Re: A new iMac for the wife. Which one.

I'm in the same boat. I'm using the earliest intel MacPro. Faster than lightning in 2006, it's a dog now. It's also a bit flaky. I don't need the big case and an iMac would be fine... but I don't want to buy a machine w/o usb3. I'm not confident that thunderbolt will survive.

I'm getting pretty itchy and wonder about a retina macbook pro and a monitor. I gather they're crazy fast and powerful, but that'd be a lot more $$$.

The predictions I've seen agree with the above in all but one aspect... a revision soon w/ ivybridge and usb3 but not with a Retina display. Apparently at 27" that's beyond the current hardware abilities.

We'll see. If my big box dies (and the video has been flaky), I'll be forced into the macbook.
