Those custom configured iMacs we ordered earlier in May each came with their very own “Delivers July 1” slap to the face. Hopeful of some miraculous speedup, we’ve lately become quite attached to Apple’s Store Online’s “Order Status” page. Today we checked our order and were confronted with this:
We can’t wait to stare at “Delivers July 1” in a whole new way! (Don’t mind us, we’ll have a much better attitude about the whole thing on July 2nd.)
As some of you know, we’ve switched from the idea of each having a massively-configured 17-inch MacBook Pro for everywhere to the 11-inch MacBook Air + 27-inch iMac concept (lighter when traveling and more on the desktop).
What? Oh, alright: Each of our “July 1” iMacs is configured like this:
• 3.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
• 4G of RAM (with 16GB RAM kits that have already arrived from elsewhere. Remember: Friends don’t let friends buy extra RAM from Apple. Apple’s RAM will be sent to our third-party RAM dealer for a refund.)
• 2TB 7200rpm HD
• 256GB SSD (for Mac OS X and applications)
• AMD Radeon HD 6970M 2GB GDDRS
When it comes to our Macs, we don’t mess around – and since our once-top-of-the-line MacBook Pros (1,2) have now lasted us exactly five years (another testament to Mac value and TCO) – we expect our iMacs to do the same.
