Hi guys, I need some words of wisdom here. I can't help it, I have decided to buy now. After a couple of trips to the Apple store and getting my hands on the product, I have made up my mind on getting the imac now. I am contemplating the refurb 27' i3 3.2 Ghz. This one fits my budget very smoothly. However, for future proofing reason, I am also looking at the refurb i7 quad core 2.8 Ghz. My use of it would be: Word processing (a lot of it) Web, emails ... Movies Gaming (very rarely) Programming (which, in perspective, will likely to increase in intensity...) So my question is that 27 imac a good purchase? Would you please give me an approximation of the life expectancy of such machine (the i3 27' one)? I currently have a late 2009 MBP 2.26Ghz Ghd C2D that I plan on upgrading either later this year or in early 2012. So does this give a good margin to just go for the i3 imac? Any input would be much appreciated!
