    Should I return my iMac and wait for the new one?

    Hi, I bought the 21.5" iMac in Oct, so I have two days left to return it if I want. My question is if it's worth returning and waiting to get the new iMac in Nov. The optical drive removal is annoying, but I can get one for cheap, so that doesn't bother me too much. And, I really don't care that it's only 5mm and lighter.

    Are the other improvements worth returning the old and getting the new? I've read lots of reviews and everyone keeps talking about the optical drive and less about the other upgrades. Is the screen display that much better? I'm mainly using it for internet browsing and photo editing/storage. And, couldn't I just purchase additional hard dive storage if I needed it in the future?

    Thanks!

    I would return it without a question if the optics mean nothing..

    Fusion alone should make you take notice of the new iMacs.. A article here: More on Fusion Drive: How it works, and how to roll your own

    That with the new Ivy Bridge processor should make a nice improvement.

    I am waiting for the 27" myself, but I am using a late 2009 iMac here...
