I was waiting to get an iMac for about a year and a half now. It seemed that the time was so long I was hoping for a touch screen iMac. That would have been great to me because I imagined using a virtual recording studio audio mixing application like Logic Studio and being free of the mouse, wow. You can do these things now on the iPad, but it would be great to use the 27 inch display as touch screen for creating music. I heard that Lion OSX is more like IOS interface already so naturally it looks like we are very close to a touch screen world already. I stuck with OSXv10.6.8 for my I7 MacBook Pro, because I didn't feel the desire to go into a major change of of the GUI.
