    How about "take it back to Apple during the return window"?

    In an area such as technology, where things move at a swift pace, research and planning are required to avoid this type of occurrence.

    With Apple, yes - and even then it is a guessing game.

    With other vendors, you can usually expect:
    - Quick adoption of new tech (if Intel launches a new processor, it will show up as soon as practical)
    - NDA presentations on upcoming hardware
    - A phased transition (the previous generation of tech will be sold alongside the latest for some time)

    Intel has been shipping Haswell-EP processors for 8 or 9 months - but can anyone predict whether Apple will announce tomorrow that the MP6,2 (or MP7,1) will use these improved CPUs? No.
