Imac 27" i7 for primary photo editing workstation: any user feedback?
Jul 29, 2010


I am in the market of adding a new desktop to my currently 15" MBP. I've been using my 15" MBP for the last 3 years for primary photo editing in LR and CS3. I'm really liking the 27" new i7 quadcore to be my primary workstaion. My only gripe is the glossy screen.

I'm looking for feedback from current 21 and 27 inch users regarding the screen. My MBP (2007) has a matte screen and I've never had an issue with the screen. Is the glossy screen that much of a distraction for pro photo editing? I understand they can be calibrated also. I've been reading the forums here to find out if the screen is viable for pro photographers, only to find bits and pieces.

My other road would be the new Mac Pro. I would just hate to splurge out the cash for it and screen(30" Apple).

Any feedback is welcome,
