I'd like to get your thinking about which imac is right for me. I plan to replace my 2009 macbook pro with a 27" imac. As far as my computer use (surfing the net, email, word, excel, light photo editing), the retina imac is way more than I need. I am a bit of a videophile - and I was wondering whether this imac would make a good second TV when I'm not using it as my computer. (My television is a Pioneer Elite plasma - and I want something that won't pale in comparison) If I play 1080P shows on hulu and blurays through a bluray drive, would it look better or worse than a regular 27" imac? I remember when flat screens came out, SD shows looked terrible on them because they weren't meant for that many pixels. Will the same be true of the retina imac? Would less pixels look better with 1080p content - or will this imac elevate the picture? I tried going to the apple store to check this out. While there, the retina imac did indeed look worse with streamed 1080p content than the regular imac. But it occurred to me that this could be because of the vast quantity of machines streaming. Do any of you have any thoughts on this? Thank you in advance for any help.
