A great product from Apple Macbook pro and iMac came with such nice specification, but the low end model of iMac still uses 8 GB ram. Although it is configurable for 16 GB and 32 GB RAM. The low end model comes with R9 M380 with 2GB of VRAM and top end model configurable to R9 M395X with 4 GB of VRAM. The colours are stunning, and the visibility is superb from angles, but these are expected from iMacs and Macbook pro these days.
