Ack, they still haven't updated the Aussie Education store properly yet. It's on the splash, but no new macs showing.

That being said, the timing is nice. I DO hope they put the price either down, or the specs have been bumped noticably.

The 17" and 20" has become much cheaper, too... :)

But with 2 x 512 MB as the lowest RAM configuration (except for the 17" which also can be bought with 2 x 256) I foresee a lot of wasted RAM once people get their cheaper 3rd party RAM... why not an option to get 1 x 512 or even 1 x 1 GB? :(

Well this sucks . . . I just bought my iMac back in April! Once I heard that the Core 2's were out, I knew Apple would upgrade ASAP. I just knew it. :(
