  • John, Dave (and Pilot Pete, for goodness sakes!):

    Great immediate reactions and discussion.

    I, for one, had my wallet locked and loaded for a 27” M-powered iMac, and now, dazed and stunned, have vacated the battle field.

    Like Pilot Pete, I want, but do not require, the M1-Ultra Studio fully-kitted for my scientific work, but would seriously have to justify that cost unless I do it out of pocket. A hard sell on the homefront. Like Dave, I too might not only wait for the tear-downs and reviews, but for the refurbs, if I go high-end.

    As I commented on Jeff’s ‘Apple Discontinues…’ piece, I’m not convinced that the 27” iMac is dead; merely in an indeterminate state whose final outcome will be determined by Studio market performance. All of which begs not only patience and observation but adaptation and alternatives. Perhaps I might spring for a higher-end M1 Mini with a relatively inexpensive 4K display for my home office, and let the dust settle on the Pro and Prosumer level Macs.

    In the interim, there is no shortage of choices.
