    I’m already saving up my pennies for the top-of-the-line 27 incher, with 2TB drive and 256GB SSD! I’ll have that replaced with a 512GB drive, plus a 16GB of RAM……. oh baby, I’ll be broke, but I’ll be in heaven!The only downside is that it comes with a 4-6 wait…. bummer!

    • Cool.

      Note that RAM and HD can be replaced after market, especially if you want to replace the 256gb with a 512gb. You probably don’t need more than 256GB if you got a HD though.
