    My early 2007 iMac finally gave up the ghost this afternoon.

    She gave me years of trouble free Apple Awesomeness, so I cannot complain one bit.

    So a trip to the Apple Store and here I sit on my brand new 27" inch iMac and man it is nice! :D

    Looking forward to 8 happy years out of my new friend.

    So raise a glass of whatever you're drinking to my almost 8 year old iMac who left us today and say hello to my new 27" iMac :apple:

    Any reason for going for the non retina iMac? I'm just asking because in the market for a 27 inch iMac but cannot decide which one to go for.. retina or not.. looking at refurbs.

    Very nice! I have the same model iMac, 2007 24" and it's still going strong! I hope this isn't a sign of the end lol :eek:. Congratulations on your new iMac purchase! I am probably not too far behind you.

    I can't speak for the OP but I just went through buying an iMac 27 inch non-retina. Mine has maxed out specs though and since I based my model on speed scored of 64 bit single core (http://browser.primatelabs.com/mac-benchmarks) for mograph work the price premium for the 4k wasn't worth it being only slightly faster than a maxed out 27 inch non retina.

    Plus while I'm sure the retina has a beautiful screen I've never looked at an iMac and thought that it wasn't good enough.

    Well, as someone that owned a recent (2013) iMac, and now owns a Retina iMac, I would say you really need to see one for yourself. Once you do, you'll likely choose the Retina because the screen is just superb.

    If you do go with a regular iMac, make sure you get one with at least a Fusion drive or better still an SSD. It makes a huge difference to the responsiveness of the Mac.
