Is Nano-textured glass needed?


Recommended Posts

I am looking at the new iMac’s and for an additional few hundred they offer the nano-textured glass. Is this necessary? It says it cuts down on glare but the brief web search I did said it also affects contrast. I don’t need anything that interferes with my editing.

I wouldn't get the extra fancy screens. I have a tricked out 2017 27" iMac with Retina Screen and it's fine. The glare, really isn't THAT bad. If I were buying a new iMac today, this is what I would purchase, start with the $2299 27" iMac:

Be sure to add AppleCare for $169. Then I would purchase this RAM Kit from B&H to increase your RAM from 8GB to 40GB:

32GB Upgrade Kit for 2019 - Current 27" iMac Systems - $134.99

Hell, for a total of $270, you can remove the existing RAM from Apple and bump your computer up to 64GB!

If you really don't care about budget and are willing to spend around $3200, Bump up the CPU to the i9 and Video Card to the Middle Option. Still get AppleCare and increase the RAM to 64GB and you will have a sweet system for a good 7-8 years.
