Ordered a 27″ iMac yesterday

Well, I retired my 10 year old G4 when I bought Nell a Mac mini a while back, and now it is time to retire the 5 year old G5.

It is a liquid cooled dual 2.5 GHz CPU model that has leaked twice (while under apple care), and had the power supply fans die. After the last repair (out of applecare) one CPU was sporadic and then died. So, it was getting a bit slow, and on top of that, the new Aperture is intel only… so time to upgrade.

New system is a 27″ iMac with the following configuration:

Processor       2.8Ghz Quad-Core Intel Core I7
Memory          8Gb 1066Mhz Ddr3 Sdram - 2X4Gb
Hard Drive      1Tb Serial Ata Drive
Graphics        Ati Radeon Hd 4850 512Mb
Optical Drive   8X Double-Layer Superdrive

Should have it in about a week. Then need to freecycle the old towers and one 21″ (CRT) monitor.
