    We are thinking of upgrading from our 24" imac to a 27" with SSD. Few questions for you guys:


    1. Is the SSD worth it?

    2. Is the 2.9Ghz speed upgrade much of a difference

    3. Is 8Gb ram enough ? My son is on photoshop and illustrator, but my wife and I use this for browsing and some applications.

    4. Best way, if possible to transfer software from iMac to iMac? I do not have original discs.

    Thanks in advance

    Yes, go with the SSD you will be extremely happily with it (have one in my 24). 8 gb of ram should be more than enough.
