So i've been waiting for this for a while, and I'm glad to see it. The new 27" iMac allows for video INPUT via the single displayport (as well as output). I'd really like to see how the reviews pan out on this, and to see how it works exactly (ie, does the imac need to be on for it to act as another display?). I do see this potential, however, for someone not wanting to spend money on a mac pro and 2 monitors. With two iMacs, both same specs, quad core, whatever ram/HDD config. iMac A sits right next to iMac B. iMac A is used for work (video/media editing) and iMac B is on, but used as the external monitor for iMac A. You've got a dual monitor setup. Now, when you need extra juice for compressor or xgrid or something, you have an extra machine waiting to be used! I see tons of potential in this for not only video editors but for developers and designers as well. You essentially have a $2000 - $4000 (depending on config) 27" IPS LED backlit huge-resolution monitor, that is also a pretty powerful rendering node on stand-by. I'd love to see someone try it out (I don't make money off of editing, or else I'd try it) because I think it would be a viable and cheaper alternative to a mac pro and 2 x 30" or 24" LED displays. Any objections? Imagine if a video shop bought 27" imacs instead of just displays, and used them as the external display for their editor's mac pros? They would have extra power for xgrid or compressor sitting behind everyone's display, instead of having to buy extra machines or servers to render content. I'm in want of a 24" monitor as I've been getting into programming lately, but I also do some video editing with my canon HF10 and FCE. I'd love to get a baseline 27" and use it as an external monitor for my 15" macbook pro. I checked Dell and the cheapest 27" monitor they have is just under $1000, so this iMac is a killer deal for the price in my opinion (external monitor plus another machine to stream iTunes library, eyeTV recordings, extra power for FCE, etc.). Just a thought to throw up and let anyone agree or tear it to pieces.
