    Yes I waited to buy my first iMac and glad I did.

    My question concerns 21.5" and heat dissipation. I like the specs, the 4850 video card but will this model have a heat issue? Your expert thoughts and advice is appreciated. Thanks!

    I doubt it. LED is "cold light" so the screen won't produce much heat.

    OP, where did you see or find a 21.5" model with the the ATI 4850 card? The 4850 is only available in the 27" one.

    You realize it has a new bigger enclosure right?

    Your are correct. My apologies, it is the HD 4670 as the 4850 is in the higher end spec. Just wondering how well the new iMacs will do with heat, I think the 27 will do okay, the 21.5 is a concern.
