Excellent desktop machine

2013-01-30
By Photophile

This is an excellent desktop with a very high resolution screen and enough real estate to display two large windows side-by-side. It is very nice for tweaking photographs in Photoshop. The improved antireflection coating on the screen works well, although I think that proper location of the computer away from bright background sources behind you is more important. Aside from the expected improvements in CPU speed from earlier models, the fusion drive option is everything that I hoped it would be. The computer boots up in 10 seconds and frequently used applications start up very quickly. The machine runs virtually silently. I ordered the machine with the default 8 GB of memory and added an additional 8 GB of third party memory. This was very easy to do on the 27" model using the access door on the back. I transferred all my user information and third party programs from my 2007 model iMac using Migration Assistant with no problems.

I personally do not miss the optical disk drive. Even writable DVD's have become too small for storing large numbers of photographs, which was my main use of this kind of storage. I was worried that the SD card slot would be difficult to use because Apple located it on the backside of the machine, but it did not take too long to train myself to plug in a card without looking.

The only negative experience thus far has been the long wait between ordering the computer on 30 Nov 12 and finally receiving it 17 Jan 13. However, I understand that Apple is catching up to its backlog. I am extremely satisfied with this computer -- easily the best that I have ever used.
