My 2015 new year resolution……

My 2015 new year resolution is….. 5120 x 2880.
OK, some of you might go “HUH? What’s that?”. Other’s will know that I’m talking about screen resolution. Yes, I just got the Apple 27 inch iMac with Retina 5K display few weeks ago, hence the 5120 x 2880 resolution. OK ok, I know this is a lame joke.
I decided to get the new 27 inch iMac with Retina 5K display because the iMac I’m using is getting old. I’ve been using the old iMac for 7 years. It is hard to imagine that my old iMac managed to last that long. I use it almost everyday and it have been through tons of abuse. I’ve replaced several keyboard and mouse over the years and changed the Harddisk once. The old iMac is still usable although can feel that it is getting slower and the internal speakers is getting softer. But hey, can’t expect much from a 7 year old iMac. I wasn’t even expecting the iMac to last that long when I first bought it.

So I got the new 27 inch iMac with Retina 5K display together with the Fibre Broadband plan that I sign up late last year. Got a bit of savings because of the bundle. The new iMac is worth every cent. The display is beautiful. The only problem is that it is hard to find 4K content to make full use of the display. I also need time to get used to the 27 inch display. Moving from a 21 inch display to a 27 inch display is a huge change. There’s so much screen real estate now.
Oh, I must say that Apple really put in a lot of effort to make the unboxing experience a pleasant one. I didn’t do an unboxing video myself but you can check out the unboxing video done by others. Taking the iMac out of the box is a breeze despite the size.

I don’t know if this iMac can last me 7 years like the previous one. (I hope it can) All I know is that this is the resolution that I’ll be having for the next few years.
I’m sorry if you are here for my new year resolution. Like the past few years, I didn’t make any new year resolution. Don’t believe in them.
