You should be thankful Apple is not rushing their upgrades. Do you want the computer marked to be like the mobile marked? Yesterdays purchase redundant tomorrow? I´ve bought an Imac 2008 (specs listed below) I´ve also bought a Macbook pro 17" (specs below also). For the latter product I will be able to upgrade to Solid State and 8 GB RAM in a year or two. The Imac has already proven it´s worth after the last upgrade. Ones of the reasons I´m sticking to Apple is the same reason many here are critizising them. Call it reliabilty, securing quality. Can´t you see they are consolidating products that are allready great? I have 4 words for you: I LOVE THIS COMPANY!
