    Hi all,

    I've got a mid 2010 iMac 3.2 GHz Intel Core i3 with 8GB ram and ATI Radeon HD 5670 512 MB

    It's been a great machine but wished I had a I5 or even I7 CPU sometimes.

    I've held off buying anything until the 2012 iMac. Now its nearly here I don't know if I really need it

    I'm looking forward to the new SimCity game mainly, I don't want my current iMac to ruin the gameplay and graphics.

    Would the new iMac 21.5" higher range version with 8GB or even 16GB and fusion drive be a massive jump.

    I can see the fusion drive adding another £200 and the extra Ram because the 21.5" isn't upgradable another £160

    This would make the 21.5" system about £1500, quite a lot of money. I really don't fancy the 27", screen is too big I feel.

    The other option I was looking at was maybe a 13" air, anyone know much about the HD4000 graphics ? Any good for light gaming ?

    Thanks all

    You mean £1600.

    £1,249 + £200 + £160 = £1609

    I'd expect the fusion drive to cost even more than £200 knowing Apple.
