In my Looking Back 2011 post, I mentioned that I wanted to get a new iMac and a MacBook Air to replace my ageing desktop and MacBook Pro respectively and I did it.
Been waiting to order the new Apple iMac 27″ (Late 2012) since it was announced back in 23rd October 2012 to replace my 4 years old desktop. Apple Online Store (Singapore) 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 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.

Same as last year’s 11-11-11, I am now leaving a mark on 12-12-12 12:12pm! 2012 will be the last year till 2100 that the month number will match the last 2 digit of the year!
