    The 17" 2.0 iMac G5 with the Superdrive has been tempting me since I got enough money to get it. What are the chances of any updates this close to the last revision during WWDC? I can get it this weekend or wait to the next. It's just so tempting...

    Education Discount + Spring Discount = AWESOME DEAL

    I say get it now.

    The demand for them is already high and to update even just a small amount would get a big backlash I'd think from those who recently bought them.

    WWDC should be for Powerbooks or iBooks. Maybe an iPod update too. But an iMac update would make no sense whatsoever.

    Duff-Man says...c'mon...the iMac was just updated a month ago...there will be no update again so soon.....buy it if you have the money....and check the MacRumors Buyers Guide in the future for info on updates and when they have happened and when are (by previous history) most likely to be updated next...oh yeah!

    Yeah, this will be my first Mac too. =P

    I guess I'll be trying to get it this Sunday then. I'll call the local Apple Store to see if they have any in stock. They just need my student ID for the education discount. I do check the Buyer's Guide often. I'm just paranoid.

    I'm the same way with the Power Mac... I guess it's natural to want the newest and coolest computer.

    Oh duff-man...why are your posts so entertaining to read even though it's the same catchphrase over and over?

    I think it's because I'm imagining the voice. :p

    even though you said you're getting it this weekend, i'd personally wait - while the iMac is almost certainly not getting a refresh, you never know what will be announced that might sway your purchasing decision. and especially since it's only waiting 2 more days...

    Oh man, go for it! I just bought a new 20" and I absolutely love it! The recent update was so rich that I doubt it would be topped anytime soon. You probably have about 6-9 months before another iMac update, unless of-course if they announce a 23" model or something.

    I just need to print off a copy of that extra Spring Promo discount. I already have my UPC cut and ready for it. I just got my 17" iMac G5 and I love it. I'll be getting DSL in a week so I can update and download to my delight. Just one last question, does my Applecare cover upgrades that I purchase? I don't mind installing RAM myself but if they can do it...
