    I placed an order of iMac 27' last night, Jan 13th, and I am really excited.

    I left everything as default except I bought the 8 GB ram instead of the 4.

    It's going to arrive in another 18 days approx. (2 weeks + 2-3 days shipping)

    This is my first time ever owning an Mac. I'm excited! :D

    Is it too late to change it back to 4 gigs?

    Difference is those 2 x 2 gigs of ram cost $100 -- half of what Apple charges. That would save you $100 instantly... just enough to buy a nice new 1TB USB 2 drive for backup. =)

    You would also get it sooner =).

    Installation takes about 1 minute, say on the level of a 10 year old. Instructions are actually printed on the foot of the iMac, you dont even need to crack the manual or search the web.
