Re: Anyone order the 27" iMac, what is your ship date

said by skeechan:

Better S or get off the pot, being the 24th is less than 2 weeks out now. I love my rMBP but for me iTunes library storage would make running that kind of setup a pain in the ass. I use home sharing every day.

Well the Macbook Pro would just be a glorified mac Mini sitting there, I would hardly ever use it as a full fledged laptop. Plus with the Thunderbolt display it would have the ability to have firewire 800 hooked up, which I use now for my storage. I just want an Imac that is ivy bridge based, SSD boots, and can be VESA mounted which means I probably need a macbook pro because the Mini would not work for what I want with all the connections.

What would a mini + TBolt display be missing?

A decent dedicated GPU and another thunderbolt port.

It'd be cool if Apple could integrate a GPU in the TBolt display...


not quite right
I'm not cool enough to be a Mac person

That's actually brillant I wonder if they have made engineering samples that did that. You could take that one step further and have part of that monitor interchangeable so you could do upgrades to newer GPU's over time.

It would make an already expensive panel even more so.

Aside from games I haven't had any problems with my HD 3000. I watch full screen 1080P video and run ACAD and NX and it never skips a beat.
