Just bought a new iMac today 9/5/2011 from the Santa Monica store in CA and I am a little disappointed. I bought the entry level iMac $1199 model and it came with snow leopard pre installed... WTF? I knew that it was snow leopoard but how would anyone else know (ie non techie folk). I called the apple store and the lady told me that they still have a few with snow leopard. Shouldnt they at least notify people before you walk out the door. I already bought Lion so installing it again was not a problem, but waiting for 4gb plus download a non native install isnt the same as an upgrade. Also, Apple updated the keyboard layout to a more lion style look, I don't want to sound like a cry baby but I expect apple to have at least updated their hardware when the major OS came out over a month ago. I usually do not complain about stupid stuff, but after spending over $1k I expect better from Apple. I guess I should order online next time to get the newest refresh. Still upset, my parents would not have noticed what the difference is between lion/snow leopard. /end rant Wanted to share that don't expect the newest OS updates in store even a month later, and do not be surprised if no one mentions anything.
