When my local Apple Store got the top spec version of the 27" iMac in stock, I caved in and picked it up. Many of my comments come from the point of view of someone who had what was effectively the predecessor "top of the line" model, the 2009 27" i7 equipped iMac.
The iMac that I purchased tips the scales at a hefty $2599. What do you get for this price point over the "entry" level 2012 27" iMac?
* Fusion Drive
* i7 quad core CPU with hyper threading
* Nvidia 680MX Mobile Graphics
When I pulled this new iMac out of the box, I placed it on the same L shaped desk next to its predecessor. Physically, the new machine is a dead ringer for the old one when viewed straight on. However, if it sits on a desk and can be seen at an angle, it's almost mind-boggling how skinny it looks. This is a bit of an optical illusion since it gets thicker towards the middle of the enclosure, but it is a gorgeous computer that will look right at home perched on a desk in your swanky office. The new Mac makes the old Mac look a bit chubby by comparison. One of the ways that Apple achieved this miracle of thinness was elimination of the optical drive. I have moved on to using a portable Blu-ray reader anyways, so this one doesn't bother me at all.Read more ›

FYI: On the 27 inch iMac the ram is easily upgraded by a rear pop out access door. If you decided to add two more ram sticks make sure you get oem comparable spec ram sticks, CL 11 PC12800s ddr3 1600 sodimm. Then simply install them into the two empty slots, 1 and 3. If you replace all ram sticks be aware that slots 1/3 and 2/4 are paired slots.
Had it not been for the stability of the WinXP platform, I'm sure I would have made this transition years ago. With MS's reputation for repeatedly rolling out OS's that seem aimed only at increasing their net worth, my move from XP to the Mac OS makes more sense each day.
The single thing I have noticed in this transition process that might be considered a negative is that there is not nearly the volume of freeware and shareware for the Mac as I was accustomed to during my years as a MS Win user. Also, the general cost of software for the Mac OS is noticeable greater than comparable Windows programs. Other than that, I am convinced that I made the switch at the right time, for the right reasons.
Thunderbolt and USB 3, great for data transfer. Lack of Firewire 800 is a pain, especially since i have a lot of drives and other equipment that uses the connector. So I had to buy a thunderbolt to firewire adapter, which is somewhat annoying. But taking a step back, it's not a deal breaker.
No SuperDrive? Well, that was almost a deal breaker, until I started to think about how often I actually use my SuperDrive on my laptop. I think I may have needed it twice, maybe three times in all of 2012. And I'm sure when I need it while using this iMac, I'm going to be annoyed. But if you have another apple machine in the house, it's no biggie because you can just connect wirelessly to that machine and use that drive. I tested that out and its incredibly easy to do. But I realize most people won't have this option. So if you're ripping CD's or burning CD/DVD's, you'll need to consider dropping another $80 for the SuperDrive.
The monitor is beautiful. I don't understand why people are saying its not. It's a 2560x1440, which is double resolution compared to most all-in-ones, let alone most 27" stand alone monitors.Read more ›
