    if your in Boston go to microcenter you get this exact computer brand spanking new for $1000. Or if you can find an open box for $950 !!!! I got mine in April I think open box but brand spanking new for $950. It was probably a better experience than the first time I saw a girls naughty parts :D

    seems like a good buy. Which iMac did you have before?

    That's good; I opted for the new one with the education discount but it still comes out to around the same price; you'll love the new machine.

    You will love it, although I bought a brand new one for $1099 at the Apple store with the education discount - that may not still be available though, I bought mine in mid-August.

    It's well worth shelling out for the extra 4GB RAM via Crucial.com or somebody like that - far cheaper than paying for the extra RAM from Apple. The upgrade to 8GB made a noticable difference, especially with Lion.

    Enjoy your new toy! :)
