iMac 21.5" max (fusion drive, 650M, 16 Gb ram)
imac 27" only 680mx upgraded ?
I would never go with a smaller iMac version after buying the 20" that I have The reason for this is because I use it as not only my main computer for all my computing needs, but also as a pseudo TV every once in a while. Because of this, I would always recommend getting the larger version.
I went with the 27" for several reasons, not only because of the screen size. The the processors are faster, and the hard drive is faster. I thought the 27" might be too big, but now that it's here...I love it!
hmm you have the same processor that 21.5" high end has, i mean 2.9 ghz quad core. But think about that the resolution is higher too, 1920*1080 vs 2440*1440
Once you've experienced 27" you will never want to go back to 21". So if you are presently OK with a 21" or smaller then stay away from the 27" or else you will become addicted to it with significant consequences to your bank account.
For bootcamp after i make the particion for win7 for the installation of it i will need a normal usb keyboard? Until the drivers for wireless and magic mouse are installed on win 7?
Serban, nope, wireless will be detected too
As long as you select the option to allow for the program to download and install apple drivers for windows then yes.
I mean in the steps in installing windows 7(not after), my wireless keyboard and mouse will work during the installation? i ask this because i know the drivers for them are installed after windows 7 is done.
I've heard problems with screen on 27" like image retention and yellow spots/dust. Not sure though.
I got a 27" and the screen is perfect..... if it turns up and its not perfect send it back for replacement/refund cant really go wrong
The 21.5" are too small for me. My gf has one and it just looks weird compared to my 24".
On the flip side I feel that 27" is too big, it's a shame they scrapped the 24" size.
I totally agree! I'm just afraid the 27" might be too big. Hopefully it'll work.
27" is too big for me. I have a TD and it is too massive and makes it hard for me to focus on the screen which is why I went with the 21.5". It also takes up less room which was something else I was going for. Having said that, I don't work on media or anything to intensive. Mainly business type work.
I just want the 680MX, but in a 21".
OP really made it difficult.
I love my new iMac. Thank God I got Fusion Drive (3TB), not really concerned about Graphic and RAM can always be upgraded in the future.
I say get the 27" with Fusion. Seriously, I had to check the box and made sure it was 27" because after I set it up it looked like I ordered the 21.5".
