I decided to take the plunge this weekend and went to the apple store and purchased a Macbook Pro 15" with 2.3Ghz i7 750Gb HDD and 4GB of ram. They included the new OS for free from the app store. I went and installed it right away when I got home figuring I might as well get used to the new OS.
...Well this thing locked me out spent about 7 hours on the phone with these guys trying to figure out how to access the computer and nobody really knew, as it prompted for an old and new password and I never had a password on it. So all said and done I google it and find the solution myself.
The next day being the noob that I am, I call them back to make sure that I did it correctly, and out of nowhere they transfer me over to a nice lady named Sarah, she takes me through the exact steps and in 5 minutes I am up and runing and at the same point where I was when I did it myself.
Being a little annoyed with Apple at this point, I install the Incase shell case that the apple store sold me, well it makes a snapping sound every time I open it. So go to another local non apple store and buy a Speck case and it works fine.
Starting to get annoyed again, and then last night found a program that tells you when your macbook was built, in the info section in "About this apple" or something along these lines stated that the mac was built in "Early 2011" SO I check out this program and this mac was built in January of 2011. WTF?
My question to you is what would you do? Take it back and order online? I live in Canada but am going to California in a few days, should I buy it down there?
Or should I wait till the new one gets released? How long would that wait time be do you think?
Thanks for your time and sorry about the rant, I am very disappointed and frustrated
