Would you rather they open up the brand new computer and update it? This isnt best buy...Just called my local store and they got more in stock but they still have lion installed
Any idea why? It's been several weeks now
Debating between base model or base plus 16 gig ram
what would be the benefit of that? Used does not carry the perception of new, and no customer looking for a new is going to walk out with a used feeling the same about it.Apple doesn't open up stock and update; it would turn the system into a "used" system. Any stock already in stores will come with free upgrade coupon.
They could have a couple week supply of the SSDs with Lion flashed on them, with the bottleneck being one of the other components.Apple store
Thing is they regularly sell out ang get more
Makes me think they never had a shortage and were just weeding them out in small batches to create false shortage
So my guess is the 5-7 day online wait is just for show
