    no I have a c2d 3.06 27 inch. The hdd is sata II and it is trapped pretty much.

    Hopefully the 2011 iMac's will have a T-Bolt connection that allows a booting external drive like this

    if this comes true our iMacs will be fully out of date.

    yeah I have 23 months on my imac apple care. I grabbed my iMac last feb 2010. I use it for my kitchen tv/dvr/computer it is wall mounted. I am not sure what to do sell when the 2011 comes out or hold on for a while.

    Because we all know we need quad cores and 8GB of RAM to watch streaming TV and view recipes

    Yes it will. My Mac Pro is SATA II and utilizes the full speeds of an SSD. Some people have even set up x2 SSD's in RAID0 to achieve twice the speed.
