Bottom Line

The Apple iMac MK472LL/A offers a brilliant 5K display for design work and photo editing. However, it is slightly underpowered for serious 4k video editors.


The Apple iMac MK462LL/A is a bestselling 27-inch premium all-in-one PC that has been praised for its 5K Retina display, ample storage space, stylish metal design, AMD Radeon graphics and for its fusion storage drive. However, the 8GB of RAM is not ideal for intensive work and seems to be slightly counter intuitive as the 5K display with its great color gamut is ideal for photo and video editing. Luckily, the Apple iMac MK472LL/A can still be user upgraded and you can add a maximum of 32GB to this model. In comparison to its predecessors, the Apple iMac MK472LL/A is relatively cheap and is well worth considering for your next all-in-one PC upgrade.

    The two biggest changes are that every 27-inch iMac now includes Apple's 5,120x2,880-pixel-resolution Retina Display, and the entire 27-inch line has been moved up to Intel's latest sixth-generation Core i-series processors, also known by the code name Skylake. These iMacs were previously two generations of CPU behind.
