I had the chance to buy an iMac (top of the range one for half price...) but I didn't rush to do so.

 

The current machine is 522 days old like you say.  The current design runs very hot.  The HDs take alot of hammer.  I've certainly had problems.  You wouldn't put keep your hands on the top left side of an iMac while it's running even a moderate game for long.

 

We're due 8 gigs of ram and 2 gig gpus.  Cooler running design.  Quad core across the board.  i7 as standard and dropping the i5 to the entry level.  

 

...and I'd like to see Retina.  Such that it will be.

 

...and solid state drives are dropping in price.  Should be standard in the top model at least.

 

Lemon Bon Bon.

You know, for a company that specializes in the video-graphics market, you'd think that they would offer top-of-the-line GPUs...

 

WITH THE NEW MAC PRO THEY FINALLY DID!  (But you bend over for it.)

I have a current 27" i7 and it doesn't run hot, even when rendering video at 80-90% CPU for an hour.

 

I do keep my room at a nice 23°C, though.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

You regard that as cool?  Super warm for me at this time of year.  In celsius terms, I keep it at 23.33 in the summer, and in the winter 20 during the day and 17.8 at night.

It won't be cool enough for me until we get a processor that operates at about 10°C or less.

So... I'm under the impression that store employees don't know anything, but I was in the other day, and was asked if I could be helped, and I basically said that I was wanting an iMac but was waiting for when new ones come out. He then said that they were told that mid October was when they were going to get updated.

Who knows.
