Well, I just got everything setup for the new work area/desk. I am the proud owner of two 27" iMacs. One is the Core i5 and other is the Core i7. I will mainly be using the Core i7 for 1080p video encoding an the Core i5 will be day to day and photos. I have 16GB of RAM on the way for the Core i7 and the Core i5 will be at 8GB soon enough. Both have the crummy Seagate 1TB...both are quiet for now though.
