Re: ? - 27" iMac vs Retina MBP as a desktop machine.

If you are serious about video, speak to people who do it on Mac's. I used to do video and my son does video for bands. Year's ago I switched from a dual 1.87 Quicksilver to a 2.8 iMac. Benchmarks claimed the iMac was 3 times quicker and the hands down winner in every criteria. Right, rendering or encoding video on that old iMac was like watching grass grow.

The new iMac's are obviously faster, but when the old one was new, it was also supposed to be "faster".
