I bought an iMac
My tax guy said I should buy before the end of the year rather than after, turns out that was just the little push I needed to finally decide.

27”, maxed out CPU and GPU, but bottom tier RAM and storage, because Apple seem to have returned to grossly overpriced RAM offerings and I don’t believe in internal storage, anymore. Oh, and a trackpad and extended keyboard, because I already own a mouse and the tiny keyboard.

They say it’ll be here in a week. Here’s hoping it fits the tiny Ikea desk I put together a while back.

Reminder to self: buy RAM.

RE: I bought an iMac
I have a 2017 model, I am a fan. I like the extended keys and trackpad. I wish the lightning ports had a detent around them so they're easier to charge. I have to lift them up and flip them around to plug them in.

I didn't go all out on storage and memory because I find that the OS outpaces my own resource needs, so I won't need an upgrade for a few years, and by then I'll have better options should I need it.

Apparently they don't offer 4.2GHz i7s in iMacs anymore. Huh.

I don't see it in their line up, but I'm glad that you got one!

I got the slowest 27" with ssd, been loving it.
It's screaming fast for what I do, even parallels with windows 10 is like sitting in front of a windows box, no lag.
I'm sure you'll enjoy yours as much or more.

RE: I bought an iMac
Haven’t used it much, yet, but I do like the humongous screen. Takes a bit of getting used to; this is my first desktop Mac since I retired the Cube some thirteen years ago.

Ikea cut it a little close on that desk; if I stack too much stuff onto the to shelf, which I do, it grazes the top of the screen. Otherwise, I can’t help but think they kept the 27” iMac spec sheet on hand while designing it.
