    Phenomenal I don't know why it took so long for me to switch to Mac but it was so worth it. Fell in love with the iPhone 4s in October (first iPhone ) and now think I'm a Mac convert for life now. Little bit of a learning curve but I'm a real quick learner.got the base model but will likely throw another 4gb of ram when I get around to
    It. I picked up the trackpad too I couldn't resist it
    In the store lol.now just have to learn some
    Shortcuts and I'll be all set.I'll be Looking forward to coming back for info,help,tips on here gotta get some
    Shut eye can't wait to play around with this new toy after work tomorrow ,thanks for reading goodnight!

    Thank you! I would definitely recommend you do. It's only 3 hours old only used it for a half hour tops lol can't get over how quick,bugless and how sharp the screen is after using a 10+ year old Sony vaio monitor lol #

    I got my 27in iMac a year or two ago. Love it still.

    Congrats on your purchase.

    ----------

    And the rumor for that keeps popping up. In any form the iMac he has will still be good for a while. They used a Vaio for 10 years.

    iMac 2011 is a damn fine machine, it's just as capable as today's machine, even more in some aspects.

    So I would say congratulation for your purchase. It's just I hope you get a bargain price. It's a 2011 machine, so the price should be lowered a little. Apple don't do this officially. Maybe a 3rd party reseller would be more flexible.

    The display on a laptop of 10+ years old cannot be compared to the display of the current iMac.

    Enjoy your brand-new iMac!

    at this point I would get last years imac at cheap refurb price if only they had usb 3. I was waiting for a mac pro and im tired of waiting but since I cant add hard drives at will to an imac usb3 will be very important.

    Made the same switch over a year ago and still enjoying the clean, quiet, efficient, spacious "new" feeling. Wait until you get onto Lion's desktops. Looking forward to MountIn Lion's notifications on my 27".

    Congrates to the opening post.

    It we get an update next week I don't think it will be a huge jump, I mean yes we should have Ivy Bridge CPUs and USB 3 but that's probably it apart from the usually other updates in spec. Just think MBP 2011 v 2012.

    I have an early 2005 G5 which is limited to 4GB of RAM. Runs pretty good, just restricted but some of the software updates that require Intel CPUs.

    I'm still holding out for the next iMac.

    The 2011 iMac is still very good. I just wouldn't get it now for the full retail price from 14 months ago.

    Agree w/ everyone. IMAC 27 is best computing form one can have at this point to get some serious work done(along w/ anything else you throw at it).

    Other devices are really a toy compare to imac 27. Congrat and now work on upgrading cheap ram and SSD!!!(yes, you can do it!!!) This thing is a rocket w/ SSD.

    I bought the 21.5 in March and really wish I would of gotten the 27.. it seemed too big in the store to me but after using the 21.5, I find myself running out of space.. I'm waiting for the refresh later this year and will be buying the BRAND NEW 27 :) and giving my 21.5 to my mom.

    Congrats! There won't be a new model next week. If I end up ordering a 2011 it would be with a really bad taste in my mouth. Paying for the maxed out BTO model would be a lot of money for old hardware :(

    congrats, If no new imac next week I will probably jump at the 2011 one as well as long as I can get it cheaper. If not cheaper then I am not sure haha. It would take a lot to push me to a PC but a PC is in the card deck, only 1 out of 52 though.

    iMacs are awesome. The 27" has a 2560 x 1440 resolution which usually costs over $1000 just for a monitor of that resolution, making it a great buy.

    I have the 21.5" and I can testify that I have never felt that it needs any more power in regards to the CPU or the GPU, especially after the 12GB RAM upgrade.

    I definitely recommend a RAM upgrade, it can do wonders for any Mac, almost as much as a SSD upgrade, but at a much more reasonable price :)
