Apple iMac 27″ (Late 2012)

Been waiting to order the new Apple iMac 27″ (Late 2012) [1] since it was announced back in 23rd October 2012 to replace my 4 years old desktop. Apple Online Store (Singapore) [2] made the new iMacs available for order on the 30th November 2012. I placed my order on the very day using my brother’s name from the Education Store [3] since he is still a student in National University of Singapore (NUS).

I maxed out the specifications for the 27″ iMac except for the 756GB SSD option because it is way too expensive. After max specifications, the iMac itself cost S$4,349 and I bought Apple Care which is an additional S$218. In total, it cost S$4,567.

My iMac was shipped on the 24th December 2012 and I received it on Boxing Day, 26th December 2012.

Seriously, no one does packaging better than Apple. I am amazed with the simple yet attention-to-detail packaging of the iMac. I am impressed with how thin the new iMac is, but that doesn’t really interest me for long because I will be placing it on my desk and I will be looking at it face-to-face rather than from the side (in order to notice how thin is it).

I did not opt for the Apple Wireless Keyboard [4] because I already have one [5], instead I opted for the Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad [6].
