If you're gonna buy early 2012 anyway, I'd wait.Do you guys think it is a good idea to wait for the next gen iMac or buy one soon (January)?
Also, has anyone used the esata turnkey from OWC on their iMac?
3 words:I'm seriously considering a new iMac too, but I'm worried. I see many topics on bad screens and freezes. Sigh.
Oh, if/when I get an iMac I will surely get applecare too. But, from what I've read... this "condensation" problem that has been seen can be fixed...but come back later on. Just concerns me is all.If you're gonna buy early 2012 anyway, I'd wait.

Don't be.I'm seriously considering a new iMac too, but I'm worried. I see many topics on bad screens and freezes. Sigh.
You're right. I know I shouldn't base my thoughts solely off of what I see here, but its things like the link below that have me worried. I don't want to deal with that.Don't be.
While I'm not saying you won't have any problems with an iMac, don't judge them entirely by the threads seen here, the forum is bound to be full of topics about people's problems.
There's not much point in people starting new topics just to say how fantastic their iMac is and how it's had no problems. Similarly there's not much point posting in one of the said 'problem' topics stating that you don't have the problem. It's not particularly helpful or interesting information, so there's bound to be a huge bias towards the kind of topics posted.
I would wager it is a very small percentage of iMacs that have that problem. I would also think if you get an iMac with the problem you can take it in and have a Genious fix it for you.
You are referring to the news of the "mobile" Ivy Bridge release date of May.News on the web says Ivy Bridge will not be out till May 2012, so no new iMac before that.
Actually they do use desktop CPUs, only the GPUs are mobile.iMacs use mobile CPU's.
The company I work for, we have about 15 iMacs, most are the 27 inch ones and some are 24 inch. About half of those 15 have this screen smudging issue and it does seem to manifest itself over time. The worse are the 24 inch ones as they've been around longer and it does get really bad. Some of my friends haven't had this issue, but perhaps it's because it's their personal computer and they obviously don't leave their iMacs on as long as iMacs in offices. I want to buy an iMac too, but this smudging problem is just too much for me to bear. I'm happy to just hang around until the 2012 iMacs come out and read more reviews before I buy.
