    Just received my imac which is the base model with the fusion drive, this is my first imac and so far im amazed at how good it looks and the quality of the display. ive just ran the blackmagic speed test and got 318mbs write and 700mbs read. if anyone has any questions i will try and answer them. i will try and put windows on it tonight and see what the iris pro graphics is like.

    just installed Diablo 3 on osx and ran act 3 on 1920x1080 with everything on high and AA on, im not sure how last years model did but it ranged from 35-40fps. Which is so much better than im used to, as i had a mac air 2011.

    Im hopefully getting this computer soon, but with a 256gb ssd instead of the fusion drive as they are both the same price to upgrade.

    Does the HDD from the fusion drive make noice a lot? Of is it (almost) completely silent?

    Just posted a thread about this, on the 27 inch I consider it noisy and am considering returning my new iMac for an alternative. I understand the 21 inch uses 2.5 inch drives which can be quieter.
