I've been waiting to hear more about the i7 issues before buying one and when I was at a local Mac reseller here in New Zealand I asked the sales assistant about their level of sales of the i7 vs the number of returns. His reply surprised me. He said "Don't buy one for a month or so." and that just yesterday Apple had told them that they will be recalling the i7 and that they will likely make an announcement either in the next few days or at some announcement/conference that is scheduled for late January. He said there is some serious overheating issues going on with the i7 and they are fixing or have fixed the issue. I was quite surprised so I didn't take note of his exact words at the time but this was the main point of the conversation. So I don't know if I should believe this, it doesn't seem like some sales assistant in NZ would know this before the rest of the world but I'm wondering if anyone has heard the same thing?
