    After 32+ years of wanting one, I finally got a Macbook Pro (I just wanted a Mac ever since the first one came out in 1984). Now I find myself looking at the iMac 5k systems. Noooo! I can't afford one, I don't need one, help me, I have Mac Acquisition Fever! Curse you Steve Jobs!

    Now which model should I get?

    You've already talked yourself out of one when you stated the following:
    "I can't afford one, I don't need one"

    In my opinion, enjoy your current MacBook Pro and let the "Mac Acquisition Fever" pass....

    I have been using Macs in my business since 2009 and I just recently picked up a used 2015 5k iMac 27" model with 32 gigs of ram and a 4 gig video card and I am liking it.

    I replaced my older 2012 27" unit and the first thing I noticed was how bright and crisp the screen was. I use my units for desktop publishing business and my photography and the newer 5K units are worth the upgrade.

    I have always believed life is to short and if you want something and have the financial resources to get it, buy it and enjoy it. Just my two cents worth.

    I think the reply nailed it:

    The 5K iMac is awesome, but taking on unnecessary debt is not.

    I have owned about every type of Mac out there. They each have their appeal. If I could only have one, it would have to be a MacBook Pro.

    I am slowly saving up to get one, so at this rate I should have enough money next year sometime. I hope that they update it and add a couple of USB-C ports, but keeping some legacy USB-A ports.

    A buddy is offering to sell me his Mac Pro (2.66ghz quad core, 48 gb ram, 1 TB SSD, 30" Apple monitor) for $900, I think I will take that over the iMac for now.
