iMac

I picked up a new 27" iMac a couple weeks ago when B&H dropped the price of the previous generation iMac by $300. Specifically, I bought the 3.2GHz Core i5 unit with a nVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 1GB GPU. I paired the iMac with a HP ZR2740w 27" IPS display.

As always Eric, I enjoyed reading your post. It was good to see how you handled this as I'll be in this market soon for a desktop and dual monitor. Thanks!

Thank you for the review. Can you explain why you chose the model you did versus the Haswell chip 27 inch version for $1630? Also how difficult is it to install the extra RAM? Thanks.

Well crap. The price has dropped since I bought mine . . . and now you have made me sad. So, if you're in the market, that's a heckuva deal on the Haswell version.

The RAM install is simple. It takes less than 5 minutes with no tools. Just pop the back panel off that covers the RAM slots, move one of the original RAM units up a slot and put your two new RAM units adjacent to one another. Press the panel back on and you're done.
