I'm so excited. Just bought a 27in refurb i7 3.4ghz 2011 this morning using friends and family discount (best friend works for Apple in Cupertino), original price was $1869, with the discount it came to $1738..with tax and recycling fees the total was $1889.39. Good deal i thought. Anyhow, i thought i'll receive the imac by next Tuesday or Wed, thinking it will be shipped from China with free shipping. But couple hrs ago, i received a tracking number from Apple and it said to be delivered TOMORROW...woot woot...next day service??? so my take is that these refurbs are actually here in Cupertino, which is 15mins drive from where i live. Is the true? On another note, I am still debating whether i should add an additional ssd or i should pick up a R6 pegasus and run everything externally via thunderbolt (if tb are bootabled)..or i should just wait for a tb ssd externally. any inputs will be appreciated. thx.
