    Should I go with a Refurbished iMac 27-inch 2.93GHz Intel Quad-Core i7 processor or a new 21.5 iMac 2.7GHz upgraded with the i7?

    I'd say take the cheapest since you're not going to do anything with it. Or are you?

    State what you want to do with the computer, applications, state your budget, your preferences etc etc.

    Eh, depends on what's more important to you. More screen space? Refurb 27".
    Faster processor and thunderbolt connectivity? Current SB i7.

    OWC is releasing a statement saying that apple has made it impossible for anyone but them to replace the primary HD...kind of diminishes my joy at my recent purchase.

    Guy on CL is selling a 256 mb samsung SSD....turns out he works at apple. Now to see if I can get him to install it in my iMac...bwah, bwah, bwah.
