I own several 24" iMacs with 1920 x 1200, beyond 1080 and find the brightness control necessary when using the display as a computer screen, usually about 1/5 of the brightness level. Only when viewing TV , recorded .mov, .mkv, etc. files or DVDs does the increased brightness come into play.

I'm ready for the 27" as my personal computer, was hoping for 32"...but the smaller 27" is good for now. LED backlighting should be an improvement when viewing video sources. i5 & i7s make me smile too.

I don't think many Apple Stores have the 27" iMacs in store yet. There's none available in Calgary Canada, at least. I've already called the store and they're not sure when they'll be in. That will let the hype come down a bit anyways, so there's nothing wrong with that. Impulse buying usually comes back to bite you anyways. That said, I'm looking forward to seeing this monster. Also, I would have liked to see an option for an i5 or i7 on a 21.5 inch unit. I want the speed, but I'm not sure I could handle that large a desktop. Maybe that's just me.


Wow - I've just got to see the 27" at the Apple Store tonight!

We're getting closer to a true HDTV. I smell it in the works!
