Other than your basic web surfing/emailing, my two main uses of my computer are ripping bluray's via handbrake (keeping iTunes open running home sharing for playback via AppleTV) and RAW photo editing via Photoshop. With a new baby on the way, I can see myself getting more into editing home movies as well. Like most people, price is my main concern with these choices. Going with the 27" model I will upgrade to the i7 (for benefits of faster handbrake encodes) and will likely max out the RAM (3rd party). I believe that the Fusion Drive would be fine for my needs, as I don't believe I have more than 128GB of hot data, but at the same time I don't want to be kicking myself for not going all out with the Flash Memory option. Also, will it help upgrading the graphics card from the 675MX 1GB to the 680MX 2GB, or will the difference be negligible with my most common uses?
