FAQ! What should I buy, between an iMac and a MacBook Pro?
Maybe, iMac pro 5K Would be the pick!
iMac 5k will be better option than MacBook Pro. iMac with 5k is better than MacBook Pro 15″ in every segment. Better display, better RAM speed, better CPU, better GPU, more ports.
Big screen and 5k resolution is better for For Video editors so for these work, iMac is the best device and wise choice over MacBook Pro. All your softwares will run flawlessly on iMac 5k.
If Portability is not main priority then iMac with 5k retina would be great option.
Also with iMac you do not need to worry about backup. Heavy video editing, music production, graphics design drain battery at faster rate. So you need to plug in charger frequently which can affect battery of MacBook Pro. With iMac you don’t need to worry about it.
You have to customise iMac while purchasing because if you purchase iMac from store, you will get Quad core i5 and 8 GB RAM. So Customise iMac with 5k which has 3.5 GHz i5 processor. 1st model you can not upgrade in CPU. So I suggest customise iMac to 16 GB RAM and Quad core i7.
