Anyone seen this? Slashgear review of the 27" iMac

http://www.slashgear.com/apple-imac-27-inch-2012-review-05259551/

Reviews the 27" don't know how they got one already.

Reviews the 27" don't know how they got one already.

Certain review sites and companies get them ahead of time as test units etc.

Good review! thanks for posting.

I wouldn't mind trading my 2010 iMac for the 21.5" but I can't see that happening any time soon. I have no expendable cash. boo me!

the most interesting thing in that review is the Geekbench score - which at 14064 is higher than the one listed here http://browser.primatelabs.com/mac-benchmarks

it's also a good deal higher than the i7 21"

clearly these scores are only half the story compared with real-world usage, but still....

That geekbench may be from a different model e.g. No fusion or 680mx

Encouraging score. Would have liked to see 15k. Do you think any better with 32gb ram and a straight SSD?
