    Specs:

    Ordered a New 21.5" iMac Yesterday
    I went back and forth with getting a refurbished or the new model, but ultimately went with a new one. Bumped up the RAM because we'll be using a VM, architect design app, and Aperture on occasion. I think 2.7 GHz will be sufficient - everything we're doing with those apps is purely for fun. Nothing on the professional level. Plus I had to keep within a budget, so I couldn't max everything out.

    Looks like it could take 2 - 3 weeks to get here, but I'm hoping it's a little sooner than that.

    64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

    I couldn't wait. I ordered mine online the day they were released on the website. Look at the shipping date Jan 2. >_>" I was like no thanks. Waited two weeks and called my nearest Apple store asking if they had any of the new 27" iMacs in. They said they had two. Drove like a maniac to the store and got myself the last one.

    Interesting your AppleCare protection charge of $169.00. We poor mugs Down Under are charged $268.00 with the AU dollar being some 5% over the US dollar.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Very Nice! I'm amazed at how thin they are!

    My 27 inch iMac was out for delivery yesterday, a full two days early. Since no one was home they didn't leave it (which is good!). My wife's going to leave the pre-signed paperwork on the door and a neighbor will hold it until she gets home.

    You can't tell from his picture, but the box my wife's new iMac came in was tapered at the top so as to be smaller than the bottom of the box.
