BEST PRICE SO FAR! :) I was searching for one of these as I was pretending I could afford it, I sometimes do this with hypercars and supermodels.

This is £1875 and in stock.

REMEMBER to remove these items at checkout :

Desktop Setup £30 and Slim Credit Card 1100Mah power bank (why we don't want this crap!)

That brings the price back down to £1875.

I nearly fell off my chair when I saw this deal, I need to get the bolts tightened under where the gas lift thing is but anyway I digress, this is apparently the most awesome computer display in/on a computer in existence today for the consumer.

Wow that thing is such a rip off, Core I5, HDD, AMD 290X and 8GB of 1600mhz DDR for £1875.... can build that for £500 and then buy a 4k monitor for another 500...

but it will not be a 27" Apple iMac 5K Core i5!
The fact that it is Apple made it even worst. iMac is fugly. even Lenovo all-in-one pc looks much better

You people have some weird ideas lol. Are there any pro users out there? What do you base your buying decision on? Specs or looks?
both. and pro users? really? you are a joke. i5 on 5k is just stupid, especially if you are mentioning 'pro users'. for editing, you need i7, because a grand for i5 is just a rip off. and 5k screen? at this price, you can get a complete rig with dual 4k screen (now thats 8k)

Dude chill, just because you're a stranger to me and hiding behind your keyboard doesn't mean you should act in an aggressive and rude manner. I suggest there's no merit in you debating this with me, but have an open mind and research it yourself. I take onboard your points, I'm not a pro user and I'm sure one or two might comment on this deal if they see it. I'm merely here to provide a link to something which I think is a deal. If you wish to disagree with me on that, then that's your prerogative. Happy Christmas :)

this is classed as cheap?

No it obviously isn't cheap, but it's a deal. A deal is not actually always defined by being cheap. You can get expensive crap and cheap crap. This is an expensive computer desired by many and is the cheapest price I've seen for it so far, so I posted it as a deal :)

You can't, this has a 5K monitor not 4k! The only other monitor in existence is made by Dell and costs as much as this whole computer.

4k... 5k whocares? I bet the thing is still only 60hrz...

Professionals care, you can get a whole 4K video on the screen and get menus around it, so you can work at full video resolution. Also if you've seen the display it's truly mind blowing. I'm not an Apple fan, however this does look absolutely amazing.

1. If you are rendering anything at 5k, you'll need an i7
2. No game can run 5k, even on low settings a 290x will struggle big time.

Does look pretty though, my comp cost a grand to build and would smash this, but again... looks > logic for some people

I know it's hard to imagine you can get this amount of magic in a 27" form factor for £1875, I swear I woke up in a parallel Universe this morning, I will wake up tomorrow and this will be over £2 grand again.

Not for gaming, no computer system that isn't absolutely insane money can game at 4K properly yet, and your computer for a grand won't have a 5K resolution screen will it. Why would you just be rendering at 5K? Other known professional uses for such a resolution are image editing and video editing, this can do both of those.

No, my rig does not have a 5k screen, and to be honest I wouldn't want it.

90% of the people I know with Apple laptops/imacs use it for Facebook anyway ;)

Yes and you can get iMacs for £500 refurbished, I know as I sell them where I work. You wouldn't really want to buy this for Facebook and average use. Some people might as there's plenty of people that could easily afford this and just want the best iMac, however this is designed as a professional computing tool. The resolution allows more flexibility when using DAW programs for example. If you're a Logic Audio user, this could be a better solution than a multiple monitor setup.

Is this the same one at John Lewis Fishmaster for £1999?

Possibly John lewis may price match if you submit a request, not sure though depends if they class Bhs Direct as having an offline presence through Bhs

Heat added btw

Regarding the 4k v 5k issue for the Pro market:
Would't it be better to have dual monitors with one at 4K and the other say 1080P rather than pay through the nose for a single 5k monitor tied to a chassis with very limited upgradability?
Or you could have 2 4K monitors with one being cheaper for general usage (menus etc) and use the other for media.

The CPU is not soldered to the mainboard in this unit, so the HDD, RAM and CPU are upgradable. Not sure about the GPU but that was custom designed with AMD as nothing else drives a 5K resolution in an all in one computer. All the colour gamut and panel quality will be top notch. You'd have to factor that in to buying two 4K monitors, last thing you want are two crap TN based panels.

This would be a punt but if the 20% off Currys vouchers come back in stock order £2k of vouchers for £1600 - stack with the O2 £50 priority moments discount and possibly a £10 Amex statement credit = £1540 @ Currys

Lots of complexity in that though and currently the code is expired.

I have no issue with the deal just curious whether a Pro would ideally go for such a system as it's a mainstream desktop spec attached to a high res and high quality screen. It just seems a very unbalanced spec for a Pro multi-media system.

Check out some reviews, the most informative are the Mac Pro and iMac 5K comparison reviews, where knowledgeable people, weight up the pros and cons of the 5K iMac spec, in fact a few have considered selling the Mac Pro and getting the 5K iMac.

It very much depends on your workload as for less intensive tasks the quad core Haswell options that these offer should be acceptable compared to the monster CPUs that a workstation offers.
I’m surprised how inexpensive the dual socket Haswell Xeon 6 core chips are as they start at ~£320; 6/12 cores/threads 2.4/3.2GHz 85W.
Even the 8 core version is only just over £500 which seems good value when you look at the cost of the single socket 8 core Haswell-E which is ~£800. For £200 more you get dual 8 core processors but obviously there are other costs involved with a dual socket system.
Goes to show how much Intel are milking the high end desktop when Xeons seem cheap in comparison. ;)

Muhd, you've been a member for over a year and contributed sweet nothing. When I say sweet, a 6 day dead horse farting 2 week old curry is sweeter.
While an iMac to some is over priced tat. This is as good a deal you will get without kidney donation or DSG voucher discount madness.

As for what you can buy in component or PC ready built form. That means nothing. Apple build and sell optimised and well selected parts to get the eat using their own OS. Pros do use macs, your ignorance puts you down as an amature keyboard warrior with no real experience.

If add more but I guess your comprehension is limited and I've been out for Mad Friday so can't be bottomed.

5k 27" monitor, looks nice but I'd end up hunting for the mouse pointer most of the time :(

This machine is a thing of beauty, especially for video professionals like myself, who are looking to shoot in 4K.
FYI: 5K, gives you the extra room for timelines and toolbars.

Dell recently cut the price of their ultra sharp monitors, because Apple's whole computer was very competitively priced.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-Ultrasharp-UP3214Q-Ultra-Monitor/dp/B00H2I9R7K

I've personally secured some match funding to help me purchase a fully spec'd one, from Apple (£2999.99)
So I can *cough* buy it for my nephew, who's a student... *cough* (-12%)

No video pro would go for an i5, they would spec up to an i7, like I am doing. ;)
i5 Might be good for photography specialists, maybe? If you use After Effects, you might want to go for a Mac Pro.
The reason they appear to be 'expensive' to the general public because in most cases they are not targeted at the general public.
Maybe an occasional clueless rich non-professional might buy one simply as a status symbol, and they would have no idea how to utilize it.

I see this argument all the time, 'Mac Vs PC', 'iOS vs Android'.
YES, sometimes you will find a phone with a better screen than an iphone, or a better camera etc etc...

But there is a non-tangible value that every iPhone/Mac carries.
There is value in knowing every professional I work with has one.
There is value in piece of mind that whatever I am using or viewing, my friends and colleagues are experiencing that exact same thing. A high standard, keeping everyone in sync.

Yes I am an Apple user (Used to be PC), but I am NOT a fan of how they do things. But in order for me to get on with my life and career, I stick with them, because they are organised, and help me interact with people effortlessly from my iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

It just works...

Among the 2 of them, you are the rudest. You only have 4 contribution after all in 4 years, dont need to be so rude either. Arrogant ignorant

Get a grip on reality mate!
The reality is that unless you use a quote in your post, we can only guess which poster you are referring to, mate.

Hot from me as this is the best current price available and thats what people are missing out on here!

Something worth noting as I saw a discussion on this above:

Using the Apple student discount you can get the i7 with a 4GB graphics card for £2.2k if I remember correctly. Scew all the other upgrades as you can upgrade them cheaper yourself. If you're really serious about gettkng this machine then I'd definitely consider upgrading though for the sake of a few hundered quid!

Another thing worth pointing out; there's a reason why these machines are so expensive - they're generally for "professionals" (I.e those who have a career in software development or media production) and not designed for 12 year olds to check Facebook lol. With Apple stepping up to be the first to release a 5k computer to consumers, I can't fault the price of these machines - they're absolutely stunning and I'm sure they're definitely worth the money. That being said, I'm a computer science student and I'd love one of these. If I wait another 20 years I should hopefully be able to afford one, although I expect a 64k projector to be invented by then and my eyesight will probably be too bad to tell the difference between VGA lol...

I bought one couple of months back and cost me over £2500 yeah in some peoples eyes it's a total stupid amount of money to pay for a computer but i needed a AIO machine with a nice display and to be honest i'll probably never go back to windows again mac software IMO is far easier to use.

Wow that thing is such a rip off, Core I5, HDD, AMD 290X and 8GB of 1600mhz DDR for £1875.... can build that for £500 and then buy a 4k monitor for another 500...

but it will not be a 27" Apple iMac 5K Core i5!
The fact that it is Apple made it even worst. iMac is fugly. even Lenovo all-in-one pc looks much better

You people have some weird ideas lol. Are there any pro users out there? What do you base your buying decision on? Specs or looks?
both. and pro users? really? you are a joke. i5 on 5k is just stupid, especially if you are mentioning 'pro users'. for editing, you need i7, because a grand for i5 is just a rip off. and 5k screen? at this price, you can get a complete rig with dual 4k screen (now thats 8k)

What made you come out the closet today?

I do hate people saying Macs are expensive because they're for professionals, like they're in some way magically different. I don't know why there are so many graphic designers who seem to think there's no alternative but it's annoyingly true. I work in the games industry and nobody I know uses one because most of our software simply isn't supported on a Mac and thank god it's like that is all I can say.

So as you can see I'm no Apple fan, but that said I don't think this is a bad deal just for the hardware right now. Is ther ethat much difference between an i5 and i7? Not really and driving the screen is down to the graphics card anyway. The monitor isn't just great because it's 5k, which is massively better than 4k for working with 4k, it's because it's an IPS panel, which means colours and viewing angle will actually be usable.

So, despite my rant, heat from me.

Hot. This is a great price for this product. No point entering into fisticuffs with the ill informed nay sayers!
