I'm helping my friend buy his first iMac sometime next week. He's currently using a 1st-gen black MacBook that is pretty worn out after 4 years of PoliSci at Texas A&M. He's probably going for the stock low-end 27" model and I'll be upgrading his RAM from 4GB to 12GB using the same 2x4GB Crucial sticks I recently upgraded my 2010 i7 iMac with. I understand this is a transitional time for all Macs, with Lion coming pre-installed, new keyboard graphics for Launch Pad and Mission Control, new packaging, etc. Also, the recent Seagate HD recall... I want to make sure he gets a model that isn't affected by the recall. Are all new Lion-packaged iMacs exempt from this recall? ie. if the iMac's packaging has the new Lion desktop background, is it safe to assume it won't contain a faulty Seagate HD? Should I have my friend wait another month to be safe?
