    21 is more than enough !!
    If you use your programs, shortcuts, .. proper there is never a need for a large screen.
    A bad workflow will ask for more screenspace..

    I worked on a 13" laptop for years. I thought that was enough real estate. But bigger is way, way better. I have a 27" Thunderbolt at work and my monitor at home feels so small now! The screen and colour quality is enough to put hearts in your eyes. With the 27", you don't need a second monitor as well.

    Go big or go home! And enjoy your new system :)

    I´d say 21 is more than enough too.
    If you have "budget problems", choose 21" and pick a SSD.

    I had the same debate and I went with the 27" iMac and have not regretted the choice for one second.

    my current computer is the 27" iMac and my next computer will be one too and the one after that. . .unless, Apple comes out with a larger screen than 27"

    I would prefer definitely go for 27" Because the more space means more efficient chance.

    Hola Angel!

    yo te recomiendo el de 27. He tenido un emac de 17", un imac de 20, un imac de 24 y dos imacs de 27 y no volvería a pantalla más pequeña.

    Vale la pena gastarse un poco más y consigues mucho mejor máquina. Además para trabajar en diseño la pantalla de 27 es mucho más agradecida.

    Seguramente si compras el de 21 al principio pensarás, está perfecto! no necesitaba más! pero con el tiempo acabarás pensando que si hubieras gastado un poco más el de 27 era mejor opción.

    Lo que también te recomiendo es que cojas la opción de fusion drive. Mucho más rápido que con disco duro normal y tienes más espacio que con un único disco SSD.

    Saludos!

    Hi Angel!

    I recommend you the 27. I had an emac 17, an iMac 20, an iMac 24 and two 27 imacs and would not smaller screen.

    Worth spending a little more and get much better machine. In addition to work on the design screen 27 is much appreciated.

    Surely if you buy the top 21 to think is perfect! no longer needed! but eventually you'll end up thinking that if you had spent a little more than 27 was best option.

    What I also recommend is that lame fusion drive option. Much faster than normal hard drive and you have more space than a single SSD.

    Greetings!

    27 screen

    a 27 is nice for graphic design. A bigger screen is always nicer.

    Everyone is saying 27", and I agree.

    But a bonus, the 27" has user replaceable ram, so you can upgrade it yourself for a fraction of what apple charges!

    Hi Angel,
    To my experience, the decision would largely depend on what your budget is, if money isnt an issue, I'd say go for the 27", if you do both graphic design and video work it'd come real handy, also as someone previously mentioned It'd be good to go with SSD fusion drive, the SSD's are so much faster than your regular HDD that it just doesnt make any sense to purchase a computer without it! Also, as with apple products, its probably good to find out if there is a refresh due to come out anytime soon, you wouldnt want to waste it on buying an imac and then a few months later a new and improved spec comes out:) Hope this helps!
