Can the “iMac is overpriced” meme end? The iMac offers great value for money.

Expensive? Yes.
Luxury? Yes
Overpriced? No.

Unlike a self built PC, Macs hold their value.

You can resell it and buy a better one instead of upgrading. Similar expense

What the fuck are you on that you think you need to drop 1.5K to upgrade a PC to 4K?

Unlike most other Apple products, the 5K iMac is a good deal - for now. You better hurry up and buy it while it's still a good deal because when the rest of the market catches up Apple will not lower the price. Take a look at the Mac Pro to see what I mean.

good 4k is 2-3k atm
you can imagine how good that 5k really is

Isn't the imac's screen 6-bit + fcr though?

If you build a PC from scratch with a decent 4k, it will cost 1.5k+

I don't know why I still come here. It just makes me fucking depressed. I guess I'm holding out for the occasional fun banter that still shows up.

Do the research, decide which fucking computer you want, buy it, hopefully enjoy it instead of just shitposting about it, and try to live a good life. Come back if you have a question about the computer or something/funny to say about it.
