I have searched previous messages, but couldn't find an answer that matches my specific question. If I'm wrong, please point me to another thread. Anyway, like many of you, I am anxiously awaiting next Tuesday. That said, what are the differences between buying online compared to the Apple store? I know that nobody knows for sure, but with new products, does the Apple store generally have them quicker than the online store? I would imagine that any customizing would need to be done online too. Basically looking for pros and cons of buying online compared to the store, which is about 5 minutes from my office. I'm looking at a new iMac, with upgraded RAM, hard drive, and possibly video card. Granted, all could change on Tuesday, but that's what I'm leaning. It could be that I can't do what I want at the store, and will be forced to do it online. But, what does that do to timing? I am a "switcher", and I am dying to get what I have been waiting so long to order. They are tired of seeing me in the store!
