Why Does Apple Not Make an 30-inch iMac?

Apple stopped thinking big when it comes to displays years ago. Why is there still no 30-inch iMac today?

I just found out from my tax consultant that my iMac is worth nothing anymore from a tax perspective. This means I should think about purchasing a new one. My iMac is from 2011. In the past 4 years the iMac got thinner, increased resolution and faster, but not bigger. Why is the iMac still stuck at a 27-inch screen size? A quick look at 4K Monitors shows that sizes of 30, 32, 34 and higher are common and priced under $1,000. It can't be cost that holds back Apple to introduce a larger size iMac.

Apple offered years ago a 30-inch Apple Cinema Display, but it was discontinued. Apple apparently thinks, screens larger than 27-inch are not good for us. I believe it is time to offer a larger iMac. Everyone I know who works daily with an iMac in their job opts for the 27-inch. I consider myself an early adopter and extreme power user. The people I see every day in my shared office space only use a handful of apps.

I have 6 desktops in constant use filled with over a dozen apps. A larger screen with more resolution would allow me to have a better overview. I don't feel looking at my 27-inch iMac right now that my eyes and brain would be overwhelmed with a larger screen. Heck. Most Windows guys these days buy a 30-inch or larger screen.

Apple introduced for Fall already a new 21.5-inch iMac with 4K Retina display. It is unlikely that Apple will unveil anything new still this year. Will Apple finally make a larger iMac in 2016? I hope my story gets them thinking. If you also want a 30-inch iMac, vote yes in the poll below. Let's show Apple that we want a 30-inch iMac, or even a bigger one? That option is also below in the poll.
