    I know it's been discussed, but I need to order the computer soon due to the 2 week wait. I'd hate to have it arrive then some sort of update at Apple's event! Just tell me things are going to be ok :)

    They have a 2 week grace period. If you buy a Mac and within 2 weeks they update that line and yours becomes obsolete, you can have yours replaced with the new one. I'm pretty sure it starts when you receive the computer. If you buy now, then the grace period would end after the keynote.

    Plus, there most likely won't be any updates to the iMac line anyway.

    iMacs were updated less than 3 months ago so it's almost impossible that they'll get updated again though Intel and ATI has both released hardware that suits greatly for iMac. Remember that you have 14 days to return yours if you buy so even IF Apple updates them, you could just exchange it for brand new one

    I'm just wondering if they will use a tiny update as a mask to implement something different to combat the yellowing screens..to quietly get rid them? But yea, I'll be in the return period, so all good.

    It's not an update to get rid of a problem, it's called fixing a problem. Steve won't come up on stage and say "oh, by the way, we fixed the iMacs' screen issue". Apple won't even admit that the problem exists

    My point exactly. I'm saying they 'update' something minor, using it as a cover for quietly fixing the problem.
