i just contacted apple on their chat about something that was bugging me. the non inclusion of the apple remote on the new iMacs. i contacted a rep an they said that there were never apple remotes in the iMac boxes. then another rep said none for the last five years. the last rep said two generations. i swear the last gen iMacs had remotes in them. try asking them and see what happens. i don't know why they lied and im sorry for going on like this. im just a little pissed off.
