And your GPU will die within 3-4 years and turn it into a paper weight, LIKE ALL IMACS

Is it a good deal with the student discount, free Beats that can be sold for $200 and no taxes?

>pretty good deal

With a 7700k, Pro 580, 16 GB RAM and 1 TB SSD it costs the equivalent of $4700 where I live.
I can build a PC with these specs, a decent case and a high end 5k display for $2700-2800 with the difference that it won't thermal throttle and the GPU won't melt down after two years, and I can put a HDD (or two, or five) inside for storage. If I bought a 4k or 1440p display instead of 5k memes and spent the rest on better components, it will positively rape the iMac in every type of task while remaining >40% cheaper.

The dogshit basic configuration costs $3200 and the difference in price to building a PC with the same specs is about the same.
The only thing the iMac has going for it is the lack of a "case," but since you're using it as a desktop and aren't moving it around, then a box under the table shouldn't be too much of a concern, unless you're living on 3 square meters in a slum apartment together with twenty other people, in which case buying expensive consumer electronics shouldn't be your first priority to begin with.

This has to be bait, like all of the Apple "shill" threads lately.

yeah, its not that expensive, considering what you get..

the problem is, I'like to be able tu replace/upgrde single parts.

if something breaks in this shit, the only thing you can do is take it to the applestore with tons of cash in your pockets...

It's twice as expensive than buying the actual components and building them into a PC case. The panel, resolution aside, is absolutely terrible. Fuck off.
