New iMac 27" BTO spec in store!

Glad to report that I finally have gotten my hands on my 27" iMac 2012! I originally ordered it online Dec. 31st and it is still "in processing". However, a business apple team associate managed to get his hands on my exact BTO in the store after a few days wait!

iMac 27"
Core i7 3.4Ghz
8GB Ram - upgrading with Crucial on my own
1TB Fusion
GTX 680MX
Wired Keyboard
Superdrive

Woot - can't wait to post a review on this. My first iMac

What I did is called the local store and asked for the business team. I did the work order under my employers name with my name on the purchase - however, I have noticed that the business team at almost any Apple store goes above and beyond for their clients. Def. a VIP service.
