So I bought a new iMac today, went to the apple store here and they were out of 2013 models. Well we have a few independent "Authorized Resellers" around here which I have no familiarity with but I decided to give them a shot. I was really hoping for the 2013 model and I got a little too excited and didn't double check the specs. I ended up buying the late 2012 model for the same retail price as the 2013's. (Oops) Now the 2013's weren't launched to long ago... but me jumping the gun purchased a downgraded model. It was also an open box item so i got $50 knocked off. Im not quite sure what to do. I was really hoping for the 2013 and am disappointed and a little leaved at myself for not checking before throwing down for that kind of cash. I bought a base 27", and I was really hoping for the Haswell model. My return conditions are All products must be 100% in original packaging. 14 day period for an exchange, merchandise credit or refund. A 20% open box fee may be assessed for an opened product. I kind of feel cheated because of the purchase price. I really didn't give it two thought after already shopping that day for the model only to find it out of stock. I can understand that this is kind of a smaller independent store and so they may have some older stock but I just assumed that the machine was the current model. I am kind of debating what I should do? Suck it up and live with it? Try to exchange it (the 2013 is not in stock there either), or try and go for a refund and possibly take a 20% hit on the price (which at that point I'd probably just loose out on the cash and go build another PC). I don't want to go in all in a tizzy but Im a little upset at the price/model year... I feel a little deceived and its my fault for not double checking since I assumed incorrectly. I need some advice on what to do. Also I like the machine, I just though Haswell and updated GPU was what I was actually buying. Its also a lot of cash for me to throw down on a mac that's not quite new for full retail price when I could get better specs for the price.
