I know everyone hate's when these posts pop up.. so I'm sorry for contributing to it, but I wanted some trusted second opinions. I have been holding out for this refresh to get my very first iMac. Now that's they are out I'm having some second thoughts. Since I wanted the 1gb video card I was forced to look at the 3.1ghz i5 w/ Radeon 6970m. Before the refresh I figured a 1gb card would be in (or available) in the base 27" model... as I didn't really want to spend $2000. Now I've noticed Apple has refurbished 27" 2.93ghz i7's with a 1gb Radeon 5750 for $1569(Cdn). The computers main tasks will be running Illustrator, Fireworks, Dreamweaver etc. As well as eventually some video editing through adobe after effects and maybe Final Cut. Game playing will be minimal as I use my xbox for that, but Portal 2 and Diablo 3 would probably make their way on to the machine. I've been looking at benchmarks for cpu's and gpu's.. but for $400 it doesn't look like I will notice much of a difference. Plus from what I read the 2010's are easier to add a SSD yourself, so the money I save would go into that. I don't care about thunderbolt ports, so that isn't of interest to me. I'm purely looking at machine performance and I know it will be faster... I'm just wonder will the 2010 build be something I'll be kicking myself in the ass over because of something like the gpu?
