David, Bangor Design or photo editing

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Easy to setup right out of the box. Fast and after getting used to the GUI it has been a pleasure to use daily. Clarity of the screen a great benefit as I am a keen photographer and do a lot if editing and enhancing of my photos.
Bad points:
No real downsides aside from some peripherals require an extra purchase (CD/DVD drive) though as most software is downloadable its not an issue. External drive I used with PC still proved useful once it was accessed with some software and formatted correctly .

Manufacturer's Description

The stunning all-in-one iMac features a beautiful 27-inch widescreen display, fourth generation quad-core Intel Core processors and Nvidia graphics make it the most powerful iMac yet. And it comes as standard with 8GB memory, a 1TB hard drive and advanced, high-speed connections, including two Thunderbolt ports, four USB 3 ports and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. All in an impossibly thin enclosure that’s only 5mm at the edge.

Fourth-generation quad-core processors
