Also waiting in the wings for the new iteration of iMacs. From what has been posted on MacRumors, and from a friend who founded a big MUG group in Los Angeles, the i7 cpu offers advantages only to certain sorts of applications. It would largely go unused by PhotoShop and LR. But, if you've got the extra money, why not?

Several pro photographers have told me that displays for PCs are superior to the iMac screen. So, since there is an advantage to having two screens in any case, save money and choose a small iMac. Then buy a second monitor that is larger to sit alongside it.
