I spent a lot of time debating upgrading to Apple's latest desktop product. After all, my 2009 27" iMac was still humming along fine... how much did I really "need" those upgrades, anyway? One factor was that Macs hold their resale value very well, and since mine was still covered by Apple Care, it would be far easier to sell it now, then a year or two later after all warranty coverage had expired.

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.

I ordered my 27 inch iMac, BTO 2.9 i5 w/ 1tb Fusion Drive, directly from Apple on 11/30/12 and received it on 12/17/12. Although I have only had the iMac for a short amount of time I am extremely impressed. It opens up photoshop CS6 so fast that I cannot read the credits and boots up in about 16.5 seconds, thanks to the Fusion drive. The 27 inch iMac also allows the ram to be upgraded very easily and I personally upgraded the ram to 24gb. As expected the design is visually stunning and thin, due to no built in optical drive. I did buy a external Apple SuperDrive and as a result I believe that the lack of a built in optical drive was worth it. The one draw back, due to the georgeous design, is learning how to stop staring at the iMac from the side. The iMac is also very quiet and does not even get warm to the touch. The new LCD screen is also a pleasure to look at. Reflections are no longer a problem and the image looks stunning.
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.

When my venerable old WinXP computer finally died, I looked at the latest offering from MS, was less than impressed, and decided to make the switch to the Apple OS. As is often the case, I found the best deal on Amazon, placed my order, and the Mac arrived a few days later. As I unwrapped the Mac, I was impressed with the high quality of the packaging, and surprised by the paucity of setup literature and attachements that were included. Then when I turned the computer on, I understood why there was not a collection of manuals, etc. included: as I watched and entered a few keystrokes as required, the Mac proceded to flawlessly set itself up. Since that time, the computer has operated without a significant hitch. The single glitch occurred one morning when, for about a minute, it could not find the wireless mouse. Otherwise, I have been pleasantly amazed at its operation and the simplicity of transitioning from my previous years of MS Win experience.

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.

I just purchased this machine, and so far, so great. It's a beautiful set-up, and it performs very well. I do a lot of photography and video work and the machine is handling the heavy files like a champ. Processing images on this machine compared to my older MacBook Pro, has been a dream. And to get some extra power in the machine, I grabbed another 8gigs of RAM for around $75, and I now run at 16gigs of RAM. Don't buy the RAM from Apple! You pay double the price if not more, than if you buy on ebay or Amazon. And all you need to do is pop the door off the back and pop in the two cards. So simple.

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.
