Positives


One of the best displays available right now, great design and build quality, fast processor.

Negatives


Pricy, needs more RAM as standard.


Bottom Line

Starting at around $2499 / £1,999, iMac with Retina 5K Display is easily the most expensive iMac that Apple ever released. However, when you consider the prices of 4K monitors today, and the fact that this iMac includes the first 5K display on the market in a very slim form factor, the price is actually quite fair.

Regular users might not have too much benefit from a 5K display (other than the fact that you can consume ultra HD content and enjoy the gorgeous display). However, if you are interested in photo editing, video editing, and multitasking, than this computer is one of the best choices out there. Gamers should probably avoid this all-in-one computer as its graphic card is simply not good enough for serious gaming, especially in the native resolution of the display.
