    :apple:Well after what seems like years it has finally arrived. My husband was kind enough to set it up for me and take pictures for me since I am trapped at work:( I included just a few of them here. It is the process of updating so I cannot give any specific hardware information till it completes. I just wanted to share my happiness!!

    Could you please run this command in the terminal:
    ioreg -lw0 > quadcorei5.ioreg

    and send me the resulting quadcorei5.ioreg file? This file contains all the details of your hardware configuration. I'm really curious and this information could be very helpfull to me. This command is completely harmless, it will just write the configuration into this file. If you agree (please do) I can give you my email...

    It's very important to me.

    Just tell the boss it isn't like you will be very productive anyways if you stay! :D Tell them the world of macrumors is waiting for benchmarks and only you can save us.
