21.5 $1499 model without any upgrades I think. I'll connect it to a 24inch Dell IPS monitor. I've had 27's before and prefer having dual screens to one large one.
Wavering on wether to do the RAM or Fusion but then you're talking 27 inch price territory and I know this won't be a machine that lasts longer than a year. Sigh.

I am planning to get a NEW 27" IMAC and Planning to use Bootcamp for PC Gamming.
I work with Photoshop, and Adobe Premier, After Effects and I play WoW on MAC and Star Wars Old Republic and other PC only games. I have a Synology DS212+ NAS for Data and Backup.
27" 3.4GHz quad-core Intel core I7 with 8MB L3 cache $1999. + $200.
8GB Ram, Upgrade to 32GB 1600MHz DDR3 from OWC or Crucial +$200
1TB 7200rpm Fusion Drive + $250., or 768GB SSD $1300. with an External Thunderbolt Drive [LaCie 2big Thunderbolt Series 6TB (7200 rpm) Hard Drive Maybe] $669.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX Graphic processor with 2GB of GDDR5 memory $150.
AppleCare Protection Plan $149.
External Samsung SE-506AB Slim Portable Blu-ray Writer [$89.] to replace the Super drive Apple remove.
Choices of drive 768GB SSD [$1300.], 1T [$250.] or 3T [$400.] Fusion HHD, 1T [$0.] or 3T [$150] HDD
So the Price has a big range. $3037. 27" with 3.4 i7, 680MX, Optical Drive, 32GB Ram 1T Fusion Drive, and Apple Care. To a high of $4756. Drop the 1T Fusion and get 768 SSD with the External 6T Thunderbolt Raid Drive.
Most likely the $3037 Choice or maybe Add $150. more for the 3T Fusion.
The problem is with Bootcamp you need to partition your internal drive It will not work on an external Drive. When you have a Fusion Drive you have to partition HDD and use the non fusion HDD partition side for Bootcamp and Windows. You cannot use the SSD side for Windows so you lose the extra speed you may have if you could. (Note - 3TB drives can't currently be partitioned for Bootcamp.) and I rather use Bootcamp. I am confused as to what Drive setup I should get?
Now we get to the reason why I might wait before I get my Imac. Maybe OWC has looked into doing Turnkey with the New Imac's and Install Larger SSD [256GB or 512GB with a fast 1T HDD or 2T] with or without the Fusion part? Not knowing if the IMAC 27" Drive bay will even accept them? Here’s Hoping.
Apple may even fix Bootcamp to work with 3T HDD and Fusion 3T. But would be even better is for them to give upgrades of 256GB or 512GB ssd with the Fusion Drive. I may get the 768SSD But an extra $1300. is high .
So this is the reason I might wait to see what OWC is going to offer or Will Apple fix Bootcamp to work with a 3T Drive. We'll just have to see.

None of the above
Waiting on Rev B. Will be waiting on all your beta testing results.
Part of the reason, I am still saving and I would not be able to travel to the US this year and I am still up in the air between the iMac 2013 Rev B, Mac Mini + Cheap Display or MacBook Pro non retina 15 inch.
3rd Gen 32 GB iPod Touch

Can't vote, because you left out the BTO options. Here is what I'm looking at:
Will upgrade the RAM myself in a few months. 8Gigs is currently exceeding my needs in my MacBook.
Tossing in One-To-One, as I want some good training on Aperture 3 and have two Apple Stores in reasonable proximity to me. It should be a good deal as I can go as often as I can fit it in.
AppleCare, but I might add that later, as there isn't a reason to buy it right away.
Getting a Magic Trackpad, because I prefer it for most things, and have a supply of mice for when I need it.
Already bought my Superdrive when BestBuy had them on sale.
