Will it be worth the restocking fee?

    I bought an imac 3.06 on black Friday. This will be my first mac. Since I did not do my research on when they update, it looks like (according to the buyers guide) that they will update next year.

    I mostly used my pc in the past to encode movies with handbrake.

    I called to see if I could return it (I opened the box) and they told me I could get store credit but would have to pay the restocking fee (around $200 I assume).

    If the imac was to get quad cores early next year would it be worth it in my case to pay the restocking fee?

    Not if it were my $200. You bought a fine machine, and regardless of what gets released next year (and when), you still bought a fine machine.

    Just keep the machine you have. It will do what you need it to do.

    They're always going to upgrade your machine next year. Quad could come in January, or it could come next December. If you want to play a gamble that you might be without an iMac for another year, then return it. Still, I would recommend against it.
