Don't ever buy Apple Ram. I just configured my new 27" on the Apple site, 32 GB Apple RAM $600 v. the same in Kingston at $264. Re: monitor question. I love my 30" Cinema, but it's five years old and is going to get retired, along with my dual quad MacPro Tower. The display on my iMac at HQ is decidedly better than my 30", and these new ones are supposed to be much better than the current versions.
I'm reconfiguring for all iMacs, with Thunderbolt 20TB Drobo 5D's attached. I have a little more beta testing to do at HQ with the new Drobo, but I think that combo will save me a ton of open/tweak/save time. I'm very pleased so far, but I am not seeing the 25X speeds that are quoted for Thunderbolt over USB 2.0. I'd say the speed is about four times faster + -, which is still a big jump. Don't know what kind of a bump the SSD addition to the 5D would give me, if any.
