  • iMac Update.. Top of the range i5 Quad's instead of i7 quads.. ?!?!

    Sometimes I don't get Apple..

    They updated their Macbook Pro's lappies to i7's but then made the i7 iMac's an upgrade option It's almost like they back tracked to i5 quads...

    I agree that an i7 quad in the iMac 21.5" config is a totally attractive item, but it seems that offering the i7 as an upgrade option in ALL the iMac's (yes, including the 27" top of the range iMac) seems to devalue the iMac range overall.. Maybe they think that offering the i7 as an upgrade is offering the lower end user some sort of discount, but I can't help but feel they're going to lag behind by offering a mid range upgrade to people that see the iMac as a Pro computer..

    i7 iMacs please and spare on the upgrade prices. They should be the basic spec's for the iMac now..

    I agree. It makes you wonder what they're doing.
    I'm just glad I bough a 2.93ghz i7 quad core imac when they were still available.
    (actually you can still get them refurbed from apple)

      The 27" one huh? I love the 27" but there is something 'right' about the 21.5 for me. Especially sitting that close.

        I bought it because I was switching from a dual monitor setup. I need to be able to put up several documents at the same time and it works wonderfully for that. As far as sitting close. Just dont sit that close I guess.

          Agreed but you have to remember the vast majority of users dont process the huge amount of data we do and their machines will be idling 99.997% of the time while they're doing email and web surfing.

          ....plus there may be limitations in the number of available i7's to put one in every box.

            Sure. The problem for me is that the entry price for an i7 iMac in the Uk is over £1400.. The 15" Macbook Pro i7 is only slightly more.. Their pricing seems odd to me.

            In fact, if you want an i7 in an iMac you HAVE to upgrade in the online store. You can't buy them over the counter any more which I think is wrong..

                Yeah. Interesting that it's one of their older models. I don't quite know what they're up to. I think i'll wait for all i7 quads before I throw my cash at one..
