I had never read this thread before so ended up on the first page when I viewed it, what a contrast 10 years in technology makes:

My new 27-inch iMac with Fusion Drive. Ordered an additional 8 GB of memory from Crucial. The one on the left had a poorly installed LCD panel and suffered from extensive backlight bleeding. Returned it to Apple.

Ordered my 27inch iMac yesterday....can safely say I'm like a giddy little child!

 

  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX780M 4GB GDDR5
  • 3.5GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
  • 16GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM-2X8GB
  • 1TB Fusion Drive

 

Two questions..

 

I see so many iMacs on here with external speakers, are the internal speakers not that good?

and would you recommend buying another 16gb from Cruical or would 16gb be good enough for video editing, gaming and graphic design?

Your room looks similar to my office. Black accent wall with grey walls. I love the overhead LEDs, might have to try to do that. 

 

Strange, as of late I've had issues with Apple quality. I had to return my 13 inch rMBP Haswell because the screen had a cluster of white dead pixels. A Retina iPad Mini had a dark shadow spot as well. They were excellent at exchanges, it just seems odd.

^ That is clean man, what a beautifully modern setup!

 

 

I still have my:

 

13" Macbook Pro (late 2011)

intel core i5 2.3ghz

8GB DDR3-1333

120gb Crucial M4 SSD

750gb WD Caviar Black (in place of optical drive)

OS X 10.9.1

 

Still going strong. I love modding this machine, but I don't know where to go from here after upgrading to an SSD and removing the optical drive for another 750gb of storage.
