  Too right. :) Give it up, Wizard.  The retina iMac is the best desktop ever.  5k display.  R290 GPU.  SSD.  4 gig i7 CPU.  I've only 'played' with the baseline' retina iMac and it is a wonder to behold.  As we move to Skylake and a possible R300 series GPU (?)  and faster connections and memory(?) the iMac will only become a more impressive machine than it is already. The iMac is becoming quite the beast.  It's already rough housing the entry level Mac Pro which costs...
As for the Macbook.  Played with one today.  Quite astonishing.  Like the innovative new keyboard.  And that trackpad.  So thin!  Beautiful screen.  SSD more than compensates for the M processor which is no slouch on most mainstream cpu tasks.   Be interesting to see what sales impact it has.   Should get a circa £100 price cut going forwards.  A revision 'B' and 'C' machine is going to killer compound its appeal.   Impressive.   Lemon Bon Bon.
...and here's hoping for a more powerful quad core and improved GPU mini.  Pricey for what it is.   Lemon Bon Bon.
Skylake!   *sniff, sniff.  I smell iMac revision...   5k retina trickles down the line somewhat.  Beefier gpu.  Faster cpu.  More or faster ram.  512 SSD as standard!?   I could go for that.   Lemon Bon Bon.
 Yes.  Nicely summed up.  Pretty much the way the wind is blowing going forwards. A 'laptop' variant iOS device may arrive with the iPad+, stylus included.  But less clunky than M$'s 'hybrid.' Stick a 'laptop' iOS device/iPad+ above the current iPad but beneath the entry Air.  Killer.  Powered by a promising A9 chip.  (The A8X is already pretty impressive.) As you said, iOS software is massive.  To me, iOS is eventually going to replace the Mac in the way the Mac replaced...
I think iOS has it's 'limitations.'  But for 9/10 mainstream things it doesn't.  It will get added to as things move forward.  Give an iPad an A9 processor and 13 inch screen with stylus (I don't wan to wear out my fingers drawing...) and we're in business.   The Macbook?  A natural evolution.  A fantastic work of art.  They have learned from the iPad and iPhone engineering.   I think iOS and 'X' converge ever closer but they remain true to the truck, casual, minute...
iMac 32 incher?   Sure.  Why not.   I remember reading an amazon review with someone saying you don't want to go lower than 32 inch for a 4k display and that is a 'native' size for the pixel density.   The 27 inch retina iMac seems razor sharp to me.  It's a real beauty!  I'll def' get a monitor that can rotate a 4k screen e.g. BenQ IPS display (or better) £699 sounds fine to me.  That can run alongside it and I can view art in portrait a3 size!   Lemon Bon Bon.
Pixelmator can be used for work.   Lots of it.   At a far cheaper price than PS.   Adobe can keep their rental leech ware.   Lemon Bon Bon.
Yes.  No shame in this Mac.  It's a decent computer for a reasonable price. Lemon Bon Bon.
I wonder if the iMac can drive a 2nd 4k display...   I'd like to be able to have a 'rotate' Dell style (I know, I'm going to hell...) monitor alongside it.  I want to be able to see A3 art at 'near' 200-300 dpi print.   Lemon Bon Bon.
