I can't believe it! Ordered my new 24" "custom" iMac (2.4Ghz upgrade to 2.8, 500GB drive etc), on Monday, and my wife phoned this morning to say it was here! Considering Fed Ex was showing a delivery date of tomorrow or Friday as of this morning, I was pleasantly surprised. I ran home at lunch time to check things out. Of course, I'll have a ton more time this weekend, but I was really interested to see if Leopard was pre-installed. Sadly, it was not, but the drop in was in the box. No complaints really as now I have a copy of Tiger and Leopard for the machine. (Probably buy Leopard soon anyway to upgrade my old Powermac G5 once the new machine is up and running). Quick, literally, 1st half hour impressions? It's gorgeous, LOL. I took it out of the box to make sure all was OK physically; installed 4GB of OWC ram, plugged it in in a temp spot, and fired it up. Look FANTASTIC! Ram recognized, screen appears to be perfect when looking at all gray etc., and yep, the 500GB drive and 2.8 procs are in there. I think I'm really going to love this thing. Now I need to decide whether I really need to hookup my 20" ACD as a 2nd monitor, or leave it with the Powermac. This 24 is even bigger in house than in store, hehe. Anywho, that's it. Back to work.....now, if only I could get sick or something this afternoon!
