    Currently have a 27" imac and a macbook air that I use now and again when I'm out and about

    Wondering if I should opt for the retina imac or the 15"rmbp then get a 4K monitor to run it off. I could also sell my MBA to save some dough too

    I need a computer with as much desktop space as possible as I run multiple windows side by side.

    I would save around £400 if I were to buy the rmbp and 4k display (spending £500ish on the display) and sell my mba\

    Or I could spend £900 on the 33" LG curved display and run it off the rMBP and not save anything

    I know its a hard question to answer but is the retina imac worth the extra £400 over the rmbp? Processor wise, screen wise and video card wise (id probably be looking at the base model on each)

    I have a few browser windows side by side that I use for work purposes, don't game at all but watch a lot of movies. Do some photoshop work but nothing too intense as I only edit product pictures and not photos.

    Cheers in advance

    I think u should do the rmbp and separate display. Wait til the rimac can be an external display before buying
