Ordered new iMac

Well after much waiting I have ordered my new iMac.

In the end after much thinking I went for the 27″ model with the…

2.8GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with 8MB shared L3 cache; Turbo Boost dynamic performance up to 3.46GHz; Hyper-Threading for up to eight virtual cores


I also upped the RAM to 8GB.

I did consider getting the 2TB drive as I do use a lot of storage, however the upgrade was £187 and I know I can get two external drives for that. I current have 4 1TB drives so not too worried (and two of those are empty).

All of which means it should be a lot faster than my current iMac which is a Core 2 Duo and only has 2GB of RAM.

I had considered ordering a Mac mini to use with the iMac, but not sure how the display thingy is going to work, so going to test it with a MacBook Pro first. There is no hurry as Apple won’t deliver it until November… that I am guessing will be the end of November and not the beginning.

I did consider getting a slower one which I could get in three days, but in the end decided that going for the top model means I will feel it will last longer!
