  • Apple iMac 27" late 2015 model, 4 Ghz quad core Intel i7, 3Tb fusion drive, 32 Gb RAM, retina 5K display

    Time was you had to buy something like a Mac Pro to get the best Mac, but for some time now, the iMac is all you need, and a relative bargain too.

    Mine is the top of the line fully loaded late 2015 version, with the AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4096 Mb Graphics card.

    This is a custom build iMac. It includes the retina 5K display (5120 x 2880). I use it connected to a second display via Thunderbolt cable, an Apple Thunderbolt 27" display (2560 x 1440)

    However, any iMac is good - and I consider these to be the best desktop computers you may get. Mac OSX is user friendly, and hence intuitively powerful. Great for word processing, website creation, photograph and video editing.

    Programs I use on my iMac include Adobe Creative Suite CS6, Microsoft Office 2016 for MAC, Quicken 2016 for MAC and Quickbooks 2016 for MAC. I also like a program called GraphicConverter.

    I use a MagicMouse 2 with it, and the wireless keyboard.

    The fusion drive on it, a 3Tb one, includes 250Gb of SSD where your most used programs are automatically stored, and a regular spinning HD for the balance of the 3Tb.

    In general:
    The iMac "Core i7" 4.0 27-Inch Aluminum (Retina 5K, Late 2015/Skylake) features a 14-nm "Skylake"
    Quad Core
    4.0 GHz Intel "Core i7" processor (6700K) with
    independent processor "cores" on a single chip, an 8 MB shared level 3 cache, 8 GB of 1867 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM (PC3-14900) installed in pairs (two 4 GB modules), a 1 TB, 2 TB or 3Tb "Fusion Drive," and an AMD Radeon R9 M390 or AMD Radeon R9 M395 graphics processor with 2 GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory. It also has a built-in "FaceTime HD" webcam and stereo speakers.

    This model has a 27"
    LED-backlit 16:9 widescreen IPS DCI-P3 "Retina 5K" display. The rear of the case is aluminum and is thicker in the middle and tapers to a razor thin 5 mm at the edges.

    Connectivity includes four USB 3.0 ports, dual Thunderbolt 2 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n compatible), and Bluetooth 4.0.
