Hey everyone, I'm about to purchase my first iMac, and I wanted to get some input before ordering. I cannot wait for the refresh to happen because I need the machine within a week, so I will be buying the current model. I am going to use it for photoshop, illustrator, some CAD programs (mostly to design skis), and general web browsing and office use. I've gone through many threads on here and it seems to come down to the i5 with 1GB vram or the i7 with 1GB vram. My main question is whether it is worth the extra $200 to upgrade to the i7? I understand it's only an additional $200 when I'm already spending 1800 (refurbished), but I don't want to spend $200 more if it isn't worth it for my purposes. So, what do you all think? Will my usage take advantage of the i7? Thanks for any input. Note: I will be upgrading the RAM to 12 GB total once I receive the iMac ----------------------- UPDATED: I wised up and bought the i7. I'm really looking forward to using it.
