I sense the next iMac update could end up with a Retina display and my latest and greatest will also no longer apply. That's OK, I suspect the performance would either drop a bit or remain the same to keep up with the much higher resolution. Besides, every file I have thrown at my iMac has opened in less than a second and all the editing I do is happening in real time. I don't see my image files getting larger in the future so this iMac, and with the help of Thunderbolt, will last me a lot longer than my previous computers. In any case, both of our iMacs have great resale value.

At this point a Retina screen would add more $$$ so I wouldn't opt for it.

I agree that the newer iMacs do have more staying power but it's also possible that something more efficient in software and hardware could make something obsolete in a few years. So without a crystal ball, I'd say most likely that your right.
