    I'm thinking about purchasing the new 27" iMac core i7. But there's obviously some issues with online orders and the shipping process, resulting in DOA iMacs and cracked screens. (Read here).

    I would really like to pass on all the gambling of ordering a possible DOA/cracked iMac. And the hassle of sending back and waiting and etc.

    So! Are these bad boys even in the stores yet? I haven't been able to make my way over just yet.

    If so, has anyone had any issues with walking in and buying this product from the Apple Store?

    I believe the i7s are only a BTO online, so you can't get them in store. Only the i5s.

    Even so, how would the assembly line do any differently from BTOs to Apple Store orders. Seriously, these threads are getting absolutely ridiculous as far as "issues"...:rolleyes:

    thank you for saying that.

    Order it already. =)

    You sure you need/want an i7?

    i5s are $350 cheaper.

    Not sure what you are using it for, but game/3D performance is nearly identical:
