Hi,

I'm about to get my first mac but the best spec I can find on the Apple UK website is 27inch i5 quad core.

All the other options are core2duo.

What spec are the i7 models, where can I get them, and are they worth the price?

Click the select button under the 27" i5, and it will then bring up a page where you can change/upgrade parts etc. The i7 should show up as an option under the processor section.

The i7 is only built-to-order so click "Select" under the i5 iMac and it lets you customize it with i7 processor. The only difference is the CPU though. i7 costs 160 more than i5, meaning a total of 1794

OK thanks, do you think the i7 is worth the extra money?

I came to the conclusion that, for me, I do come video encoding, and gaming. The graphics card is the bottleneck for what I do - soI went with the i5 ass it's quite a performance boost over the C2D
