    Howdy Folks,

    First visit first question:

    Sunday I bought from Apple a jazzed up iMac 24", 3.06gHz.

    Right after that I jump on the forums and all I read is the impending new release of the next version of the iMac.

    I spoke with an Apple rep. and he indicated that given my delivery date I would be sent the iMac upgrade. I can also return the iMac up to t he ship date.

    So...Should I cancel that order and wait for the iMac upgrade??


    Thanks,
    Zill.

    Well, if you'd be given the iMac upgrade, what's the issue?

    I highly doubt that is a 100% sure thing.
    He ordered the current gen, there is a chance that's what he'll get.
    And it's even likely Apple will ship it before releasing the new models.

    iParis,

    Thanks. I guess that is the issue. Given my ship date of 3/7-3/19 the gent indicated to hold off most likely get shipped the new version.


    Or I play it safe and cancel the order. The gent also said I can cancel right up to the ship date. Unless it ships earlier.


    Thanks,

    Zill.

    Have you paid for the iMac and have funds cleared your account?

    If so, then I wouldn't expect you'd automatically get the newest model should they launch between the time you placed your order and the stated shipping date.

    The prices are pretty certain to change, and I don't necessarily mean a price increase.

    Cancel it now!

    Dude, cancel if the option is still there. It's not 100% certain you would get the new iMac. Plus, if they haven't withdrawn your funds, there is no reason not to cancel.

    That situation is a little different. when the aluminum macbooks came out, the X3100 white macbook was still current. the white nvidia macbooks didn't get released until later.
