After three iMacs in a row, with the last being a 2010 27 incher, I decided to jump ship and go with the 2012 mini with an ATD. In the end, it seems like a less expensive upgrade path since I can buy a new mini for a lot less than a new iMac down the road. Also, I really wanted to add an SSD to my 2010 iMac, but after going through the adventure of opening up a previous model, I didn't want to try it again. OTOH, I was able to open up the mini with far less struggle.
I don't think we'll ever see a consumer-level MacPro-type that's easy to upgrade. Looks like the mini is the best we're getting in that regard

Waiting on more user reviews, especially as to heat and fan noise with 680mx. Tend to be a chicken about being earlier adopter.

I want to upgrade from my 2008 iMac very bad and am extremely excited by the new iMac lineup but part of me would wait even if I had the cash for the following reasons:
How will this new ultra-thin, minimal-ly ventilated design hold up to heat in the long run?
Will Fusion Drive be a stock configuration in the next revision (I bet so..)?

While sleek in design, lacks to many features. a 256mb SSD option would have been nice, leaving the optical drive also helpful. I feel that keeping an external drive in my drawer defeats the purpose of an All-in-One.
