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

I faced the same question late last year, and went with the Mac Pro laptop initially.  I had previously used the prior version of the iMac, and I found it to be very unsatisfying to the laptop doing even still image editing in Aperture on the small screen.  Ultimately gave that to my wife and bought the newer iMac, with which I'm most pleased.

I agree completely with those who note that the gloss is not an issue, at least not in my home with normal ambient lighting.  My strong vote to consider the 27" iMac unless you really want/need the portability vs. image viewing experience.
