    FIrst off im having a iMac G5, infact it should be delievred today according to the tracker website. Anyway, before i ordered this one, i ordered another one from Apple, just under a month before this one that im getting today, and in that time, the upgraded the iMac, and changed my order accordingly, now they messed up when they did this, and i had a iMac for 700 pounds ish, i can post the exact details if someone wishes to check this out,, but when i went to pay for it,, i was goign by finance,, they said it was a mistake, now i actually emailed apple before this, and they comfirmed this price was correct, so where do i stand, the guy who took my second order,,, ( i just wanted the iMac asap, lol, i want i want i want)said that he would pass this on, and get back to me, this was abot two weeks ago now, and nothing has come back.Should Apple of honoured this price that they quoted me on their website? and if so, how do i get it?

    sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

    its gone a bit squished, i cut and paste,, but how cheap is that, i think that apple should honour their website price,, its like going to a supermarket, and the wrong barcode being on a product, and it being cheaper.

    Appears the replacement product is a decent upgrade for a lowered price ... not sure I understand the problem. If the second listing is what you were quoted, and Apple is now not wanting to honor the price, I would think that if you have it in writing, that they would have to honor it. However, that is just my opinion. Good luck.
