Looking Back 2012

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.

For 2012, my resolution/wish is pretty simple and much cheaper! I just want a new iMac to replace my 4 year’s old desktop and a MacBook Air to replace my 4 year’s old MacBook Pro as well!

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.

Li Xiang got the Western Digital My Passport (1TB) from Challenger for S$189 (Member’s Price: S$159).

This is the new 2012 edition and WD has dropped the name “Essential SE” and hence the name is just Western Digital My Passport. Also USB 3.0 is now the standard feature.
