    I came into computing through iOS, WatchOS, and TVOS. Mac was the last platform I was introduced to, so I am more of an iOS kind of guy. I do photo editing on my iPad Pro, but I hear that the iMac is good for that as well. I have a Mac Mini right now for anything my iPad can't do, but the iMac has always looked beautiful and I'm thinking of getting an iMac. Are the new ones worth it? Am I better off sticking with iPad?

    I am typing this from an iMac 27"; bought in June 2016. I don't do image related stuff, it was one of those where I always said I'd get an iMac to add to my hardware library. EVERYTHING just seems nicer on an iMac. Must be the Retina screen...

    It depends want you want to do. The rumor is the 5K iMac Pros are supposed to be coming out soon, unless there out already.

    Yeah I tend to use my iOS devices because they are so much faster than my entry level 2014 Mac Mini. My Mac Mini is so slow that I would even dare putting professional software on it, so I don't do any photo editing on my Mac. Would the iMac be a big difference over my 1.4 GHz Mac Mini with 4GB of RAM?

    Most certainly. Of course, there are various options. Mine:
    - 27"
    - i5
    - 16GB memory
    - 2TB fusion drive (128GB SSD)
    - 4TB USB backup drive
