I sold my 2009 imac 27" a few months ago and have been using a mac mini for a few months with a 17" LCD. It's been killing me. I've been waiting for a deal to come up on something newer, but I don't want one of the newer ones because I want to keep the ability to run Snow Leopard. Today I picked up a brand new top end 27" (3.1GHz Quad-Core i5) for $1650 shipped. Overnighted it from Amazon warehouse, should be here tomorrow. I know i'll get some pangs of buyer's remorse when the new iMac comes out in a month, but...It won't run Snow Leopard.
