          I'm under the impression it's just where the SoCs had a defect and hence weren't binned as 8 core GPUs.

  •  

    Got my eye on one of these just waiting for a better sale.
    wireless1 via ebay is also $1799 - could also grab discount ebay giftcards from shopback

    ($100 off $1899 price with code PPSS100)

      They're making about $40 on this, and supply is short. You'll have to wait a fair while before somebody wants to make it a loss leader.

        Good to know… prob for retail yes.. but who knows with ebays random x% off selected sellers at certain times, we might land a 15% or 20% code off a seller like wireless1.

    why do they make it only 24", minimum standard should be 27" these days, especially at the 4k resolution

      Bigger screen is in development. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/comment/10558879/redir

        guess they just want an excuse to charge more for a larger screen and not provide the option for these lower specs and a bigger screen.

    •  

      I am sure there will be something for you in the next few months.
      Had a look a these today, the screen looks a fair bit bigger than I expected.

    •  

      The larger size will come with a beefier chip. Seems like they’re preparing it for the larger/higher end MacBook Pros and larger iMacs.

      Given that the current 27” has a 5K display, wouldn’t be surprised if the replacement is 6K or something.

      To be fair it's replacing the 21.5-inch model. The 27 I suspect may be replaced with a slightly larger size too.

  •  

    Still waiting for my custom model ordered a month ago and not due till July. Airtags from HN probably will take even longer.

    External or integrated displays for Macs work best at 110 or 220dpi. This is actually a 23.5 inch screen, but the absolute optimal for this resolution at 220dpi would be 23.364 inches. It comes close. That's why a 4k Dell 27" won't look great.

    •  

      There was a previous deal where someone linked a large list of monitors and DPI at different sizes, mentioning what you did here. Would you happen to have that link?

    •  

      Looks fine on a 4K Dell 27" using scaled mode. It's sharper than a 2K monitor. Ideally you'd be buying a 5K monitor for pixel doubling. The problem is that they're hard to come by and expensive (afaik). With that in mind, 4K is a decent compromise.

    •  

      That's why a 4k Dell 27" won't look great.

      It's not just about the pixel density IMO, it's also the display technology (IPS/VA/TN), brightness, colour gamut, calibration…etc.

      A big part of it is also that the MacBook/iMac tends to have a reflective screen, as opposed to a matte coating, which makes text appear sharper and makes colours pop more.

    This thing will easily last a decade.

      Unless something starts needing more than 8GB of memory.

  •  

    wondering, if this is powerful enough for video editing works, premiere pro, photoshop

    •  

      From what i've read earlier this year, they made an M1 optimized version of Da Vinci Resolve. Not sure how it runs though.
      But it sounds like the option is there for video editing.

    These SSD capacities are a joke.

    I don't like the way it physically looks.

      I agree. This should have been the most beautiful desktop computer ever, but with those white bezels and the huge logo-less chin, it’s really rather ugly.

    I wish the m1 iMacs could be used as an external display for another laptop/device - that would've increased it's usefulness significantly and make it's footprint in our small apartment more acceptable.

    That being said all the talk about target market/etc, my wife who isn't into computers or anything along those lines really liked the iMac design. She was willing to put it in our bedroom or living room. It's very rare that a computer (or any gadget/electronic device) really gets her interested, and for that I applaud Apple.

    If it were me, and I'm still curious about the m1 even if it doesn't really suit any of my needs, I'd probably go Mac Mini so I can use whatever monitor I want, or wait for tonight's announcement and see what the new designed for m1 Macbook Pros look like.

  •  

    Imo, I have no idea why so many people buy imacs when the mini exists. You get better IO with the mini and the imac isn't more powerfull. I never understood why Apple never made a "mac mini pro" that was basically the 27" imac w/o the display.

    •  

      For the simple reason that the Mini doesn’t come with an integrated high quality 24” screen.

    •  

      One word portability

      •  

        I guess thats a decent argument. However, is it really that much more of a hassle to carry a mac mini + monitor compared to an imac. It's only 1.3 liters in volume and can fit into a backpack. If the place you're going to has monitors, all you need is just the mini.

        •  

          I don't think anyone in the market for an iMac cares about portability. They just want a nice looking device with a stunning screen that doesn't mess up the overall look of whatever room they put it in. When someone is in the market for a TV, you're not going to suggest they should get an iPad instead, because it's more portable? I can't stand working on a 13" or 15" screen for more than an hour or so. I don't need the most powerful machine to do my work, I just care about a big, retina screen that fits enough tabs/apps. Besides its flaws/annoyances (unable to upgrade, poor repairability), the iMac hits the sweet spot between price, performance and appearance (its also dead quiet). The Mac Mini is a nice solution for those who already have invested in big, professional 4K/5K screens but if you don't have a screen at home already and are in the market for something with a big screen, I wouldn't suggest a Mac Mini.

    •  

      Hassle free nice and easy everything you need comes inside the box plug and play.

      Mac mini have to buy monitor, mouse , keyboard separately.

    My son plays RUST on his iMac 2009 27" with a GTX 880m I installed for him.
