iMac showdown 2016 extravaganza - plz halp
I currently have a 13" 2015 MBP and love it, but I'm looking to get an iMac to go along with it and have more screen real estate to work with. My primary uses are editing photos in Lightroom and Photoshop, with some light gaming via BootCamp on the side.
Currently two options I'm looking at are either:
Late-2012 iMac, 3.2GHz i5, 16GB RAM, 3TB spinning drive, GTX 675MX, 2560x1440 27" - $850
Late-2015 iMac, 3.3GHz i5, 8GB RAM, 2TB Fusion drive, AMD R9 395, 5k 27" - $2000
My primary reason for considering the 2015 model is the beautiful 5k screen, which seems like it would be very useful for photo editing. Would it make a huge difference? Does 2560x1440 hold up on that big of a display? Looking at performance numbers the 2012 model should be about on par with my 2015 MBP, which should be fine, but the resolution is my biggest sticking point.
Thanks so much for any input!
