    I've been using an iMac since 2004 and love it, but it's time for something new.

    I went onto Mac's website and saw the iMac 27-inch, which looks awesome for my needs (and then some!) but before I commit to spending that much I want to tap into OT's MacShack braintrust to see if there's anything I need to know - i.e. there's a newer, cheaper version coming out next month, or something obvious like that a non-techie like me wouldn't know about.

    Also, are there any promotions for the iMac 27-inch? They were giving away iPod Touch to students a while back, but it looks like that's over... anything else?

    Thanks :bigthumb:

    I just bought a 27" i7 imac. I used the student discount then paid for it through the discover mall to get 5% back. Student discount was ~$120 off including the i7 upgrade discount and ~110 back via discover.

    I have never bought a mac from a retailer other than Apple.

    What's the i7 upgrade discount? Is that for going up to a better processor?

    the i7 upgrade was $200 i think, but the student discount took $20 off that.

    Pulled the trigger on the iMac 21.5" and now I'm angry that I wasted so much time before buying it. Insanely awesome fast. Screen is ...well I dont have the adjectives to describe how much I love this machine.
