Serial number maps to:
iMac (27-inch Late 2009) (CTO)
That could also have been deduced from the fact that AppleCare coverage extends to Nov 29th 2012. Which also answers those who have enquired when I bought it but also don't wish to receive e-mails.
Reason for selling ? For the past eight years I have been a devotee of the flight simulator X-plane.com and the long-awaited upgrade to X-plane 10 has finally come to fruition. In fact the (8) disc package finally arrived in the mail this very morning. This latest revision calls for a faster CPU, improved graphics with as much VRAM and RAM as you can provide. I have been assured by Laminar Research that a BTO May/2011 edition of iMac will more than meet those demands.
