Here it is. The new iMac. With a gorgeous Display. Well. At least with a high resolution display. First, I have to say: I love Apple Products. Most of them. In my household, there are plenty of them. iPhones, iPad, (the old) Mac Pro, MacBook, MacBook Retina, MacMini and iMacs. Darn. It’s actually a lot [...]
