    Should I pre-order the new iMac from Best Buy Canada's website (Estimated release date: November 3, 2009) or buy it from the online Apple Store? I do not know what to do. The only problem with the online Apple Store is if I open the package and find a defect such as a dead pixel, I'll be charged a 10% open box fee. But, If there is a defect in the package ordered from Best Buy Canada, I may return it to one of their retail stores, which I can't to Apple Retail Stores. Is the wait worth it?

    I bought all 3 of my macs at the Apple Online Store without any problems. I would suggest that you buy yours there as well.

    Go to the apple store. Plus you get to show off your new purchase as you walk out of the store. Lloyd
