So last Monday (Feb 11) I finally got the 27" iMac that I ordered on Jan. 16. Sadly, today I had to return it to the Apple store and reorder. It'll be another 3-4 weeks. You'd think Apple would have a better setup for getting a replacement machine to a customer after they've already waited a month, especially since it was defective. There was some issue with the machine in that it would do a crazy boot up in low resolution and wouldn't let me reset it to a higher res. It started about 3 days after I got the machine. By this morning, I was having to reboot six times before I could get the machine to open in high res mode. I called Apple support. The didn't have a clue why it was happening on a new machine, but said I could bring it in and they'd send it off for repair. I decided having it fixed first rattle out of the box would be about the same as buying a refurb machine, and I paid good money for new. Oh well. The time will go by quickly - - I hope. Fortunately, I still have my early 2009 24" iMac. It's been trouble-free all these years.
