    i really like my new 27" i3. i bought a 16g ipad at the same time. i have two days left on my "14 day return" i am not sure if i should return both and get a bigger 27". i have already pushed the i3 to max a few times encoding a dvd and other work. am i just being greedy?????

    a computer is a 4-6 year purchase. You seem unhappy, return it for the bigger and better

    that's what i am thinking. i could care less about the ipad at the moment not using it as much as i thought i might. i just hate being wishy washy yet it is a big investment rather a lengthy amount of time before the next major mac overhaul on my end.

    Its kinda like dating a girl. You basically want the hottest girl for the longest period of time... and it doesnt matter how much you hafta spend on her. The extra cash is worth it.

    The 27 is an amazing computer, and its really worth the extra money. Its a good investment which will have high retail value further on few the years

    Really? You keep a computer for 4-6 years? That's impressive.

    The $170 in re-stocking you'd pay would be enough for me not to return it.

    it was worth it to me. my last computer was a pc that i have had/still have for 5 years now. it was mid-range when i bought it and still does what my wife and kids need it to do, so i do keep for along time. my brothers both have mac laptops that are pushing 8 years that they still swear by so i made the jump
