Because of a work-related obligation, I absolutely had to purchase an iMac two days ago. When I made the purchase, I was aware that an iMac refresh was imminent. I have 15 days from the date of purchase to trade it in; assuming Apple releases a new iMac next Tuesday, I will be within my 15-day window. If I can take advantage of the trade-in option, I will probably get the 2011 iMac. But I am wondering whether others have purchased Apple products so close to a refresh and gotten other benefits. An obvious one to me would be to ask Apple for a gift card equivalent to the post-refresh discount. Anyone on this forum have any thoughts about that? Any other ideas for compensation from Apple? Thanks!
