Hi first post so be gentle. Lol I had to get rid of my macs back in June for financial reasons, but things have taken care of themselves and Ill be getting a new computer, iMac, in mid Feb. I am without a computer now. Anyway, I want to get the BTO 27 inch 3.4 i7 with the 2 g video card but after being without a computer I so dont want to wait for it to ship. So Im trying to talk myself into the 3.1 stock i5 27 inch iMac. It will be for only personal use a little photo editing with aperture and getting my feet wet with final cut. My main reason for wanting the i7 with the upgraded video card is for World of Warcraft and maybe the new Star Wars MMO via boot camp. I really want to have the settings pretty high and not suffer lag when raiding in WoW. If there will be a difference that is worth waiting the week or so then so be it, but if it isnt worth the wait and cash Ill walk in my Apple store and walk out with a new computer. I know that the refresh is coming but I really cant wait a few months when I dont have a computer and Im still not convinced that it will be a huge difference. So what would you guys do if you were me? Thanks.
