I'll try to make this as specific as possible so that I can hear everyones opinion. My personal setup: - iMac 27 [Late 2009] - i5 2.66Ghz - 16GB RAM - 1TB 7200RPM HDD -- Basically all stock except the RAM I am thinking of purchasing a 120GB SSD for my OS and applications alone, I have heard this is the most substantial upgrade that can be done to any computer right now. So what do you guys think? Should I throw that 120GB SSD in my current iMac and then sell it later when Ivy Bridge comes out or should I simply wait for Q2 of 2012? [By the way, I have a $75 GC to amazon that will bring the price down of a SSD] Also, I thought I would throw this out there.. A friend is willing to sell me his iMac [i7 2.93Ghz, 12GB of RAM, stock, ect] for $1600. I have offers for my current iMac at $1400, so I will technically only be paying $200 for the processor and video card bump. Most people this wouldn't be too important, but I do a ton of video editing and it is extremely important to me. So basically here are my options.. 1. Upgrade my current iMac with the SSD and sell it in Q2 2012. 2. Do nothing and save some more money for Q2 2012. 3. Buy my friends iMac and install an SSD in that and pass on Ivy Bridge.
