All tied up in a minimal, sleek, sexy, cutting edge top of the line package that "for some reason" everyone with any taste that can afford, ......WANTS.
As I look down the line of operating systems of the nay sayers "Windows, windows, windows". OOOooooo big surprise. You can build an ugly 4wd truck and run it through the mud if you want, I'll take my BMW.Screw #Winning, I'm #Juanning

Having my own IT company that started with building PCs, I can honestly say, the reliabilty of these iMacs is second to none. I've built my own hackintosh and had top spec PCs. I now run my business on my iMac and it's a dream. Sure, they cost a packet. And sure,if your a young kid or learning IT, go build your own. It's great fun and good experience. When your sick of living with a tower that has the side off so often you've thrown away the screws, and you have earnt enough to afford one, treat yourself!

whats up with all the weak cpu? I understand MBP having 2.2 and 2.7ghz because its a mobile device. imacs are non mobile device and they are only clocking in i5 at 2.5ghz? 2.7ghz? you have to spend $2000 to get a i5 3.1ghz? really apple? stock intel cpu i5-2500 is 3.3ghz and with a clockable version you can do 4.5ghz. The frame looks good but the internals are not.

2.5ghz has the intel i5-2400s, turbo at 3.3ghz
2.7ghz has the intel i5-2500s. turbo at 3.7ghz
2.8ghz has the intel i7-2600s. turbo at 3.8ghz
2.7ghz has the intel i5-2500s turbo at 3.7ghz
3.1ghz has the intel i5-2400 turbo at 3.4ghz
3.4ghz has the intel i7-2600 turbo at 3.8ghz
Only the i7 has it up to 3.8ghz. Like I said weak cpu. They are using the S models. They could have atleast use the regular instead the S models since they are the same price. TDP is only 30w more which is not a big deal for a desktop. That would have been a way better refresh. You have to spend $2000 just to have a non S model cpu.The upgrade prices are a joke.

I think most people know the upgrade prices are high on Apple products. But don't care.

All you guys can talk about are speed and graphics, but for real!! Where is the built-in blu-ray drive?! Give me a break Apple!!

it would be nice to have a blu ray drive. but you know steve jobs, he doesn't like blu ray. lol
btw, enough about specs, we should see how fast a mac is to boot up and shuts down. hands down, a good machine, more on the expensive side but you pay for the name and customer service. overall. monster machine which could be improved but thunderbolt is just around the corner.
