Third Party Manufacturers / Re: A photographer dream? New iMac with 27", 14.7 megapixel (5K) retina display« on: October 17, 2014, 12:47:56 AM »
Single hard drive and max 8GB memory is not my dream. Nice display, but all in ones still feel to me like immobile laptops.
That's the minimum config. You can upgrade to 32Gb memory and a 1Tb SSD drive. Also has two thunderbolt ports and 4 USB 3 ports. You would typically add a thunderbolt RAID for your photo storage, leaving the internal for the OS and applications.
This would be similar to what you would do with a maxed out MacPro that contains 12 cores, 64Gb, a 1Tb internal drive, 6 thunderbolt ports and 4 USB 3 ports that can handle 3 4K displays or 6 thunderbolt displays.
Ah, I read "up to 8GB."
Regardless, one internal drive with a built in display kills it for me. YMMV
