    Hi guys
    Getting a new 27" iMac soon
    Wondered about the best viewing distance,
    I use reading glasses and when I was last at the Apple store looking at the 27"
    Starting to think I may need another set of glasses just for the computer?
    When I was at the store, I think I was getting too close to the screen
    Regards,
    Gary

    There's no one answer to that question. It differs for everyone. I put mine as far back as my desk will let me, which is only a couple of feet.

    There's always the option of increasing text size or scaling the resolution down to help see a bit better.

    Thank you,

    I should have mentioned that the main use of the iMac will be for extensive image editing, sorry!

    I have a set of reading glasses specifically focused to 32 inches, for computer use only. It makes staring at the screen for a long period easier on the eyes, at the expense of having to change glasses to actually read printed docs, etc.
