    If you remember me, I was the fellow who's Mac was bled on by a well-intentioned repairman. My story is told here;

    Well, my replacement came.

    I inspected the shipping receipt provided on the box. "Hmm, strange," I thought. The label said they shipped a 2.0ghz iMac, but I knew that the G5 had a 2.1ghz processor. I shrugged it off, thinking that they had perhaps rounded the number off. I was wrong. As I carefully unfolded the box, the words “Core Duo” shine in my eye with a radiant and perhaps heavenly glow.

    In a strange turn of events that I can only honestly attribute to the loving hand of God, I am now the owner of an iMac Core Duo 20″. Somehow, Apple shipped me an Intel Mac rather than a G5.

    Congratulations! (If you wanted an intel machine...)
    I got to play with one and I loved it.

    Apple paid a convenience fee. Sending out a tech who knows nothing about iMacs was bad enough, but he nearly broke it trying to get inside and then left his DNA all over the machine. After that repair guy was thru with it, it devalued by 50%. They screwed up, and repaid him with interest. I have to say that would brighten up my day and my ideas about Apple when they bump up your machine like that.
