A year later, it’s still on my desk

I am informed by the good people of ThinkUp that it’s the first anniversary of me setting up my 27-inch Retina 5K iMac.

I’m still using (and loving) it. Yes, there’s a new version now with fancy new features, but this one’s still the best Mac purchase I have ever made. I really, legitimately have no complaints. I’m happy I opted for the 4 GHz Core i7 processor upgrade, 16 GB of RAM, a 500GB SSD, and the upgraded graphics package. And after fretting about buying the irrevocable, unchangeable, VESA mountable version rather than the standard foot-stand version, I’ve been quite happy with having my iMac on an arm rather than my desk.

For more details about my desk setup, which really hasn’t changed much in the past year (other than me velcro-taping my Thunderbolt hub and USB audio interface to the underside of my desk), check out my post from a year ago.
