<strong>I waited weeks for my original iMac and felt sick every time I passed a store and saw one in the window.
I was at Comp USA on 5th Ave. on August 15, 1998 for the public debut of the original iMac. (Even talked to a reporter and was quoted in a New York Post
story the next day.) They had one left when I got there. But I decided to wait. I bought mine (for my wife) from J&R a week later and had it shipped out of state to save on tax.
If they have enough stock, brick-and-mortar stores are usually a better bet. In addition, even though tracking your UPS shipment cross-country is fun, nothing beats the satisfaction of walking out with a shiny new iMac box!
I am so
tempted to get a new iMac. But I have to wait until my cashflow gets going again. Why did I ever decide to leave NYC and go back to school?
