    The Mrs. wants AN iMac! Sorry - couldn't edit the title...
    */


    I promised the Mrs. an iMac the day they refreshed the lineup.

    512 days later....


    I'm thinking of just pulling the trigger for her. I swore I would never buy another Mac that didn't have an SSD in it, and, I'd go with 16 GB ram, so I'm looking at $2400 for a 21.5 inch.

    It is my understanding that if a refresh does not occur by November that it is highly unlikely there will be one before Christmas. It is also my understanding that there is a 30 day return/upgrade for free policy.

    The question:
    Is there a 30-day return/upgrade policy? If so, could somebody please link to it?
    Also, what do you guys/girls think of this strategy (buy now and upgrade within 30 days if there is one, and if there isn't, then we are most likely not going to see an upgrade prior to 2013)?


    Thanks for any help/advice.

    14 day return to switch out to a newer model.

    I did it when I bought the 2009 Mac Mini and 13 days later the new Unibody 2010 Minis came out.

    Save some cash and skip the ram from apple. Purchase and install your own for considerable savings. Best buy offers a 30 day return policy. Sixty day if your a premium reward zone member. Good luck.

    If I was in your position I would purchase the iMac from Best buy. Unlike apple you have a 30 day return policy so if a new iMac is released within 30 days of your purchase, simply take it back to Best Buy for an exchange. If you can wait a little bit longer perhaps you can purchase your iMac on October 15th, that way if a new iMac comes out in November it might be early November and you still have time for the return/exchange. Here is the best buy return and exchange link.
