My Gear: 27″ iMac (Mid 2011)

My current desktop machine is a beefed up 27″ iMac. I love this thing, every time I go on the road with my MacBook Pro I look forward to getting back to my iMac for serious productivity. Do you really need 27 inches?  Yes. With visual workspace I say more is better 90% of the time especially when working with HD Video and 18MP RAW images.  Needless to say, this machine should get me through 2013 with ease!
