So I’m a newbie to this site, but I’ve been reading here for months. I had planned on getting a new computer for my birthday for casual family usage. My birthday was 3/19! I ordered the new iMac that day (I had been waiting since I knew the iMac was due for a refresh). However, after reading a thread about the different specs for educators (I’m a teacher), I realized it didn’t make sense to go with the configuration I had: 27 base CPU with extra 8gb of RAM and 512 SSD. So I canceled the order and got the 27inch high end with i5 processor and 580 GPU. I hope it’s not hot. The only gaming we might do is the City Skylines since I was a big fan of the SimCity line. Based on specs, it should be able to run that. The price tag was already high so I can’t justify the additional GPU for a home computer. My previous computer is a 2010 13 inch MacBook PRO. I wanted to get another laptop, but these specs are much better for the price and I hardly ever move my computer.as per the title, if you’ve ordered a new iMac, when is it coming?
Also when can we expect to start seeing tear downs, cpu benchmarks and testing on the thermals?
Anyone have any info?
