    I wasn't expecting the quad-core on the base iMac. Loved that so much that I called and asked if I could swap my recent 17-day old iMac purchase and the guy did. AWESOME!!!!

    Thumbs up on the hardware, just what I was hoping for.

    Thumbs down on the 4 - 6 week wait for the SSD option.

    Well you have the best CPU available and the best GPU they could have put in the imac. So i'm not sure how anyone could give it a thumbs down.

    I put my money where my mouth is, I said if they put in 69x0 series GPU i'd buy one and I did.

    i think its a good refresh. I like the current design. I just wish the hard drive was easily accessible so it could be swapped.

    Thumbs up if after waiting 6 weeks you get a OS Lion upgrade.

    Thumps up or thumbs up, if waiting 4-6 weeks before ordering nets a free ipod instead of clicking now and waiting.

    Thumbs up, even though I'm not in a market for an iMac (but I do have a 2010 model I sometimes use at home). Graphics cards are a good sign. Maybe you can stick them in the MBPs too, Apple?

    +1. This is really the only thing keeping me from ever owning an iMac. I want to quickly and easily get in there to swap my drive out if I want to upgrade it or even more importantly in case of drive failure. This is why I love the MacBook Pro.

    All that said, congrats all you iMac folks, looks like you scored big today! If I was an iMac guy I'd be placing my order for that 3.4GHz i7 right now!

    Neither, how about a thumbs up ;) Anyway, I'm surprised that Apple stuck two ThunderBolt ports on the 27".

    Two Thumbs Up! I am surprised the base 21.5" received a quad-core processor. The extra Thunderbolt connector for the 27" is a sign of the future.
