I just bought an imac 27" 3.2/8gb/1tb hdd for ....... $1511.xx tonight at best buy. They have them on sale for 1679, and I happened to have a 10% movers coupon with me. I sold my 2011 MacBook Pro tonight, and I'm very excited to get the imac home. I know a BTO would have been ideal, but I saved so much $$& this way. The ram I plan to upgrade myself even if I bought it BTO. The hard drive is replaceable with an ssd, and I plan to throw a 500 gb Samsung 840 in there. My fiancé and I aren't power users, so I am not worried about the processor. It's still a quad core i5. We also have a MBA each for work.
