    tax returns are in! and while i wait in line for a new iPad 2, im thinking of a new iMac.......... so im wondering before i decide on size......i really want a quad core BUT will i go crosseyed in front of it?

    so my question is......................how BIG is your iMac and how close are you to it without going crosseyed?

    thanks guys!

    lol i got a macbookpro with my tax return...
    we use the 21 ones at school and they're are more then fine on the eyes
    ive got the high res screen on my mbp so im getting a much worse squint on it then the imacs.
    the 27 are just ridiculous....and totally seductive..will be my next purchase from Apple :)

    Yourll be fine :)
    The only thing you should do is loom away from ANY screen every 30-40 minutes and focus on something 20-40 feet away as this helps the eyes not get strained and prevent problems later on

    I have a tiny 21.5" iMac but I'm old and don't need a BIG one anymore. :)

    Yeah I just got my first MBP 13" 2011 model and I think my next investment is going to be the 27" Apple cinema display.

    I have the 27" 2010 model. Can't go wrong with the 27" if you have the cash and the room for it.

    27" LOVE IT!

    The next one will be a monster I think. i am personally hoping they go up to and offer a 32" for the iMac. I know it's big, but I am so used to this 27" I want the next one to be bigger.
