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.

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?
