Mine had a little flickering in the beginning but solved with software update, has a tiny bit of light leaking from the bottom but only visible on a black screen and most people dont even notice it

Well they're usually on laptops so it is useful if you dont have a mouse you want to plug in... desktops always have mice, I really dont understand it

bought an iMac on Saturday, and today they launched a new iMac!

uggggg... Not sure where to post this..

But just my luck... I bought an iMac last Saturday and today they launched a new one with faster processor and better graphics card!

So my receipt said I can return within 14 days with a 10% restocking fee!! UGGGG!!

Does anybody have any experience in this? Is there an exception to that rule, since they launched this 3 days after I bought???? :( :(

Just return it, they really should have told you in store, that there was a new model coming.

I am a bit unhappy with the GPUs

ATI Radeon HD 4670 with 256MB of GDDR3 SDRAM
ATI Radeon HD 5670 with 512MB of GDDR3 SDRAM
ATI Radeon HD 5750 with 1GB of GDDR5 SDRAM

Only?

It would have been nice if they offered at least a the following

ATI Radeon HD 5850 0.5GB
ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB
ATI Radeon HD 5970 2GB

Would it had killed them to make the memory DIMMs instead of SODIMMs?

Performance wise, there isn't much of a bump, but it looks better on paper :)

With each core there is the 'potential' for more work to be done. Imagine people are standing in line at the movie concession-stand (the CPU) - the people represent your software while the register(s) represent the cores. The more registers (cores) you have open the more people (software) can be served and sent on their way. Some computers (Mac Pro) have two concession-stands, each with multiple registers. That's how the Core2Quad and Core2Duo's work. The i series (i3/i7) processors add one more level to this and open 'virtual' cores. In this analogy, you could think of them as those self serve registers. Some software can see all the cores (registers) while others cannot. However, even though some software cannot see every register, the operating system can redirect software (people) to other registers (cores) while the software that cannot see the added cores only use the first one or two registers. So, more often than not, multiple core CPU's can out perform much faster dual core CPUs. Faster dual core's however shine when people are not running several programs at the same time (also called multitasking). That's why games and office productivity software runs equally fast on dual or quad cpus while audio, photo, video and 3d software do much better on quad/dual-quad systems. Hope that makes scenes.




That is the best explanation of multi core processors I think I have ever seen :cool::cool:

Also nice to see the iMac line maturing into something more functional.
The addition of a second drive makes them must better suited to photography. Although they still suffer from a lot of compromises against a proper desktop.

Seriously considering the 21.5 i5 - i assume it will be enough for photography.27 is big way big - went to see one last night. im on a single core intel imac 20 with 2gb, so I assume ill notice a difference.....

27 monitors are awesome. When you zoom into to 100% you can see so much of your photo.

I'm waiting (sorta) for the Macbook Air processor to be updated (only need a small/light notebook as I do all my work on Mac pros).

Is there a "restocking" fee, involved?

Thanks.

So I googled this and apparently, apple's official rule is the 14day return with 10% restocking. However, some people were given the opportunity to upgrade within 30 days, no restocking free.. Store manager discretion, so I guess I have to talk to the manager if they give me a hard time!!
