    I ordered a 27" iMac today. I got it with a 256GB SSD, but didn't order extra RAM from Apple since they really gouge you on the price. I ordered two 16GB RAM cards from OWC for $140 vs the $600 that Apple would have charged me. The nice thing about the 27" iMacs is that you can instal RAM yourself in a little drawer on the back of the machine. No need to pay a tech and have them take the whole thing apart just to add a couple of RAM chips. I'll wind up with 40GB of RAM, and I think that should hold me WELL into the future. The internal SSD should really speed things up, as well. Also, this has a nice graphics card with 4GB of VRAM, so I can play around with the new AI apps like Topaz.

    I really like my 2013 21.5" iMac, but the old spinning hard drive is super slow, and I have inly 8GB of RAM. To add RAM you have to open it up, plus it can only take 16GB. Everyday actions in Lightroom can be really slow. When I have Lightroom and Photoshop both open, it can take an eternity for things to process. It take the word processor over a minute just to start up. I've had some weird freezes and crashes that I'm sure are related to the limited memory.

    Anyway, there went all my stimulus money. Apple is pretty backed up on production right now, so I won't get the machine until late August.

    Re: Post your latest purchases.

    Woody, I'm assuming that you ordered it directly from Apple. What model did you get? And what is the processor speed?

    It's unfortunate that you have to wait until late August to receive it. After reading your post, I browsed the Bestbuy web page and I'm flabbergasted that they have nothing available for 27-inch iMacs until at least August 21. Some models are listed as available only later than that. Wow!

    If you get an external hard drive with FW3/USB-C connections, it should also help to speed your work up substantially. I look forward to your reviews after it arrives.

    Base model, with the3.0GHz 6‑core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 4.1GHz), which is plenty good enough for my needs. The Radeon Pro 570X with 4GB of GDDR5 memory should be plenty to run the software I'll be using. (No gaming for me.) I also wish it was coming sooner, but between shipping delays, COVID and trade wars, things have slowed down a lot. I guess there are a number of people buying up the 27" models right now because they fear the new iMac models may not be user upgradable for RAM.

    Very nice specs; you should see a markedly noticeable performance improvement. On top of that, the display should please you greatly.

    I have read a rumor that the new models will be just as they worry they will be. I believe that people are also buying them because they're worried about a production stoppage stemming from possible worsening of trade issues between the US and China.

    And for what it's worth, installing and/or playing games on my iMacs is not tolerated. That is what Windows-based PCs are for.

    How different in size and weight are they? Is one heavier than the other? Since the new one goes to 600mm, my guess is it is larger and heavier.

    The 500 is bigger when closed, smaller diameter too. The 600 is a little heavier but its got a great feel to it, whatever its made with, fast focus and locks, the 500 would wander a bit.
