Hi

I am in the market for a new computer.
I am going the apple route, but dont have any experience with them.

My use for this new machine is web browsing and photo editing (lightroom and a bit of PS)

thanks for any input.

Any 27 inch iMac seems like a good bet. Make sure you have at least a 2tb fusion drive or a full SSD and the m390.

To be honest though any Apple machine will do this work so choose with abandon just make sure you have some SSD storage for speed.

You might want to wait a little while as Apple is going to announce new iMacs by end of Oct, this month.

As mentioned I would hold off until the new iMac's are released. This will give you the opportunity to get the latest and greatest OR a cheaper price on a current model.

Any model will likely be fine. The more you upgrade it the better it will be (obviously) it comes down to what you are willing to spend. The only thing I would recommend is if you get a Fusion drive go with the 2 or 3 TB models because they have larger SSD portions than the 1 TB model (better value). I would also go for a 27" model for user upgradable RAM and better CPU / GPU options.
