Hi there. Despite hearing the facts that a refresh is soon (March, April bah.) I pulled the trigger and ordered a 27" i7 iMac. This is my first Mac. After reading the news about thunderbolt, I know it will be used a lot in the future, but for now, we only see devices using Firewire and USB. Here are some reason I decided to get one now, and not wait: 1- Gaming? I have a PC/ other consoles 2- CPU: I guess it would last a few years since its an i7 3- New FaceTime HD camera? Don't think I'll use it that much. 4- Bluray? Not a chance IMO, Apple wants your credit card used at the iTunes store. 5- HDMI input? Not needed. 6- Im in Kuwait, no i7, highest model available here is the i5, priced at 2700$ Now of course since I already did purchase, some may say why would you want comments if you already made your mind. Well, I just would like to know your inputs Cheers!
