    The rest of the iMac stock is named: MC812-14.
    Does this indicate a 'special' Mac? Or it is just a new model number?
    Who knows...
    Also, could someone who knows a lot about graphics cards give me a run down on the 6970M? Is it alright?

    Thanks.

    It means you need to wait a few hours and stop guessing.

    Hmm... looking at all the recent MacBook Pro model numbers and iMacs, they have all begun with an MC, so unless they are offering a separate model that needs that "D" designation, I don't know - a higher-res option/matte/etc.?

    According to Notebook Check, the 6970M is ranked #9, with only two other AMD cards scoring higher (and one is in fact a Crossfire version of it).

    When you add in desktop cards, it is ranked #17. Comparatively, through PassMark, it is ranked #13 (which also includes desktop cards). So it certainly looks powerful.

    Last year's most powerful iMac card (the Mobility Radeon HD 5850) is ranked down at #91 through PassMark and #61 on Notebook Check.

    Thanks for the info about the graphics cards.

    You've got me thinking about the MD063 iMac now. I wonder what it will be?

    Shouldn't be too much longer (it has already been 2.5 hours) and they like to get the updates online by 9AM EST, so about another hour at the most.

    My 17" MBP is model # MD036LL/A.

    It has a matte screen. Here's to hoping. :)

    Wow. Now I'm a little worried.
    I hope you can upgrade to 3.4GHz QC on the 27" Glossy.
    Nothing against Matte, I just prefer glossy.

    I´m confused about that one too. Having a unique model number MD instead of MC

    I think it´s something about the display. Higher resolution (2560x1600 maybe?)
    It´s a bit awkward if :apple: put matte display as the ONLY option for hi-end, because glossy looks nice ..

    Yeah glossy is annoying in lighter room, but admit it .. it looks sexy and yes, you get glass panel instead of plastic like matte LCDs today
