectations :cool:

    By the way this is someone who didn't get the iPad Air 2 because they didn't up the resolution :p waiting for the iPad Pro.

    RiMac
    4.0ghz i7
    R295
    1 TB SSD
    32G ram

    Zero problems with this machine.
    No backlight bleed that I can see.
    Only ever hear the fans when doing Handbrake encoding, otherwise dead silent.
    Seems really solid. Operation is very smooth.

    Very pleased, would highly recommend.

    i7 4.0 ghz
    32 GO
    R9 m295x
    FD 3TB

    Very very impressed. Never had a Mac that smooth on Mac OS X.
    And playing games in Windows 8.1 as never been that fast.

    Bad points > fan can be noisy for some, hot machine after gaming, like every iMac I've ever used (the last one was a maxed out 2012). Nothing surprising and nothing that really bothers me.

    PS : It is true that the RiMac - even at ease - make a very soft fan sound that I didn't hear with the 2012 one. But at full speed, it's the same swoosh, no doubt.

    RiMac(base)
    i5
    290GPU
    1TB Fusion
    24G ram(aftermarket)

    Excellent experience so far and didn't even hear the fans coming on playing Doom 3 in 5k on Ultra Settings(I know its 10 years old but still fun in 5K).

    Only issues have been some screen lag previewing large images.

    Hope you didn't order that ram from Apple. #

    Unless you get out a magnifying glass, you wouldn't be able to discern a higher resolution, so why wait?

    Unhappy that my delivery date is still two weeks off. :(

    i7, 295, 16GB (aftermarket). Replaces my 2009 that I also had to wait an eternity for.

    i7 4.0, 32GB, 295. Perfect. Yosemite and other software issues: tiling in Lightroom and plugins, occasional scrambled windows or menu bars on second monitor.

    Apple's pricing is daft. It came with 8GB, and I bought my own 4x8GB sticks to max it out to 32GB.
