Ok so, I bought my very first Mac a few months ago ( 27" i7 2.8GHz 8gb ram 1tb HD ) Now the refresh has hit and i am really wanting to run dual displays....I have searched high and low for a monitor but nothing compares to the iMac display ( not even the 24" ACD that i tried, 2 of them for that matter! ) So i decided i want to get a 2nd 27" iMac and use it as a external monitor while using the power of the processor in the background..... I can either A) get a lower model then my current iMac and use that as my ( in the background rig ) or B) get a LOADED i7 iMac and use my current iMac as the ( in the background rig ) What i would do is run the iMac in dual display and use 1 iMac for streaming movies, encoding movies, etc, etc in the background as i use the display for my other iMac ( ok that sounds confusing ) anyways... to add a 256 SSD and a 1TB HD is 750.00!!! That is a MASSIVE upgrade! Would i really benefit from a SSD upgrade in my situation? Is the 600.00 SSD REALLY a upgrade that will last alonggggggggggggggg time? The more and more i think about 600.00 for 256gb of storage the more my stomach turns.... but the more and more i picture a iMac running off a SSD drive the more and more i want it!!!!!!!!!!!!
