I've been holding off buying a new iMac due to the upcoming refresh. But I saw something in another thread that go me thinking. What are the odds that the upcoming iMacs will still have FireWire 800 port? I currently have two FW 800 drives that I plan to continue using. I'm not even sure I should be waiting. The 10-15% bump in performance is negligible to me and I don't own any USB 3.0 devices and don't have any plans to buy any at this point. The only thing I was hoping for was for a less expensive SSD option or a better performing SSD for the same price. Personally I don't think the SSD is going to come down in price given that it's a special order item and must be ordered at time of purchase. Push came to shove its also a lot easier to replace an SSD if you order the iMac with the upgrade, so if I really want better performance I can always upgrade it myself later on. Any thoughts and suggestions are welcome!! B.
