It’s looking good. I got an email from Apple saying that since I hadn’t yet received my iMac, they are automatically going to upgrade me to a Core 2 Duo model instead of my original Core Duo. You rock, Apple!
When I checked up on my order yesterday at the Apple store web site, I didn’t immediately notice that the price was about $275 less than what I’d originally ordered. I can’t see anything different in the customizations that I’d ordered for the iMac, so I guess the price is just less now (which is amazing considering there’s a better chip inside). Another yay!
