B&H has a number of deals on Macs this week as part of its Photoshop World sale going on. Check out the list below.
27″ iMac w/ Retina 5K for $2099 (reg. $2299)
3.5GHz 6-core Mac Pro w/ 16GB RAM and 256GB flash drive for $3699 (reg. $3999)
2.7GHZ 12-core Mac Pro w/ 64GB RAM and 1TB flash drive for $8699 (reg. $9599)
15.4″ MacBook Pro Retina for $2699 (reg. $3299)
13.3″ MacBook Pro Retina for $1499 (reg. $1999)
13.3″ MacBook Air for $1249 (reg. $1849)
B&H now has multiple configurations of the new 27″ iMac with Retina 5K display available for pre-order. While the base model is only $2494, I think the one to get is probably the 4GHz Core i7 with 4GB VRAM and only 8GB RAM for $2999. Then pick up some aftermarket OWC or Crucial RAM for a fraction of what Apple charges. Check out all of the configurations here at B&H Photo.
Alongside new iPads today, Apple announced an impressive new iMac with a 27″ 5K resolution display for a base price of $2499.
The new Retina display iMac has been rumored for quite some time now. It offers the 4x the resolution of the previous 2560 x 1440 resolution panels on the 27″ iMac models. The new display weighs in with an incredible 5120 x 2880 resolution – that’s 14.7 million pixels! [Read more…]
I picked up a new 27″ iMac a couple weeks ago when B&H dropped the price of the previous generation iMac by $300. Specifically, I bought the 3.2GHz Core i5 unit with a nVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 1GB GPU. I paired the iMac with a HP ZR2740w 27″ IPS display.
After using it for a couple weeks, I thought I would take a few minutes to share my thoughts on my new setup. I figured this would be an appropriate time since we have an active “Mac or PC” thread going on over on our Facebook page now.
I am generally not an early adopter. In fact, I often purchase a product near the end of its market life cycle (there are exceptions though – e.g., the 5D Mark II). This has worked well for me with Mac desktops and laptops over the years for a couple of reasons. [Read more…]
