While I understand why some folks like unboxing videos, I just don't care for them. I want to experience the unboxing and have it be my own experience, not something I've seen someone on youtube do already. That's pretty nerdy in its own right, I know. Unboxing of an Apple product is the beginning of the "personal" touch and experience for me.

As for youtube videos, I like to see hands on product reviews.

Initial impressions even turned off side by side the new one has noticeably less glare. With black glossy powered off screen I can see about 20% of my reflection whereas my 2009 model looks like a mirror.

I'm going to be clearing my desk and giving it a good wipe-down ahead of receiving mine. So will likely do an unboxing to remember it by

The 27" seems to have a serious flaw...

They seem to be stuck at a 90 degree angle.

I had a 27" iMac (with a custom configuration) ordered way back in mid September, but by then it was too late since Apple stopped making them, and they only had stock ones. so i had to wait a long time untill i could update my order with the new iMacs, and im not sure if i will get it before 2013

What can I say? Congrats, you just flushed something like 800$ into the toilet because of not buying two 32gb RAM kits for those macs from 3rd party brands and installing it yourself in 3 minutes.

He's already getting the $1300 SSD. He goes on the "money to burn" list.

Well, you know, at least 1300$ SSD is something understandable - some people do need that SSD capacities and don't want to avoid a warranty after DIY installations. But 2x600$ for RAM which is user-accessible and can be replaced in a minute?
