Well I took the pludge. Upgraded from my eMac to the intel iMac. It was faith. Compusa had the zero interest for 18 months... so I knew it had to be lol. It is stock... probably going to upgrade the ram. I am so amazed at how huge and superbright this screen is. I got a free epson all in one (after rebates) too. Was smart this time... took out applecare so if any thing happens to the display I'm not screwed. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase. This computer should last me a very long time.
