A new Mac has arrived!

After a few months of procrastination I finally ordered a new 27" 5K Retina iMac from the Apple Store. I maxed out the processor, the video card and the Fusion Drive, while minimising the Apple memory making up for it with some more cost effective OWC after market memory sticks.

Exciting times upon delivery & unboxing - 2016

The purpose of the purchase was to manage and 'process' my ever growing digital libraries of music and photos. The additional performance will help the likes of Lightroom edit and render the rather large RAW image files that the Canon 5D Mk111 produces.

The machine is just gorgeous in style and the 5K screen is brilliant in it's brightness and contrast for DVDs and photos. As I don't have any 5K video (who does?) I can't speak to the ultimate end of it's performance envelope.

The wireless keyword and mouse have fantastic battery life (i am yet to re-charge) and both are very usable and responsive.

Overall, I am delighted so far.

Bye for now, BomberBoy
