I know that what is being offered currently is more than enough for my needs but it's always nice to have the most recent equipment. It looks like the 2011 imacs were released in May so if it's a 1 year life cycle then the 2012's are still a while away. I'm looking to make the jump from PC to Mac for the holidays and was just seeing if it was worth waiting an extra month or to go all in now. For what it's worth, I was looking to get this iMac: 21.5-inch: 2.7GHz 2.7GHz Intel Core i5 1920 x 1080 resolution 4GB (two 2GB) memory 1TB hard drive1 ATI Radeon HD 6770M with 512MB But wanted to upgrade the hard drive to 2 TB's and future proof it with more than enough space. Would anyone recommend a bump in RAM?
