Aye, and you can even hide the Menu bar as well these days.

I use my 13" work unit with an iMac 27" and a Dell 27" 4K monitor as external monitors when I'm in my office. The monitor is my own while the iMac is work provided, so I'm spoiled. (I work from home)
Word of warning, the 5k 27" iMac can't be used as an external monitor. I have one of those also work provided that I use as a research machine as the 13" is my primary machine with all the data in and out if office.

however my 15" MBP also connects to the 4K monitor so at the push of a button I can go writing. I love screen real estate. In my last book I had google earth and local pictures and even a video up on the screen as I wrote low flying scenes to make action as real as possible.
You can never have to much screen.
I also have a Full size Bluetooth keyboard that also jumps between the computers at a push of the button, saves having multiple keyboards and cable cluttering the desk.
Back to the topic, I do lust after the new 15", but struggle to justify while my old one works perfectly.

My iMac 27" is 5 years old and it's stubbornly refusing to be anything other than a) completely reliable and b) more than powerful enough for what I do. How fair is that, I ask you?

I'm leaning towards Briar's suggestion - I deserve one, so why not upgrade to the latest? I can get good $$ for my old one on eBay, or pass it on down to one of the kids.
