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

1500$ will buy you a reasonably powerful PC that will be able to handle creative workloads, 3d modelling, photo/video editting and some gaming (light games like Kernlbal and Dota in 4k AAA in 1440p)

while an iMac is limited by its shitty laptop level cooling and cant do amythhing other than browsing facebook.

Lmao now fit a 5k screen in your budget.
No, a 4K won’t suffice. I want a 5k or greater screen in there for $1500. Now show me.

>any serious content creation

iMac has 78% AdobeRGB this is fucking abhorrently awful colors. pretty much THE WORST on the market, i dont even know where they ordered the panels so bad.

You will need to buy a decent monitor for your Mac to do anything or even watch a movie.
My 32" 4K VA panel has 91% Adobe rgb, anything considered profesdional has at least 98% (2% margin of error) or above 100.

a 27" ips with 98% also costs about 500%
the othet 1000$ buy you better hardware.

What you're doing with your machine can hardly be described as "computing" if you're primarily concerned with how the GUI looks and feels and how it's displayed

(YOU) brought up the SERIOUS content creation.

You cant be seriously creating anything when you literally dont see any colors that all other people see.

Your content will look like dogshit on any other display.

>These new 27in Retina models are also able to show more than 99 percent of the DCI-P3 colour space. DCI-P3 is the colour space for digital movie projection. It encompasses the entire sRGB colour space and in addition can display even more shades of red and green (the knock on effect of which is that colours like yellow, orange, and magenta also improved).

Light games in 4K, AAA titles in 1440p.

>thinking 1440p is any good for any serious content creation
I think he meant that you can play AAA games in 1440p on your 4K monitor, so you'd still have a 4K monitor that you could use at its full resolution for content creation.

You realize that running 3d modeling software can be done on like any movie. They are just making individual models, the actual production work is done on a bigger computer and the compilation is done on Linux server farms

In 1986, Jobs funded the spinout of The Graphics Group (later renamed Pixar) from Lucasfilm's computer graphics division for the price of $10 million, $5 million of which was given to the company as capital and $5 million of which was paid to Lucasfilm for technology rights.

Yes, the company owned by Steve jobs did use Macs. Pixar does everything else on Linux and has even released open source Linux software https://github.com/PixarAnimationStudios/USD
