The i7 is AMAZING. Granted I've not compared it to an iMac with the i5, but I have the exact processor you're talking about, and it literally screams with anything I do. I don't game much, though I have tried gaming on it, just to see what it could do, and it's impressive in every arena from games, to video editing and music production (the latter two I do fairly often).

Real world, day today, everything from email and browsing, to hard work, it's an excellent machine. Happy to answer any specifics I can for you. But like was said... Do the RAM/SSD yourself. it is MUCH cheaper. Just look at the upgrade RAM on a site like Crucial, and compare it to the RAM upgrade on Apple's site. Less than half the price if done yourself later....
