Well Apple came through for me. I have had many many issues with my iMac. I still love it and it has been great for me.... but I finally am getting a new one. Long story short, over the past two years I have had three logic boards, two sets of speakers, a power supply, and an airport card replaced. About three months ago I started noticing a squeal or pop or squeak coming from my hard drive. Definitely an electronic noise. I called Apple and they confirmed that the maxtor drives are notorious for noises and they can't figure out why? Well the tech I spoke to looked up my history and said "we have replaced pretty much everything but the hard drive, you are getting a new iMac". I am pretty stoked by this, and stoked I got Applecare, but here is my big question: With a replacement will they ship the latest version of the iMac or what they have in stock? Meaning, if an update comes out in the next month or so will I get the update or will I get the latest version? I am not in any specific hurry to move as my current iMac works just fine apart from the hard drive being on the brink. My shipping slip is good through the middle of April. Any thoughts?
