So in a situation here just wanted to get some more opinions. I have a 27" i7 at my desk with 8GBRAM and an external G-Tech GSafe 2TB RAID external. This machine absolutely FLIES! Very impressed by the screen, power, and build quality of the iMac. Now I have a graphics team here that works on Photoshop, Flash, etc and they have always been the buy the most expensive stuff no matter what. Budgets are important to me because I feel like the money they are wasting on machines could be spent on good external RAID and backups etc. So its time to buy new machines and they want to get the 2.26GHZ Octo with 16GB of RAM and 1TB internal HDD. I was suggesting getting the 27" iMac i7 with 16GB RAM and 2TB internal. Any other opinions on this. Not only will they save around $1000 dollars but now they can all have killer 27" screens.
