We'll probably see some benchmark results in a week or two. I'm not too concerned as Apple tends to match their hardware components pretty well for the expected uses.I did a quick check, and in September Dell released a 27" 5K display for $2500. On article suggested that Apple would have a hard time meeting that price for a new iMac -- suggesting a $3000 price for an entry 27" 5K iMac.
Yeah, the SSD only config makes sense for use with the Pegasus RAIDs ... but in our household I pass things down to my daughter and her kids. It makes sense to think about this iMac running standalone in a year or 2 -- in that case the 3TB Fusion drive makes more sense.Thanks for the links on the tape solution ... Interesting ...I have a dozen 2TB LaCie drives that I use for backup. The drives are great -- but the external power bricks suck.I try to avoid tape solutions...
Yeah, I hear ya' ...But the config I ordered has 32GB RAM, i7 and 4GB VRAM So It's a big step up from a mid 2011 iMac 27:27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display$3,749.00With the following configuration:• 4.0GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 4.4GHz• 32GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 4x8GB• 3TB Fusion Drive• AMD Radeon R9 M295X 4GB GDDR5• Apple Magic Mouse• Apple Wireless Keyboard (English) & User's Guide• Accessory KitRecycle fee$4.00AppleCare Protection Plan for iMac -...
I think you can get a mount that fits an iMac and allows 90-degree rotate -- there is some software (I forget what) that allows you to rotate the display image ...
Well. I didn't pull the handle on the Mac Pro last year, but I just ordered a maxed-out config of this -- except for drive size (I already have a couple Promise Pegasus 12TB Thunderbolt 1 RAIDS).The total cost with AppleCare, tax, 2-day shipping was ~$4,300 ... AIR, the Mac Pro I was considering was about double that -- and no 5K Display.
Leading edge video filmmakers (oxymoron) shoot in 5K and deliver in 4K for theaters (and lesser formats for Hollywood, DVD, TV).It's a carryover from using film -- where the director would shoot a much larger image (oversample) than the frame size he planned to deliver. Then, the editor had great flexibility on choosing what part of the sample he would include in the frame.It also allows a digital editor things that wouldn't be possible, otherwise. For example a dialog...
Should be able to do that -- I can do it with my mid 2011 iMac 27:System Preferences--->Network--->Thunderbolt Bridge
Thinking about it, this may be more appropriate:Candy Man Blues Lyrics"Candy Man Blues" was written by Davis, Rev.

Not the 5S (no NFC) -- until the Apple Watch availability.
As to this time next year -- I suspect that all Apple iPhones offered will be Apple Pay enabled (regardless of size).I posted earlier that there are 20 million iPhone 6/6+ pre orders in China. It is worth noting that major credit cards are accepted in major cities, malls, hotels, etc. in China -- likely, the places frequented by tourists, business travelers and affluent Chinese citizens.I wonder what the impact of enabling Apple Pay in China will be ...
