Should I buy an iMac with Retina 5K Display?

Episode 1190 (1:54:08)

Michael from Santa Monica, CA
Apple iMac with Retina 5K Display

Michael's iMac needs to be replaced and he was about to buy a refurbished Mac when he heard the price of the 5K iMac was dropped. Leo says that not everything Apple does gets a huge announcement. The 5K iMac is gorgeous, but he shouldn't consider the hard drive upgradable. Only the RAM can be boosted in that model. An iMac with 8GB of RAM is pretty good, and a 1TB fully spinning drive is good. Or he can go with a 256GB SSD and use an external hard drive for data. An SSD is the single best upgrade for most computers. It really does speed them up.
