I've heard stories that you can sell you gray mouse & keyboard (just use a boring aluminum colored one yourself)

I thought you were joking. Nope. Checked SOLD listings on everyone's favorite "auction" site (store), and JFC...the keyboard and mouse are selling from $350-750.

Wow. If I had Microcenter in my state, I'd snatch two of these, sell one as-is, sell the keyboard and mouse from the other and keep the computer for what would probably end up being roughly half price.

Alas, we don't have MC here Frown

Limit 1 per household Wink

^^Only somewhat joking, as I'm considering grabbing one myself and selling the keyboard mouse to offset the cost of the computer.

Guessing that most people aren't lining up outside the door to shell out $5,000 on a computer that doesn't have anywhere near $5,000 worth of hardware in it.

From some review I read apparently these new iMac still facing cooling & throttling issues where temperatures get as high as 90c while running intensive workloads...
