So, I got up this morning to an email from my friend at Apple that ordered the new iMac for me. He said something like, “I didn’t know about this, honest.” If you take a look at the Apple site you’ll see that the entire iMac line was refreshed this morning, faster processor, better video card, and $50 cheaper!!!! For Christ’s sake, I just got my computer on Saturday. So, I got on the horn with Apple customer support to see if I could return and reorder. The whole time I was on hold, I was wondering what I would do if they didn’t accommodate me. I mean, I might have to change my whole identity…I mean, I talk about Apple all the time, pontificate about them in class, discuss their brilliance and attention to design. What if I suddenly had to be angry with them?
Alas, after about 30 minutes, I was given the answer I wanted to hear: return the out-of-date, 2-day old system for a full refund and no restocking charges. So, in a few days, you’ll see another post proclaiming that the even newer iMac is here!
