Do you have a limit in your head
If apple comes out with one
I'd love it if it were just the same price increase over the non-retina version that we see now with the MBP.
But, most likely it will cost more than that differential.
I would pay them about 500$ less than the top end one as the performance would be less. I do not agree at all having the machine work 30-40% if not 50% of its power just to drive the display at a retina scale.
I want a 27" but non-retina, thank you. With all the other upgrades that I want, I will still be over $3,000.
Enough to justify a Pro, which I'd prefer anyway if they update it.
I don't see the big advantage of a retina iMac. For as far away as I would be from the screen the impact would be minimal compared to an iPhone or iPad that I hold much closer. So not too interested in paying a premium for one.
You must be kidding, aren't you ? 3.500 is more than enough ...
Retina isn't a premium price feature for me. I'll take it gladly when it's the norm.
0 in the sense that I wouldn't get it unless it came for free. I don't think I'd have much use for retina on a computer, I tried a rMBP in a shop and it didn't strike me as mcuh different as the normal MBP. A little crispier, yes, but nothing that dramatic. Considering that an iMac is kept even farther away, I doubt it would be that important.
The same price as a normal iMac with an SSD option, just like the MacBook Pro line. I don't think they'll make one until that's possible, or they decide to take a profit hit because of it.
You're right I should bump that to $8000.
Not a cent. Not interested.
Nothing - I want a real CPU and GPU and a good monitor - not a fake GPU and a pretty screen
Some of your figures are beyond outrageous!
£2500 - No idea what that is in $
Thats what I have saved, Ready to go!
Probably somewhere between $3500 and 4K. $3500 is my tech budget (including accessories). Going any higher would require that I do it covertly, or convince my spouse.
ex-VAT or inc-VAT?
So far so good .. One is willing to pay $8000 for Retina 27" iMac. Not sure if it was a joke.
Mythical 27" Retina Display .. $1500 (?)
MacPro hexcore with dual GPU .. $3500
Total .. $5000 .. And you get a expandable and powerful Mac instead.
So yeah.. That should be a joke.
Including VAT. Current model I could have bumped up to i7 and most of the extras for that. Also, I get discount on Apple products which helps.
£2500 is plenty I hope to get the Top of the range iMac (fingers crossed) 2012.
If its more than its a rip off!!
Absolutely. That puts it around US$3400 before local taxes. It better come stuffed to the gills for that. Retina, SSD, RAM.
Way to go ! Smart move ...
