    While I'm waiting for the latest iMac refresh to become available in Korea, I've been poring over the specs, and this forum, about OS X information and preparing for migration.

    Here's my big question: will I run into performance issues with the base 27" model? It's not that I'm going to do full-screen gaming or video editing -- I need the real estate so I can primarily keep multiple word or web documents open. Also, given the prevalence of MS in Korea, I'll have a VM for IE (cure you ActiveX). Gaming will be an occasional thing, as I have other avenues for that.

    I'd suppose with just that, it should be enough...please don't say I'm wrong :)

    Well I just can say ... whichever iMac that´s not hi-end 27¨ is a capable & excellent machine for working. It can satisfy your needs, both on MacOS or Windows ... rest assured :)

    Hi-end iMac is a $1500 Mac + $500 gaming machine, which quite capable and satisfy most of gamer out there

    So basically with what I have in mind, I shouldn't run into any problems whatsoever despite 512MB of VRAM, right? I just can't seem to justify paying a lot more for 1GB.

    No, there would be no problems at all for that. Even a 128MB card could do that.

    I'm in Korea, too. I noticed that the new iMacs are available to buy today! However upon clicked that I wanted a trackpad delivery went from 3-4 days to 3 weeks!!!

    The crazy thing is you can buy the trackpad separately and it ships in 24 hours!
