    Hi All,

    Long time reader, first time poster. Just wanted to thank everyone on here for their constant, competing and convincing opinions on everything Mac. I just purchased a 27 inch iMac (i7 3.4, 6970M 1GB, 4GB RAM) after a significant amount of research and patient waiting on the refresh. This site was an invaluable source of information, so I figured I would tell you guys to keep up the good work!

    Cheers,

    Acote

    I don't doubt it. I have no plans on taking this site off my bookmarks.

    Funny I just pulled the trigger too on a 27. I, like the OP, lurk here on the forums, gleaning information here and there.

    I had settled on a Maingear shift rig to game and was agonising over a display but decided that I would stay with Apple and that gizzards were enough to satisfy my gaming needs. My wife and I already own MBP's, in fact I have done since 2004. I just couldnt bring myself to go back to that dark, unstable MS place.

    System details below - got my confimation email tonight, it should ship to me before May 20.

    With the following configuration:
    • PROCESSOR 065-0250 3.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
    • MEMORY 065-0559 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB
    • HARD DRIVE 065-0255 1TB Serial ATA Drive
    • GRAPHICS 065-0312 AMD Radeon HD 6970M 2GB GDDR5

    I'd be high fiving most of you right now if you were in the room. Cheers.

    I, like the OP, lurk the forums to educate myself. I also just pulled the trigger on the base model 21.5" unit, that should be here in a few days. This is my first ever Mac so this will be a learning curve for me. I do have one question though. I see it comes with 4gb of ram. Do you think that will be suffice. I don't do any PC gaming and will mainly use it for photo editing and movie editing using the included iPhoto & iMovie software. Other than that my 5yr old might visit some educational/gaming sites he's learned about. Should I double it 8gb or do you guys think 4gb will be enough?
