    Hi,

    I'm about to get my first mac but the best spec I can find on the Apple UK website is 27inch i5 quad core.

    All the other options are core2duo.

    What spec are the i7 models, where can I get them, and are they worth the price?

    Click the select button under the 27" i5, and it will then bring up a page where you can change/upgrade parts etc. The i7 should show up as an option under the processor section.

    The i7 is only built-to-order so click "Select" under the i5 iMac and it lets you customize it with i7 processor. The only difference is the CPU though. i7 costs 160£ more than i5, meaning a total of 1794£

    OK thanks, do you think the i7 is worth the extra money?

    I came to the conclusion that, for me, I do come video encoding, and gaming. The graphics card is the bottleneck for what I do - soI went with the i5 ass it's quite a performance boost over the C2D
