Yes, I know. This is another "Should I buy an iMac?" thread and most of the people here might be tired of people asking the same question but I think sometimes it's good to get input from different sources. I've been doing my research and I'm well aware that the new refresh should be coming sometime this year. I'm a PC user switching to Mac so I want to get something that at least holds me up 3-5yrs. I've never been the type to want to own the latest and greatest unless it was truly worth it so I'm fine buying last year's model and even getting a refurbed one to save some extra bucks. So I guess my dilemma is just wondering if the new one could truly be worth the wait. I don't want to buy the mac only for the new one to have way more extras than the one I bought. A couple things here and there, I could live with, for example the 2010 model compared to the 2011. Not sure that I would want to be the guinea pig and test out a completely new and revamped product that's full of bugs only for them to refresh and fix them midway through the year and repackage a refreshed version. One more thing. Typically when new products roll out, does Apple reduce prior models in price significantly? for example a couple of refurbed iMacs I was looking at are: Refurbished iMac 21.5-inch 2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 Originally released May 2011 21.5-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen display 4GB memory 1TB hard drive 8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) AMD Radeon HD 6770M graphics with 512MB memory? Built-in FaceTime HD camera $1,249.00 and Refurbished iMac 27-inch 2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 Originally released May 2011 27-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen display 4GB memory 1TB hard drive 8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) AMD Radeon HD 6770M graphics with 512MB memory? Built-in FaceTime HD camera $1,419.00 Like if I wait a bit longer, could it be possible the 27" drops below $1400 or should I just pull the trigger and get it now? My HP desktop is on it's last leg but might be able to pull it through a month or two .
