Thumbs down The new iMac sucks!

Well after the pre-order release today and seeing all the BTO options, I can completely say the new iMac SUCKS. Only thing interesting going on is the Fusion Drive. Aight they improved the screen 680 days after.. now take a look at this:

New iMac Benchmarks Show 10-25% Improvement Over Previous Generation

I'm not impressed by Apple moves, just disappointed big deal. the Mid-priced 27" BTO are outrageous. Basically you'll need to go top..
Good luck breaking the bank if you're in for serious work and wanna get all the STANDARD features on today's computers.

DON'T BUY - If you need an iMac go for a refub 27" @ 3.4Ghz or a PC if you are mature enough to use Windows.

It might suck for you, but not for others. So just wait until next year's update, and see if that appeals to you.

I am not buying one, but I have a 2010 iMac that's quite fast enough for my needs. I'm more interested in a retina iMac, so I'll wait for that.

But a lot of people out there might enjoy one of these new iMacs, so I don't think these new models "suck" at all.

sooo... you're looking for agreement in a forum overrun by people that have been waiting on average 6 months for this update, and swarmed the Apple servers overnight. Good luck with that.

Seriously, what's the problem? Max out the 27" and stop whining? If you can't afford it then by all means build your own pc for half the price since you seems to be so mature.

lol at everyone willing to pay full price for 6 month old CPUs, and a hearty LOL to anyone willing to pay $1300 for the SSD!

$3098 for the top end 2011 imac is now $3897 for the same features (optical drive and applecare included), but you can't have a $100 hard drive with your $1300 SSD.

This just in: Intel's performance improvement when placed in an Apple chassis is identical to its performance improvement when placed in every other chassis. What, exactly, were you expecting?

I am not sure what you were expecting. IB is the die shrink of SB - not a new micro-architecture - every other release is a new micro-architecture. The memory speeds increased to 1600 MHz - this helps the memory bandwidth a bit and is reflected in the slightly improved geekbench numbers. Graphics performance appears to have improved. The latest and greatest, especially from Apple, always commands a premium price. As you indicated, a refurbed system will be lower cost.
