Excellent news Mr X, excellent news.
Just getting there Jaysen. The 5K iMac I'm getting has 24GB of RAM and most importantly 2GB VRAM. Unfortunately, I can't afford a new 16" MBP, and 2GB VRAM is the minimum for a new app I need to run.
But the other problem is that most of our external storage drives are FireWire drives. The 17" has a FireWire 800 port as well as a Thunderbolt port, for which I have a USB 3 adapter, plus three other USB 2 ports. The 27" doesn't have a FireWire port. Apart from that, the 17" also has a terrific screen.
At least I won't have to lug it around to the extent that I used to.
