    Thanks for the tip. I guess i will head to the store and try my luck. So is the serial number of the mac mini is on the box? i.e. can i tell if it is updated or not with out opening it?

    How long is it going to take them to make this official? They've been shipping hidden upgrades for over a month.

    I have finally lost my patience too! I am going to the apple store to get the new one with a SD or i am going to just order the least expensive refurb on the apple website!
