    Hi,
    I've seen a 2012 Imac 27 core i5 3.4 with gtx680mx on FutureShop for sale.

    1er question : You can have a core i5 + a gtx680mx ? i thought only the i7 model had the gtx680mx .

    Also on the Best Buy site (same compagny same model) it say the gtx680mx has only 1 gig...

    I think its a mistake and in fact its a 2012 Imac Core i7 3,4 with the gtx680mx.

    What do you think ?

    Thanks.

    Many here own the late 2012 with the i7/2GB 680MX
    the 675MX is 1GB

    If I remember correctly, the 680 was a BTO upgrade on the i7 and not the i5 in the US

    French model, so it could be different from the US models

    US models end with LL/A and this is C/A

    Best buy is the same as FutureShop.
    Its the same compagny.
    They both have the same model number.
    I guess i can always return it if its not what was described on the spec.

    I dont want the 675mx

    Perhaps you should check the Apple Store refurbs - in that price range, you can buy a little above this model. Just a thought

    I've just received my iMac27.
    A brand new core i7 3.4 8 gig ram + gtx680mx and 1tb fusion drive for 1600 US (1800 can) at futureshop.ca
    I think its a good deal even if its a 2012 the specs are really good.

    There was an error in the description . Its an i7 not a i5 and it come with a fusion drive (not specified)

    thanks fir the help thedeske :)

    Edit :
    Its was around 400$ less than the refurbished model on the Canadian Apple site
