Hi all, I'm looking at replacing my trusty 21.5" 2011 iMac with the 27" 2014 retina iMac. I've gone the refurb route before and I'm comfortable with the warranty coverage, AppleCare and all that. With the recent price drops and the additional savings of a refurb I'm looking to go with a 2014 27" 3.5 GHz i5 w/ 256 GB SSD and 8 GB ram and the M290X GPU. I've looked at the retina iMacs several times in stores, but it's always hard to tell if I'll appreciate the difference in my usage scenario. I do mostly web browsing, facetime calls, email, youtube videos and an occasional movie using Plex. I also use Windows apps in VMware. I do manage my pictures in Photos and I use lots of text-based apps. I rarely play games, and those are only in the Steam app. My questions are: Do you think I'll experience any of the heat problems others have had? Do you think this Mac will be quiet? I've had a 24" iMac before the current one. Is there an adjustment period to the bigger size? Do you think I should see some advantages (crisper text) for reading? Is the sound quality for listening to music while you work better than a 21"? Have some owners of the retina iMac had the broken stand problem? (where the screen leans forward) BIGGIE -- If I order to pick up in the Apple Store will they let me get a trackpad instead of the mouse? Apple's return policy is really good and I have no qualms about taking it back if it doesn't suit my needs. The best way to know is to try it for myself, but I do appreciate the input of you other owner's who may have similar uses and have owned other iMacs as well. Thanks!
