In May I wrote a piece about the need for a SSD upgrade option for the iMac. Today Apple launched an updated iMac line and introduced the SSD option for the 27-inch iMacs. I did not hesitate and just filed an order for a Core i7 iMac with the 256GB SSD plus 2TB storage option.

The 256GB SSD supports up to 215MB/s data transfer rates and gives you faster startup and application launch times. The price for speed is $600.
The 256GB SSD and 2TB SATA HDD combination costs $900. Apple pre-installs the OS X on the SSD of course.

The configuration I choose for the new iMac includes: 2.93Ghz Core i7 CPU, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD + 2TB and Magic Mouse + Magic TrackPad and Apple Remote. This almost top of the line iMac configuration (you still could spend another $800 for 16GB RAM) has a price of $3,387.

I should receive the new Core i7 iMac with SSD in about a week. I will of course post a hands-on review once its on my desk. Now I still have a week to say goodbye to my 5 year old Windows XP PC.
Shop for the new iMac on the Apple Store.
