I haven't read much about the iMac following the stream of reviews last year most of which mentioned how amazing it was but I remember these key shortcomings: Glitches sometimes when a lot is going on with monitor making some strange looking lines across the screen Worse gaming performance than last model Pricey for what it delivers. Wait for revision in 2015 Well, we're in 2015 and I'd like to know if those reviews were blown up a bit or if you all in the real world after 3 months with the machine agree with those initial reviews? My usage is pretty standard Daily usage of : Lightroom (RAW images) Handbrake Final Cut Pro (4K and 1080P editing) Office documents (5-10 megabyte XLS files) I play Sim City, Civilization, Sims 4 (coming out next week) and Warcraft once a week I have a 27" Core i7 from Late 2012 and I'd like to upgrade but I would need to see performance gains in all of these aspects on top of experiencing the really beautiful Retina Screen. Assuming I get the faster iMac + better video card, how has the experience been? Thanks!
