Well, $800 (New Egg) is much less expensive than $2499. 


Cheaper from Amazon.  And even cheaper if you have Amazon Prime.

 Before = 121 G; after = 213 G.  That is a gain of 92 GB!  Haven't yet noticed any loss of data and everything seems to be working.  Today will tell.



Wish i was that lucky I went from 13 free to 21... a nice savings but not too big.

I'm holding off on Yosemite until a couple of mission-critical apps have fixed known bugs.

Same here - I'm currently writing on my Master's thesis, so I cannot afford any setbacks.

Me, too. Downloading iOS 8 right away taught me that lesson!

Regarding the excellent 24" UP2414Q Dell ...


I've been using this monitor for a few days with an Macbook Pro 13 Retina late 2012 and it was a great experience with Mavericks. Just upgraded to Yosemite and all the fine HiDPI resolution vanished. What a frustration. Didn't find any hint how to fix. Will downgrade for now.


Had been working for 2 years with the builtin display only because I couldn't suffer the low resolution of my old 1920 x 1080 LCD display.


Does anyone have another idea?

Do I remember correctly that an iMac can be used strictly as a monitor? $2499 for 5K monitor is cheaper than the 4K Sharp monitor that Apple sells in their store.


Yeah, it's correct and unfortunate that the iMac 5K can't be used strictly as a monitor. Dr. J's suggestion would have been great if it could!

Yes, it is.


BTW, i just priced a maxed out iMac on the Apple store. Would you believe $4500?


I'm debating on whether my next desktop Mac should be iMac 5K or Mac Pro. Neither are cheap (and I'm not buying either now). I will be getting into weekly HD video editing in Final Cut down the road, so that's the one thing leaning me toward Mac Pro (that and I have a 27" monitor sitting on my desk).
