    My 24" 2.8 iMac is working fine, but that does not stop me from wanting the new 27". With the issues being tossed around on the new 27", I think I'll wait for Rev 2 before making the upgrade. It's not a problem if it takes Apple 6 months to get there. Anyone else doing the same?

    I don't know about you but I like having the latest and greatest. I think if you wait too long you'll be buying a machine that will be updated 3 months later. I personally hate it when that happens (even though its inevitable, eventually).

    Well, I am, but not because the issues some are reporting. I'm saving up for one while my current 24" is doing what it's suppose to reasonably well. I expect to buy one in half a year or so, so by then I will see if there's an update or one expected.

    If you already have a fully working computer which does everything you want it to do, there's no reason to update. Of course, having the newest and coolest is nice but it will cost you a lot money.

    When I saw those 27" iMacs on Apple's site, I was going to sell my current iMac but then I realized that my current iMac does whatever I want and when I bought it, I built it for years and bought AppleCare as well. If I know sell this, I would lose about 800€ which is A LOT money.

    Sooner than later, those new iMacs will be old again.

    I will be holding onto my 20" for quite some time. It works great and I may upgrade someday when there is a significant tech upgrade in the 21.5". 27 is just too big for me.

    Of course if you have money and doesn't hurt you to lose out about 1 grand, than yeah people will upgrade.
