I couldn't resist any longer. I finally ordered a 21.5" iMac with the i7 processor and 8 GB of RAM. I figure this should be enough RAM/Memory since all we do is surf the web and email. It should arrive next week and I'm very excited to play with it.

Congratulations with your new machine, I've got a early-2008 iMac back home and it still runs great, although a bit outdated (never upgraded the OS). Expect those things to hit 5+ years with no problem.

I'm not sure what Haswell is, but oh well. If i had waited a month for the Haswell, then 2 months later something else would have been out. You can never keep up with electronic technology.

I do think Caleb Williams comparison is hilarious and it is quite accurate I'm sure. I'm sure it will be able to handle way more than I will ever be able to throw at it.

My only question is, why on earth ddi you buy the 21.5 inch ? The only reason I can think of is to save the difference between the cost of the 21.5, and the 27 inch; after "making do" with a 20 in iMac for the last 8 years, I bought a 27 in. six months ago, and the difference in size between the two displays is unbelievable. And surfing the web and doing email?

4 GB of ram would have been "excessive" if that's all you do; If I was you, I would try very hard to change the order to a 27 inch; i7 processor and 8 GB ? Who knows, you may end up making good use of that performance over time, but now you're stuck with a small display FOREVER ! THAT'S the biggest reason to buy an iMac, IMHO.

You bring up a very good point Geezer.

Trust me, I wanted the 27", but the lady and I compromised because we are going to put the 21.5" where one of our laptops is and the 27" is just too big for that space. If I had put the 27" and put it in our home office, it would rarely have gotten used.

So, we went with the 21.5" that will be used nearly daily.

Hopefully, in time, I will get my 27" as well, even if it basically sits in the office to look pretty

Haswell will be of most benefit to laptops due to it's increased power saving performance. There will be negligable difference in a desktop computer such as the iMac. Also, the iMac's are not expected to receive an update until the end of 2013 / beginning of 2014.

Quoting Geezer (Reply 6):

8GB is the minimum amount of RAM that is available in the current iMac.

Quoting DFWHeavy (Reply 5):

I feel you have a great machine, but if you are mainly using it for email and surfing the web, you will notice much more of a difference in the fusion drive rather than the i7. For what you are doing, much of the i7 will be redundant. The fusion drive gives you close to the speed of an SSD with the same capacity as a HDD. Boot up times, opening application etc will be significantly faster with the fusion drive.

You're right about that; (NOW); but when I bought my 27 inch about 6 months ago, the "standard" amount of RAM was 4GB; not long after I bought my machine (with 4 GB), I bought 2 more 4GB RAM modules and stuck them in. so right now I have 12 GB. Right now, buying another 4GB would be very "cheap", but also "useless"......(with this connection)

Overall, with 6 months of usage to go by, by FAR the best part of this machine is the size of the display; I'm very "into" photography and artwork; with pictures, a 2X increase in size is a 4 (or even a 5X) increase in "impact"; something almost no one seems to think about when they buy a new computer.........(and which makes ALL the difference)......is the "quality" of your internet connection; mine just happens to be TERRIBLE, due to where we live, (out in the "boonies")

A satellite connection is our ONLY option, and it's NOT a great option; (in fact, it SUCKS !)

Something else.....I had Jaguar on my old machine; Lion on this new one; if I could, I would gladly transfer the Jaguar from the old iMac into this one, and send "the lion" out with the trash ! I can't STAND it ! It came with Safari "installed"; I'm not "real big" on Safari, so I downloaded Chrome; I'm now "much less big" on Chrome, so just as soon as I can think to do it, I'm going to download the latest flavor of Firefox;

Oh......about the "size" of the display........our computer "desk" (or what ever you want to call this piece of crap) has an "opening" that's exactly 25 3/8 inches wide; the iMac is EXACTLY 25 5/8 inches wide ! (so it does NOT quite "fit" in the damned "opening") ! Fortunately for me, I just happen to have almost a thousand board feet of well-dried white oak lumber "on hand", all of the necessary power tools needed, and I'm a pretty fair wood worker, ( even if I do waste much of my time on-line, "dealing" with air-heads, rather than building a beautiful new computer desk out of quartered white oak, (so I can "donate" this piece of "saw-dust" furniture to Goodwill).

Trust me..........even if you have to keep in the back yard in a tent.........get the 27 inch iMac ! (you'll be VERY glad you did !)

I agree, I have a a pretty much maxed out late 2012 iMac - 27", 24GB RAM, i7, 1TB Fusion Drive and 680MX. The 21.5" looks tiny now in comparison.

Don't be put off by the initial size of the 27", you will very quickly become used to it! It's the perfect size.

Again, I would definitely choose the Fusion Drive over the i7, as for your usage DFWHeavy, it will be mostly redundant and that's a lot of money to spend on something that won't benefit you.

Well I was crazy about my 27" iMac I bought about 2 yrs ago well last week I went to turn it on and nothing. Just like it is unplugged. After checking all the usual suspects it is down to 2 possible problems either the power supply or the logic board. I am gambling on a power supply which is around $125 and looking at the video it looks not to hard to change..However, if it is a logic board I am hosed. They go for $1500+. After a google search I find out this is far from an isolated problem. I would think Apple computers would have a better reliablity than this. Especially after what I paid for it.

The problem with Macs is that people start doing a bit more with them - especially since Apple puts iLife in for free.

iPhoto is a good start for doing more, then comes an app for "working" on a picture a bit - especially the old family pictures that can be scanned in. Pixelmator is highly rated and cheaper than PhotoShop Elements and there is a mountain of photo related apps on the AppStore.

The AppStore (the little blue button on the dock with an "A" in it) is a great place to start looking at different ideas. CHeck out the Categories and look at interesting areas.

I bought a G5 iMac the day it was announced - actually at 6:30 in the morning as i had been waiting 7 months for it to be announced. The 20 was the largest display and it took a while for me to get used to it.

These days I'm looking at the 27".

When it comes to components I consider the iMacs to be similar and always buy AppleCare to extend the warranty. Clunky desktop boxes are far cheaper to repair, but I even bought an extended warranty for them when I was using Dells.

It can also just be a simple defect of the power push button. Or even just a defective cable ( I guess you've already checked the power outlet).

Crucially, though, you did not pay for Apple Care, which would have covered your machine for 3 years.

Reliability is always only a statistical matter. It is not determined by when a defect occurs, but how often on average. A single defect does not imply anything about the reliability of a product on the whole.

My own iMac (27", late 2009) had developed a subtle display issue more than two years in; I called it in, documented it with photos and a video and when the replacement panel arrived at my local service point (a non-Apple store) I brought it in and waited at a nearby café while the panel was switched out. The whole thing took about an hour at no additional cost and effectively saved me more than the combined cost of Apple Care on all my Apple gear over the years.

As things are now, somebody with competence on computer repairs and with access to the official maintenance manual for your particular model should have a look at the machine. Recent iMacs have a bunch of LED indicators on the main board which can aid in locating the cause of a defect (including, of course, the absence of power even in off/standby).

Didn't you buy "Applecare" for it ? I bought 24 month Applecare when I bought my 20 inch iMac, and the thing never missed a beat for 8 years ! I'm pretty sure it's the logic board that went out, rather than the power supply;

When I bought my 27 inch, I paid for 36 month. So far, the one thing that stands WAY above everything else, is the 27in display ! I will NEVER have a smaller screen than this again !

My friend who owns a sign business uses a huge Vizio LCD TV for a display for two dinky PC's that he uses for designing signs with a $5,300 app. called "Flexi Sign Pro"; it makes my 27 in iMac look like a smartphone by comparison; it's really perfect for what he uses it for, but it wouldn't be worth 15 cents for what I use my iMac for, 85% of the time, which is looking at and editing photos. The iMac display is easily 15 times better than any TV display. I seriously doubt if I'll ever increase my RAM beyond the 12GB I now have either, as my biggest problem will doubtless ALWAYS be our shitty internet connection; satellite SUCKS, (unless you pay $100 a month for LOTS of mb's), (which I'm not about to)

Something you need to take a VERY close look at..........cooling; the faster your processor, the harder your apps make the whole system work.......the more HEAT you produce, and HEAT KILLS computer "innards" ! Do anything you can to lessen the heat, including even a small external fan. (Klaus can probably give you all kinds of good advice about this)

Klaus to the rescue ! I was thinking that to Klaus, but I was hoping you'd come along and chime in. Based on what he has said, I would be very surprised if his problem had to do with the "innards"........sounds more like a sudden power loss, so it could easily be something very minor,

Is Applecare automatically for 3 yrs ? I was thinking I bought it for two yrs, but I hope you're right.
When my 8 yr old 20 inch iMack "went out", it gave lots of warning over several months; and even when it finally quit, the power supply was still working fine.

Not in the US. In Europe there are several laws that require the warranty to be longer... in the US, it's twelve months. If you buy another two years it gets added on to that.

Could be, but the power supply still remains in the running. It is less complex, but it operates under higher load and is exposed to surges in the grid (such as ones caused by lightning strikes somewhere close to the line or switching spikes). And, of course, simple defects like a faulty power cable (you can just switch it for another one to check) or even a worn-out power push button are still possible as well. I couldn't say for sure without looking into the actual machine.

Unless you restrict the air vents on the bottom and on the back, the machine should still be able to cool itself properly. You basically can't mess up a Mac's cooling apart from that. It would normally take defective heat sensors, fans or other components to cause overheating as a secondary symptom.

Quoting Geezer (Reply 17):

Yes, the AppleCare Protection Plan tops up your Mac's standard 1-year warranty to a total of 3 years from purchase; It also extends the default 90-day phone support to the same 3 years.
http://www.apple.com/support/products/mac.html

AppleCare for mobile devices and Apple TV is 2 years in total, but the fee is correspondingly reduced.
http://www.apple.com/support/products/iphone.html

It is basically an insurance policy with an add-on support package; As with any insurance, you'll see a net "loss" if you won't need it, but a net "gain" if you do. It's a matter of good or bad luck in either case.

Quoting Braniff747SP (Reply 19):
Not in the US. In Europe there are several laws that require the warranty to be longer... in the US, it's twelve months. If you buy another two years it gets added on to that.

It's a bit more complicated than that – in Germany, for instance, there is an EU-mandated warranty period of 2 years (yes, that evil EU! ), but only within the first six months the burden of proof that a defect is not due to a manufacturing defect is on the dealer who sold the product (not on the manufacturer!); For the remaining 18 months, the burden of proof falls to the customer, but again not relative to the manufacturer but to the specific local dealer (which can be a pro or a con, depending on circumstances).

AppleCare is a full-on manufacturer's warranty plus support extension which also applies worldwide – you don't need to get the product back to the german store where you bought it (which might not even exist any more).

The legal minimum warranty is something very different from what you get from manufacturers, and again from what you can get via third-party insurance firms. Each of them has its respective advantages and limitations.

My AppleCare coverage vs. Apple directly runs in parallel to my legal coverage vs. the dealer. They are not exactly the same and in case of a defect there can be reasons to pursue one or the other (although AppleCare is usually the less difficult way). But after the legal coverage runs out, only AppleCare remains.

In other countries with shorter minimum warranties AppleCare can make an even bigger difference.

Of course its brightness can be reduced to a level that's ideal for your eyes as with any other display (actually even farther down than most displays). So that is definitely not a real concern.

For me its primary advantages are:

• I can have three full-size browser, source code, PDF or command line windows next to each other – this has made printing completely redundant for me, since all page-based documents are perfectly readable without zooming or scrolling within pages and even longer texts or sources are easy to keep in view.

• When viewing photos even just made with my iPhone (8 MP), the pictures still just fit at 56% – but at 100% at least I can see more than half of them on either axis at full detail resolution, which is great progress beyond smaller-resolution displays. With a "proper" camera it's even more important to have as much detail and as much area at the same time, as Charley (Geezer) knows well.

• I still have a secondary 24" (1920*1200) display connected which extends the desktop even further – it keeps the main 27" (2560*1440) iMac display free of menus, palettes, the Dock and other non-document stuff (such as TV) and also provides space for additional windows when I need them. The only thing better than having one high-resolution display is having more than one...!  Big grin

• Working with such a large display is more like looking through a window than through a periscope (as with smaller displays), to a noticeably better degree aproaching the actual field of view. Much of the previous constriction just falls away.

• Colour reproduction is factory-calibrated on the newer Apple displays (both Macs and mobile devices) and still quite decent on the older ones, so subjective image quality is very good.

• At this size, a panel with good viewing angles is a must, because even when looking at it head on at normal viewing distance (about 80cm), I already see its edges at a noticeable angle. So the IPS panel in the iMac does in fact cost a bit more, but a cheap TN panel would be practically unusuable.

It is perfectly reasonable for many people to choose a smaller display for a variety of valid reasons, but display brightness is certainly not one of them; And I would generally recommend at least a good look at the bigger one before making the decision.

I personally can make good use of any additional pixel at my disposal, but neither my personal preferences nor my needs for my line of work (often complex digital development) necessarily apply to everybody else.

Can't speak for anyone else, but I got that one because it fit's perfectly in the cavity of the workstation I have at home and I didn't feel like buying a new one. Beside, I sit about two feet from the screen so if 21.5" isn't big enough then I've got a serious eyesight problem  
If I want to watch a movie I'll just pop a Blu-Ray in my player hooked up to my big TV downstairs. But hey, that's me - I know lots of people steam movies etc on their computers.

Anyhow, DFWheavy, hope you enjoy your Mac as much as I have these past four years. I'll never go back to a Windows-based machine for personal use. I'm stuck with one at work though.

Well, then my problem is that I am not a one-eyed pirate with severe tunnel vision on top of that...!   

At ca. 80cm viewing distance my viewing angle of the 27" display is:
horizontally: atan(59,77cm/2/80cm)/pi*180°*2 = 41,0°
vertically: atan(33,62cm/2/80cm)/pi*180°*2 = 23,7°

With the human field of vision having about 180° in both directions, this is only a small part of it – even just of the smaller binocular field of vision at about 120°.

And in practical use I still perceive the secondary display left of the primary one plus some wall beyond that one, the entire desk below and the windows and wall above it. So this is no limitation at all – it could well be bigger than this before running into physiological limitations.

Since your viewing distance is much larger there, the actual viewing angle is usually smaller than with even medium-sized computer monitors – the big TV sizes effectively just compensate for that.
