    Any test showing or comparing the graphics of the i3 4670 and the i3 5670? Trying to see how much of a boost the upgrade is. Thanks.

    hmm..seems like not a huge difference...other than 5730 being DX11 compatible.

    Base 21.5 model looks to be the sweet spot now :p

    It looks like there is up to a 10% difference and in some 3D tests a 20% difference on the 4670 and 5670. And the 3.02 vs the 3.2 i3 chips there is around 5-10% difference?

    If so wondering which route to go need to get two. One mainly for Internet, Office, occasional HD. The other about the same except for occasional Digital Performer, and Final Cut Express.

    Are you 100% sure the 5670 is the 5730? I thought the performance difference would be similar to that of the 4670 vs 5670 desktop versions, i.e up to +50% FPS (http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/ati_radeon_5670_performance/page4.asp)

    Has anyone done (or link to) a gaming FPS comparison between the two new iMac 21.5 please?

    Looks like I'll be saving $300 getting the base model instead, thanks :)

    It's a 5730M, the device id people have posted matches the 5730m, how it's clocked I dunno
