Imac 5k screen real estate with logic X?

Recommended Posts

I need to upgrade my system and I am looking at the imac 27 5k or the late 2013 imac 27.

Does the 5k gives more screen real estate in logic X?


I would like to see a screenshot of both if possibe

I know the reviews of the 5K are superb. In Mac Pro Territory. If I had to choose, I'd go 5K and mess with screen resolution to fit my bifocal eyes.


Your Appeture/Lightroom begs for the 5K.


** Be careful! ** Do make sure you can add aftermarket RAM. Apple is soldering RAM and SSDs to motherboards these days.


My philosophy for buying (new) computers has always been, "spend until it hurts, the spend a little more."
