"Simply great"on by paulcgraves
Pros Great screen - can really handle two full pages at the same time. Very fast. Handbrake runs very smoothly in 64 bit mode, riping up to 145 fps.
Cons Blue-ray would have been nice, but I don't miss it yet. I would like to have a larger wireless keyboard option.
Summary Best computer I have every owned or worked on. I even like the mouse after a few days of using it. Very fast. Very slick. Very nice.
"Best iMac Ever"on by windowsvsmac
Pros This is unbelievable.. everything is totally intense.
Cons there aren't any I've encountered.
Summary Best iMac ever.
Pros 27in LED screen, 2560x1440 Res, DDR3. OS X and iLife. Closed optimized hardware/software system. Retains Resell value. Boot Camp support for Windows 7 (which is also a good OS). BTW World of Warcraft plays better on a Mac
Cons Video Card Cannot be Upgraded ever. No blu-ray support, no HDMI output, No E-Sata support.
Summary Worth ever penny, Beautiful screen and maximized system. Everything you will need is included, but externally missing some connections that are nice to have, but are not Necessary. Blu-Ray...Would of been nice but again not Necessary. If your a Digiatal consumer then you will be totally happy with owning an iMac... iTunes store for Videos/Music/TV shows/books and now video Games thru Steam :DExcellent Computer, haven't had any problems with it. I haven't had any reason to upgrade the memory of this computer...it runs so fast with just 4GB of Memory amazing.

"Great machine"on by Mrmarshii
Pros Very fast good for multitasking. resolution is beyond fantastic.
Cons It gets really hot, like burning your hand hot. fans are extremely weak and mine flickers a lot.
Summary I have the 27" quad core i7 8g RAM 4x2 2TB memory, and I got this from the apple store on 4/26/10.
Pros The monitor is huge and image is crisp. Processor is super fast. Mac OS X is intuitive and responsive. I use mostly for paper writing and research - having the extra screen real estate has been incredibly helpful.
Cons What's not to like?!
Summary I am a Mac fan and have been for years but this is the first time I have purchased a top of the line machine. It was well worth the investment as I was able to score a refurbished machine at a substantial discount through the Apple Online Store.
Although I had initially intended to purchase a lower-level model, a visit to Best Buy to test drive the machine's quickly changed my mind. First of all, it is impossible to walk past this machine in a store and not want to touch it.. and once that happens, all thoughts of its little sister are washed from your head. In fact, I only used the 21.5" machine because that is the unit that had the wireless input devices. Once I touched the 27-inch, I was done.. and that was the base unit. Getting the Quad Core i5 up and running at home was incredible!
Speaking of those - the new touch mouse is a dream. feels great in the hand.. looks great. One complaint is that it is kinda "scratchy" on most standard surfaces. Looking for a solution to that minor issue. Doesn't seem like a traditional mouse pad will resolve it but it could be just that simple.
This machine makes my jaw drop at how responsive it is, how crisp the images are, even the built-in sound on this iMac is great (although I use external speakers w/ a sub woofer).
The 27-inch iMac Quad Core i5 is well worth the investment especially if you can find a refurbished unit. DO IT! You know you want to.
