iMac 27-inch i7 Quad


A 27-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen TFT display with 2560x1440 pixel resolution is driven by AMD Radeon HD 6970M 1GB of GDDR5. The top CPU offered was this 3.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7. 8GB of memory was a better fit for my purpose but is certainly more expensive at the apple store!

I got hooked on Mac after using a MacAir for awhile … 

Well … I've migrated 3 other systems to this one. Windows runs virtual for the couple things I have yet to figure out how to do with OSX (namely ripping BD and replay without loosing video or audio quality). 

The touchpad is great!


A couple BD drives pulled from my decommissioned  windows tower and put into USB external enclosures.

Pioneer introduces the world's first 12x BD-R/BD-R DL optical drive. The BDR-205 Internal Blu-ray Disc/DVD/CD Writer.

I've been through 4 BD drives for various odd disk read reasons. Since I've connected the HP BD player to the iMac I've not run into any issues. It was also the most reliable reader when connected to the windows hardware.
