I pulled the trigger and ordered a new 2020 27” iMac on Last Saturday. Expected delivery date was 1st week in September. This morning’s email from Apple said it had shipped and delivery date is next Thursday.

Now I have to make room for it. First new Mac since 2013. (2012 Mini).

Specs
27” iMac
8 GB ram
1 TB SSD
3.8 GHz 10th gen i7
Radeon 5700 8GB
Standard Glass.

Leaderific!

It has to arrive and be up and running before any Leader is officially permitted.

This.

I find it interesting that even the i5 models of this Mac have hyperthreading.

IIRC, in the last iteration, only the i9 models had this feature.

I'm going to have to see what the Geekbench scores say about this.

Still waiting here too.

I want to go 10 core i9, 1 TB and 5700 as well.... but if the 8 core i7 numbers come back close to the 10 core... ill save the $400. 2019s i9 was pretty dang speedy.

That's a sweet machine. You might want to consider getting some RAM to make the most of it depending on your needs, though the 1TB SSD will be terrific virtual memory.

Definitely. The new machine will be tons faster than the 2012 mini regardless, but only 8GB of RAM will be a hinderance once you go beyond the most basic tasks. Easily upgraded however!

Happy that I don't have to pay the Apply Tax for more RAM.
I'll probably add 2 -8 GB Sticks for 24 total…
