Asking a question like this on Neowin is like asking a Fox News focus group if you should vote for Obama.

Mac forum tho... so we should be doing forum bans/warnings when people come here for useless posts/trolling. Needs to stop, or why bother posting here?

The new iMac is fine, unless you are forced for space / price reasons to get 21.5", which is worse than 2011 version.
  • Slower HDD
  • Soldered RAM at Apple's Prices
  • Most other specs too similar to before

Going to be getting myself a 27" base model. 8Gb memory should be more than enough for my needs, only thing I would like would be more video memory for the video card. 512 is a bit on the low side considering the high resolution of the screen. Besides that it will be a great upgrade from my older 27" 2009 model

Yep, went ahead and pulled the trigger, same specs. Now the fun part at selling my old machine!

So why bother creating a thread to ask for advice when you just went ahead and bought it anyway less than a day later?
