We're running with 8 gb right now and CC is slow as hell. I asked for 6 new 27" Retina iMac's yesterday and to upgrade all existing Macs to 16 gb. Might want to consider making that 32 gb I guess.

Talking to myself I know but...just ordered 6 of these bad boys. Got the order in before years end:
(also getting an extra 8 gb ram from OWC for each of them)

Nice. I would think about 32g of RAM... although, if it isn't a SSD, it might not matter, since that might be the slowest component, and not the RAM, of a lot of tasks.

I can really see it with batch tasks, heavy read-write stuff. Running scripts and exporting large PDFs... like moments vs minutes, compared to the '09 iMac.

Honestly InDesign is the heaviest stuff we do here and most of our designers are just working on the local paper that is usually 4-6 six or eight page sections and we have been running with 8 GB. So 16 will work oK I think. Of course I would prefer 32 GB but after spending $12.6 K on the new iMacs I can't get greedy on the RAM. All of our Macs, even the new ones coming all have two 4 GB RAM chips in it and to go to 32 GB we would have to remove the two 4's and buy four 8's for each machine. That would be the 6 news ones and the 6 old 27" iMacs. That would add another $2,853 for just RAM upgrades. I would have preferred SSD's also but I got my i7 CPU so I'm happy with the Fusion drives.

When I get the 6 new ones we will now have fourteen 27" iMacs. :)

All but a very few of the 20" and 21.5" iMacs will probably be sold locally.

Upgrades? What's that?

Been reading up about upgrades on the PC side. I've been away for far, far too long. Everything has changed.

Joe, you could have gotten just one computer for the whole department.

Wow...Apple is fast. Ordered them about 5:00 pm yesterday. They shipped from California last night and are going to be delivered today. Then everyone there gets to look at them sitting there in the box until I get back next Tuesday. :evil:

I agree, Joe... you made the right choices. Besides, they are for the dezinerz... daddy still gets the SSD and 32g Ram, right?  :mrt:

Well I was on the fence about upgrading, until I saw these two features and they alone pushed me over the edge. I'm installing.

That's the sound I heard, instead of laughter, after posting.
