Another year, another iMac, but this time we got a pretty big upgrade in CPU horsepower! Can the iMac tame the Core i9, or are we in for an epic burn?

Who's brilliant fucking idea was it to put the charging cable for a mouse on the bottom of the fucking mouse? What they _should_ do, is make a "Magic Mousepad" that charges the next-gen Magic Mouse through induction.

he also missed how much tax they charge you for a 2tb ssd, im also curious if you can swap that out yourself.... 4tb sammy is like $600-700 and if this machine takes NVME even better..
Juan Manuel Martinez
Not swappable, I would configure it with the base SSD instead of fusion drive and use thunderbolt 3 ssd's, not many people surely need huge gigabit+ transfer speeds for their workflows and it's much cheaper than paying the apple tax on SSD's (even though they're quite fast)

As a professionnal graphic designer I can tell you that this mouse design is the worst thing on earth, common, put the charging port on front so we can use it while it charge. Ho, and also, glossy screen is a nightmare for graphic designer, which happen to be the #1 apple buyers and WHERE ARE IS NUMBER PAD! Apple took a lot of bad design descision recently.

in this case im ok with apple limiting the tdp and tuning the boost. i rather have more stable clocks instead of throttling. lets face it. an imac is just a big tablet with out touch function. i just wish Apple would give us a maintenance hatch. to make it easier to clean.

While I'm sure the British voice talking about Ting may have been sounding very positive, my guess is that the guy has not been looking too far for UK service. I pay 10 GBP (about US$ 13-14) and get unlimited minutes and texts, and 4 GB. If I don't use all 4 GB, I get a refund towards following month's fee, at the rate if GBP 1.25 per GB (and they measure by the MB, so if I use 800 MB I get GBP 4 credit, so next month it costs me GBP 6)... $10/GB is costly, by comparison Seems we all have some cheap and some expensive items/ services where we live.

mjc0961 Hace 16 días
7:49 - The problem Apple faces though is that maybe I had no intention of spending $1,217.03 on a monitor. Apple has no answer for people who want reasonable value from computer hardware without also having to buy a stupidly overpriced display. The iMac is too expensive because they force a display on you, and the Mac Mini is bad value for the money since you get incredibly weak hardware for the asking price. I wouldn't buy either of these computers, which leaves Apple with no product I would buy. They really need to come up with a new product that gives you reasonable hardware for the money without forcing expensive extras like $1000+ displays.
heavestern Hace 16 días
This shit is not reasonable at all. You dont get a 4k monitor with rx580 and you cant definetly upgrade any parts at all. For whatever reason you are buying it , its only reasonable if you have more than enough money and say mehh why not buy an imac today...

iMac = consumer grade machine Mac mini, iMac Pro, ... = pro grade machines That's why the default iMac doesn't come with a super-expensive 10Gbit/s ethernet card/chip... (plus, no private user needs it and probably 99% never will...)
Eric Freiberg
Eric Freiberg Hace 17 días
Well, so maybe the arrogant and dumb pros which already got almost the entire Mac lineup (most Macs ARE pro grade... i mean, even the Mac mini now is and is both not intended for consumers and hardly affordable because it is *much* more expensive than all Mac minis before) stop thinking that they're in the middle of EVERYTHING. Originally, no iMac was ever intended as a pro machine, actually. Arrogant, dumb pros who think they are the most important people in the world began using it that way and - today - demand that the entire Mac lineup should only be for them, from Mac mini to iMac, from MacBook to MacBook Pro... 😑

I have a 2017 5k 27inch iMac, (4.2gz i7, 40g ram, 512gb SSD, 580 graphics), costed me around AUD 3300 to order on the Apple website. And now 2019 version, with the similar spec (they don't offer i7 now, I choose i5 on their web site), and guess what, it cost more than AUD 4500 now. Are you series on this apple? I rather sell the iMac and upgrade to a windows machine now.

"Reasonable"??? Yeah, if you put in a 1.200$ Display that costs nearly as much as the entire PC beside it! Why don't you throw in a 4.000$ professional screen and call the Mac a bargin? And who would buy such an overpriced display like the Asus P329Q and plug it into a 188$ RX580? Or who would buy a 500$ 9900K - currently the pest CPU for gaming - and put it in the same board with this GPU?That card can barely run the OS in 4K, let alone 5K! Building a PC with those parts would be a total mismach and a complete waste of money! Since those apple fanboys are so into their "professional use": The Ryzen 7 2700X outperforms or scores the same as the 9900K on every benchmark like cinebench or handbrake, but is about 40% cheaper. The 9900K in such a system is just a markleting scam. If you want a machine to edit videos or something like that, you would choose an entirely different plattform and get way more performance for your money. And why don't you compare the "real" costs: Better GPU for your old PC? No problem, that's about 400$ for a new GPU like the RTX 2060. Better GPU for your old Mac? No problem, that's about 3.000$ for a new Mac.
