    New Mac tomorrow!
    (Not sure where to put this so please move if itís not in itís proper forum right now)

    Iím finally getting a brand new iMac, my first new one.

    My first one (which is also my current) was one which was handed down to me by my parents when they bought a new one. It is an iMac7,1 with a 20Ē screen and a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo.

    My Grandparentís ~6 year old computerís harddrive bit the dust and they think itís time for a new computer, and I convinced them itís time for a Mac. Theyíre getting this one and Iím getting the new one, not sure the exact specs but something fairly middle class from this generation of iMacs.

    Will update tomorrow with specs!

    So uh, unfortunately our local Apple Authorized Reseller doesn't have the new iMacs in, and won't for several months, so they've given me a great deal on the iMac10,1 instead. I won't get it until tomorrow because they are transferring all my data over to the new one, and wiping the old one so I can give it to my Granny.

    Hm, kinda strange that they can't get one for several months,
    But the C2D iMac is also a swell machine, It can do anything you throw at it, unless you are a Dreamworks 3D animator.

    May I remind you it's just an Apple Authorized Reseller, not an actual Apple Store, the nearest Apple Store is nearly 2 hours away. It also manages PCs and things like that so it does have other things to worry about.

    Hey come on...getting a passport has got to be worth it to visit an Apple Store! Of course given your location...it would be REALLY far to any Apple Store (Canada or US based).

    Also...Alaska Apple Stores was mentioned in this thread. Believe it or not...there are no Alaska Apple Stores!
